The Great Fosters Estate: entrance

About

The Great Fosters Estate is a fantastic venue for meetings, conferences, team building and more. Its enviable location, less than 15 minutes from London Heathrow or 30 minutes from London Waterloo and near to the M25, M4 and M3 and its flexible contemporary meeting spaces ensure that the estate is the perfect choice for any event.

Great Fosters is a Grade I listed building shrouded in Tudor history. Originally the Royal Hunting Lodge of Henry VIII, it is most likely where he courted Anne Boleyn and of course you cannot overlook the personal crest of Queen Elizabeth I above the front of the property too.

Today, Great Fosters is a magnificent boutique hotel set in 50 acres of glorious gardens, which include a Saxon moat, lake and grassed amphitheatre.  Self-contained, The Coach House offers unbeatable privacy. The ground floor has three bespoke meeting rooms and conference lounge, which open on to a walled garden where lunch can be served al fresco during the summer. If you are looking for an unusual setting for your next meeting the beautiful 14th century Tithe Barn provides a dramatic setting for any event.

With a high vaulted ceiling and exposed beams delegates will definitely be wowed by the unique surroundings.  Lunch can be taken in the Painted Hall or Orangery.
