The centerpiece of this remarkable space is a permanent 7m x 4m high-definition video wall and a fully integrated audio/lighting system, perfectly suited for conferences, exhibitions, product launches, private dining, award ceremonies, weddings, Christmas parties, and more! Additionally, with two 5m wide bi-fold doors, the space is perfect for vehicle access and car launches.
The estate itself has a fascinating history. In the 13th Century, it was used as a local political court complete with gallows, however by the mid-14th Century it went back to being owned by the Crown and a Royal hunting lodge was built. This is where the future Henry VIII, then aged 12, first set his eyes upon the King of Spain’s daughter, Catherine of Aragon, as she prepared to marry his brother, Arthur. Upon Arthur’s death 6 months later, Henry and Catherine were betrothed and some 30 years later she was to be banished back to the estate when the King divorced her.
In the early 1600s, King Charles I gifted the Estate to the Trumbull family and the Royal hunting lodge was incorporated into a newly built mansion house. The mansion remained as a private residence and the seat of the Marquis of Downshire. In the 1860s the old house was demolished to make way for the new and current mansion, Easthampstead Park House.
During World War II, the 7th Marquis of Downshire moved out of the mansion to allow it to be used as a refuge and school for up to 600 boys from St Paul’s school in Hammersmith.
After the war, the estate was sold to Berkshire County Council and the Mansion went through the transition of becoming a female teacher training academy, a comprehensive school and finally, a wedding and conference centre before being sold to its current owners, Active Hospitality, in 2018.
