Royal Holloway is an inspiring venue for any event or occasion.
The venue offers a superb blend of modern conference facilities and stunning, immaculately preserved Victorian architecture. Built around two quadrangles, the iconic, Grade 1 listed Founder’s Building is widely recognised as one of the UK’s most spectacular university buildings.
Coupled with a portfolio of versatile meeting and function spaces, the venue provides a unique retreat for every occasion, from small meetings for as few as 10 people, to large annual conferences and gala dinners for up to 400.
Royal Holloway offers a wide range of flexible, state-of-the-art meeting rooms, many of which include exhibition, break-out and networking spaces alongside the main meeting room. All rooms are equipped with audio-visual facilities and free wi-fi and a dedicated events team is on hand to provide support throughout every event.
The historic Picture Gallery boasts one of the finest private collections of Victorian art the country has to offer and is a popular choice for banquets of up to 120 people, while the original College Dining Hall is a perfect venue for a larger banquet, reception or party. With space for up to 180 seated guests, the vast, beautiful blue high ceilings with their ornate white fixtures and subtle décor provide the perfect backdrop on which to create a unique sense of occasion.
The venue offers a range of delicious food and drink options to suit every occasion from working breakfasts to three course gala dinners. Prepared in-house by our award-winning team of chefs, the menus boast a diverse range of dishes to cater for all tastes and dietary requirements, featuring the very best in seasonal produce. A further four bars, cafés and restaurants across the campus, can provide an interesting alternative to event hospitality.
During student vacations, the venue has an excellent selection of over 2,500 en-suite and standard bedrooms, all conveniently located near to the meeting and catering facilities. The on-site guest house has an additional 24 en-suite bedrooms, which are available throughout the year.
The venue can cater for a variety of sporting activities, with a multi-use sports hall as well as floodlit outdoor pitches and courts which provide all-weather playing surfaces for a wide range of sports. The location in 135 acres of parkland, also provides an ideal outside space for team building activities.
Conveniently located close to major transport routes means that travelling to and from Royal Holloway by car, bus or rail is easy. A shuttlebus service runs from the venue to Egham train station, located just a mile away where there is a regular train service directly into London Waterloo and Reading. Buses to several destinations depart from right outside the University’s main entrance, including route 8 to Heathrow. The venue is also very close to the M25, M3, M4, Heathrow and Windsor and there is ample free on-site car parking.
