Room Layouts & Capacities

One of the largest Gothic cathedrals in Europe, Winchester Cathedral is home to a host of stunning event spaces:

The Marquee on the Lawn is a beautiful, temporary event space nestled in the gardens of the Refectory, with transparent walls which be removed to open out onto the grounds. Use the Marquee in conjunction with the neighbouring Refectory for receptions or dinners with dancing into the evening.

The Paul Woodhouse Suite is located next door to the Refectory and has it’s own private terrace which looks out over the Cathedral. It’s glass walls and high ceilings make this space bright and airy. Perfect for meetings or dinners.

The newly erected Wessex Centre opened in 2016 and is a welcome modern addition to this traditional venue. It has all the AV facilities you’d need for a meeting or conference as well as tons of natural daylight to keep your attendees focused.

For corporate away days, there is ample outdoor space with 360˚ views of the cathedral, perfect for escaping the hustle and bustle of London. Get your attendees outside for some team building activities or simply take a stroll through the gardens. We loved the little tucked away benches and bridges where you can pause to take a breath.


Less than a 15 minute walk or 8 minute taxi journey from Winchester Train Station.
