The Waldegrave Suite consists of the Waldegrave Drawing Room, Billiard Room and Bar, Senior Common Room and Ante Room.

The rooms can be hired separately or in combination (depending on your requirements) with a capacity of up to 350 guests.

The suite offers stunning views of the adjoining Strawberry Hill House and surrounding grounds.

Waldegrave Drawing Room

The Waldegrave Drawing Room is the centrepiece of the Waldegrave Suite, and an impressive venue for any special event.

With three enormous chandeliers spaced across an ornate high ceiling, intricately carved stone fireplace, beautiful silk wallpaper and Venetian flooring, the spacious Waldegrave Drawing Room is a truly elegant choice of venue, giving your guests a real sense of occasion.  

Billiard Room

This is a light and spacious room with a fully stocked bar hidden behind its wooden panelling. This makes the room an ideal location for drinks receptions or more informal gatherings.

As part of the Waldegrave Suite, the Billiard Room provides an area of calm during festivities, and is often used for evening buffets.

Senior Common Room

With high ceilings, impressive chandeliers, rich wallpaper and dark wood panelling, the Common Room retains the opulent quality of the Waldegrave Drawing Room, whilst providing a more intimate space for smaller groups for dining or for cocktails and canapes.

The Common Room seats up to 50 for formal dining as a standalone venue, or can be used in conjunction with the Waldegrave Drawing Room to provide additional space for larger groups.

Ante Room

After walking up the iron staircase from the grounds of Strawberry Hill House, you will find yourself in our beautiful Ante Room.

With its luxurious silk wallpaper, high ceilings, gilt-framed mirrors and pictures, and large stone fireplace, its grandeur is breath-taking.

Large white wooden sliding doors connect the Ante Room to the Waldegrave Drawing Room, making it the perfect location to receive your guests.

There’s even a grand piano available for use if required!

Please note: the Ante Room is only available for hire in conjunction with the Waldegrave Drawing Room or the Waldegrave Suite as a whole.
