The Garden Suite is approached through the magnificent Tropical House and Mediterranean Terrace House, and is the ideal choice for larger social functions, accommodating up to 500 guests. The generous space and beautiful setting make it an ideal choice for awards ceremonies and exhibitions.
The stage area, complete with private dressing room, is a real boon for all types of entertainment or for high level conferences, and the Suite also has its own special bar area, the Palm Lounge. Originally built as a glasshouse, this space is ideal for pre-lunch/dinner drinks, or as a post event bar or registration area for professional events.
The versatile space can be divided into sections, giving a myriad of options for your event, for instance allowing the addition of breakout or catering spaces.
The Garden Suite was originally the Gardens’ nursery glasshouses, where plants were propagated and nurtured ready to be placed on display in the show houses. These buildings were converted to their current use as an arresting event space in 1987 and the Garden Suite was officially inaugurated by HM Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother on 30 April 1988.
