Party in historical splendour

Posted On May 05 By Hertford Castle Party in historical splendour

Situated in the heart of the town centre, Hertford’s historic Castle is the perfect venue for a special birthday bash.

Whether it’s to commemorate a significant milestone or simply an excuse to gather family and friends together we believe our stunning 15th century venue is the perfect location for a birthday celebration.

Situated on the banks of the River Lea, the Grade 1 listed Castle offers superb value for money and can be configured to your own requirements. For a big bash the Downshire Suite – comprising the Mayor’s Parlour, Salisbury Room and Conservatory - can comfortably hold up to 100 people. Alternatively, on weekdays, the three rooms can be hired individually for more intimate gatherings.

Whatever option you go for we guarantee the ambiance and character of the rooms, which were remodelled in Georgian style by the Marquess of Downshire in the reign of George III, will wow your guests. And if the weather is kind partygoers can spill out on to the beautifully kept lawns of the grounds to enjoy the gardens and riverside location.

A variety of catering options are available from “bring your own” to hiring outside caterers to rustle up a gourmet feast in our fully equipped kitchens. (We can recommend caterers but there is no obligation to use them.) For a completely hassle-free option you can even get one of Hertford’s many take away outlets to deliver your birthday meal! Alcohol can be purchased through the venue or alternatively you can provide your own – for a flat corkage fee of £150.

Prices start from just £90 per hour for an evening weekday party (£150 per hour at weekends) for the entire Downshire Suite or £60 per hour for a single room (available weekdays only). Included in the cost are the services of two members of staff who will ensure your event runs smoothly. At the weekend guests can use the 30 parking spaces at the Castle free of charge alternatively there is plenty of parking nearby.
