Waterloo Hall is a truly majestic and formal room that will transport your guests back to 19th century England. Once the College dining hall, it is now home to Meetings, Receptions, Hospitality Occasions and even Corporate Team-building Sessions. Formerly known as the ‘Old Hall’, it was refurbished in 2015 as a living monument to the Battle of Waterloo, its original oak-panelled walls adorned with memorabilia. The Minstrels’ Gallery that overlooks the hall, offers the perfect vantage point from which to take remarkable photos of your event.

Waterloo Hall is a wonderfully flexible space accommodating up to 150 persons with direct access to the picturesque South Front lawns and College Gardens, ideal for entertaining your guests in the warmer seasons.
