About the Venue

We have three great spaces to help you create your perfect wedding celebration, party, conference, or corporate event, catering for 30–230 guests.

Main Hall

The large hall is spacious, light and airy with generous ceiling heights. The clean, modern décor offers a minimal backdrop that can be decorated as you wish. The fully air-conditioned space means your guests will remain comfortable even when the dance floor heats up. The hall seats 140 people dining or 230 standing. This space is great for wedding receptions, parties, charity events, or corporate events such as conferences, lectures, workshops and away days.

The Bar

The L-shaped bar area, with a view and balcony overlooking the River Lea, has lots of character. Recently renovated, it is adorned with rowing regalia, pictures and medals won down the years. The bar, which seats a further 70 guests or 100 more informally, can be hired on its own or with the main hall or study area. Great for wedding receptions, birthday parties, or corporate events.

Study Area

A quiet, modern and intimate space with its own balcony and view overlooking the River Lea can cater for up to 35 guests. It is perfect for seminars, away days, small intimate parties, or informal lunches.

Catering and Drinks

The Boathouse has a fully equipped kitchen and well-stocked bar licenced until 12.30am. We have a list of in-house caterers and can offer a range of all-inclusive packages via our event planners Luminosa. Brochure available on request.


The boathouse is fully accessible with a lift to the main hall and bar area, and disabled toilets on both the ground and first floors.
