A conference is more than just a meeting of people. It’s about location, planning and communication.

Here at Knebworth we understand this and work with you to bring these elements together to ensure that your event runs as smoothly as possible. Our House, Garden Terrace Barn and 16th century Tithe Barns provide the perfect setting for conferences of up to 200 delegates with full access to AV equipment.

Knebworth business venues

We provide a wide range of private and corporate events at Knebworth in four distinct venues:

Knebworth House

There are few more romantic places in the British Isles to hold your event that at Knebworth House. If you're looking for a classic dinner seating up to 60, a seminar of 100, or a reception for 200, within 30 miles of London, you've come to the right place.

Knebworth House's Jacobean Banqueting Hall, one of the most beautiful rooms in the country, has played host to guests from Queen Elizabeth I to Queen Elizabeth II. You will be dining at the same fireside as Prime Ministers, artists, authors, philosophers, explorers, joining one of England's most illustrious guest books.

Also available are the Edwardian Dining Parlour, designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens, and the Victorian Library of Sir Edward Bulwer Lytton, one of the 19th Century's formost novelists and statesmen.

Why not begin your evening on the sunken lawns of the formal gardens? This slendid backdrop provides a sumptuous setting for drinks, croquet and string quartets.
