Originally Stables and a Coach House, today these buildings have been transformed into an English Palladian style set of Reception rooms called the Gallery with seated dining for up to 180 guests.

Adjacent to the Gallery, a full bar, dance floor, and outdoor seating area complete the event space. Ideal for weddings, balls, dances and large parties.

The Georgian era is often referred to as The Age of Elegance. The most important element in Georgian Interiors is perfect proportion alongside carefully balanced colours.

Norwood Park's Georgian rooms follow these rules with decorative features including plaster and stucco work, elaborate friezes, vast doorways, gilding and marble effect paintwork.
