About the venue
The HAC is a quite exceptional wedding, civil partnership and private party venue, offering the ambience and exclusivity of a magnificent country house yet in a superb, central London location.
Built in 1735, Armoury House at the HAC is steeped in a long and fascinating history. The largest of its elegant rooms, the Long Room, offers the perfect setting for both ceremonies and receptions for up to 150 guests. This richly decorated, oak-panelled room features a minstrel’s gallery, stone fireplaces and huge picture windows from which guests can enjoy lovely views of the HAC’s gardens and out to the City beyond.
Smaller rooms such as the attractive Queen's Room and Ante Room are also licensed for civil ceremonies or are ideal in their own right for smaller, more intimate wedding receptions.
The Prince Consort Rooms can also be hired for weddings and civil partnerships either on their own or in conjunction with Armoury House. Seating up to 350 people, the Prince Consort Rooms are ideal for larger receptions and are particularly suitable for those ceremonies which need more of a contemporary blank canvas than the Long Room.
On Sundays the HAC can be hired for kosher or Asian wedding receptions and we have a list of accredited caterers who would be able to assist.
