About the venue

St John’s Gate provides a beautiful historic setting for marriage and civil partnership ceremonies. The Chapter Hall with its grand fireplace, vivid stained glass windows, chandelier from the Farnese Palace in Rome and collection of paintings dating from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries, is an impressive yet welcoming ceremonial space for up to 110 guests. 

The Council Chamber is a more intimate room, spanning the arch of St John’s Gate; it seats up to 30 guests. With exquisite Whitefriars’ Glass windows, large paintings of British monarchs and gold commemorative panelling, it has a very special ambience. Special rates are available for couples wishing to hold their receptions at St John’s Gate.
