It is also perfectly suited for guests to retire to in-between the Blessing or Ceremony and the turnaround of the marquee venue for the evening reception. Alternatively, to simply impress your guests, it may be used merely on arrival as a stunning introduction to your day before entering the marquee.
For events of a Corporate nature, The Palace is often used as a registration area for Exhibitions and Conferences that take place in the Marquee as well providing the ideal location for breakout rooms and smaller seminars than require more privacy away from the main conference area. For Corporate Dinners and Charity Functions, the Great Hall lends itself to a Champagne and cocktail reception prior to the dinner commencing in the Royal Marquee. So whatever your corporate requirements you can rest assured that the Palace and Marquee provide the ultimate venue for your day.
