An excellent location for a host of events

RHS Garden Wisley is a beautiful location with opportunities for a variety of corporate and private hire events.

The Glasshouse

The Glasshouse is a cathedral-like glass structure which houses a tropical garden of more than 5,000 different cultivated plants. An elegantly striking yet practical space, it is the perfect location to make your event really memorable.

This unique environment has three climatic zones - dry temperate, moist temperate and tropical, rocky outcrops, a waterfall and a still pool – even the climate is guaranteed all year round! So whether you want a drinks reception for 500 or a dinner for 40, make The Glasshouse your first choice.

The Glasshouse is a dramatic and very different venue suited to product launches, photo-shoots, private parties and other functions.
The Glasshouse can accommodate up to 550 guests and can be booked from 7 – 11pm.

More on evening hire information

The Glasshouse Gallery offers a much smaller space for hanging exhibitions, meetings and demonstrations and includes a plasma screen that can be connected to a lap-top and a newly fitted sound system with hearing loop.

Conservatory Café

The Conservatory Café is a larger space which includes an outside seating terrace. Please note that this is available in the evening only.
The Conservatory Dining Room is a formal dining area seating 80 people and is suited to wedding receptions, private parties and family celebrations.

Evening functions

The Conservatory Café and Conservatory Dining Room are both available for private evening hire throughout the year and are perfect for any occasion demanding special treatment. The RHS Garden Wisley is an extremely unique and diverse venue that can cater for anything from corporate events to wedding receptions.
