The Burgess Room
The stunning Burgess Room is our signature room. It hosts a selection of the original moulds used in the Burleigh factory from their 130+ years of manufacturing on the site.
The room is located on the upper floor and is on the same level as the lift, and therefore accessible to everyone. It houses wooden tables and wooden cushioned chairs. Banqueting capacity is 70 people.
The Regal Peacock
The Regal Peacock is our largest room. It's a beautiful bright room full of natural light from the many windows that can be seen from the front of the building. A selection of the Burleigh archive collection is housed in this space.
The room hosts wooden tables and wooden cushioned chairs and is located on the upper floor. It is the on the same level as the lift which means it is accessible to all. Banqueting capacity is 90 people.
The Arden Mezzanine
The Arden Mezzanine is a lovely open space area located above the Burleigh Tea Rooms, and has a relaxed, informal feel. The flexibility of this room could transform it into a buffet area, children's area, space for a photo booth or games area, or a dance floor, to name but a few ideas.
Consisting of four very large tables with benches, this room is not located on the same floor as the lift and therefore careful consideration of your guests is required when booking this area. Banqueting capacity is 30 people.
A unique and flexible space with an informal feel, the Davenport Gallery is ideal for a drinks reception, or a space to display your seating plan or gift table. It can also be used as a quiet room with comfy sofas, or as a perfect spot for your sweet trolley, candy buffet or photo booth.
The Tea Rooms and canal side
The Tea Rooms are located below the Arden Mezzanine. The Tea Rooms are accessed via double doors at ground level which open out onto our picturesque canal side, with additional outdoor tables and chairs. It's a beautiful spot to sit outside on a summers evening. Maximum capacity 36 people
