The Burgess Room
The stunning Burgess Room is our signature room. It hosts a selection of the original moulds previously used in the Burleigh factory from their 130+ years of manufacturing on the site.
You may recognise The Burgess Room made famous as the judging room used on the TV show, The Great Pottery Throw Down, or from one of the many other British TV shows and series it's featured in.
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. Maximum capacity for ceremony is 60 people and for banqueting 60 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. The maximum capacity for ceremony is 120 people and banqueting is 90 people.
The Arden Mezzanine
The Arden Mezzanine is a lovely open space area located above the Packing House Café, 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. Maximum capacity for ceremony is 20 people and for 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, or even can be used a quiet area with plenty of comfy sofas to relax on.
Why not use it as an area to display your seating plan or gift table or a space to keep children amused with some play activities. It’s also a perfect spot for those individual touches - a sweet trolley, candy buffet or photo booth. Maximum capacity is 20 people.
The Canal Side
Overlooking the Trent and Mersey this picturesque location has outdoor tables and chairs overlooking the water and is a beautiful spot to sit and relax during the day or early evening.
