Rules of the space

We recommend the use of our own approved DJ's who are used to working with the Inn's unique spaces. We do welcome clients to bring their own bands and entertainment for their events. There is a restriction on open air amplified music in the Walks, but other types such as a string quartet work very well.

We allow events to run until midnight, when the site should be vacated.

For events finishing later at 11pm or later, staff taxis must be covered.

For events larger than 350 guests, additional security, cloakroom attendant and toilet attendant need to be allocated



The Honourable Society of Gray’s Inn is one of London’s hidden treasures. It was founded over 600 years ago, and offers an oasis of calm steeped in centuries of tradition.

Today, Gray’s Inn offers the finest facilities and most impressive corporate conference and private function services in a magnificent and welcoming setting.

This prestigious and exquisite venue is available for a wide variety of corporate and private events all year round. Our innovative meeting, conferencing, banqueting and wedding service provides a personal and professional consultation to ensure impeccable planning and attention to detail, allowing you complete peace of mind.

We have six event rooms available to hire, from our magnificent Elizabethan Hall to the Rose Heilbron Room which offers the very latest in video conferencing technology. Whatever the event, we have a room to cater for your requirements.

Gray’s Inn gardens are known as 'The Walks' and were originally designed in 1606 by the then Treasurer, Sir Francis Bacon, whose statue can be seen in the South Square. The Walks remain among the largest private gardens in London: five acres of perfectly maintained park entered through a pair of impressive iron gates.

During the summer 'The Walks' are equipped with a graceful and elegant marquee which is hard floored and carpeted throughout. The versatile structure holds endless opportunities for a wide variety of summer events.

The Walks and the marquee offer a distinguished setting for private and corporate parties, wedding receptions, concerts, barbecues and other outdoor events.

We have limited availability for 2018 Summer Marquee and Wedding dates, as well as day and evening availability in Hall from June to September.
