About this space
Adjoining the Divinity School is the 17th century Convocation House, formerly a meeting place for the University’s supreme legislative body.
This mesmerising space boasts a marvellous fan-vaulted ceiling and carved woodwork and with its excellent acoustics, it is the perfect place to host an elegant wedding ceremony. It provides chapel-style seating for up to 100 of your friends and family.
Adjacent to the Convocation House is the anteroom, Chancellor’s Court. Formerly the University’s courtroom, now it serves as a private entrance for ceremonies.
