VENUES > Syon House
Syon is one of the last great houses of London, and has been in the family of the present owners for more than 400 years. Profoundly historic, the House holds a wealth of art within its grand classical interiors, while the Park and Gardens feel like the deep countryside, although barely nine miles from Charing Cross.
Syon House is the spectacular London home of the Duke of Northumberland. The house was built in the sixteenth century on the site of the Medieval Syon Abbey, and came to the family of the present owners in 1594. Syon has many layers of history and has seen some profound changes over the centuries.
We think we have the perfect place for a couple’s special day – whether that is wedding, party or other occasion. Syon is justly proud of it reputation for hosting wonderful celebrations. We hope that you will visit us and see the facilities on offer – and fall in love with “This delicious place.”
The main season runs from April to mid-October each year, and during this time we host some beautiful ceremonies, parties and receptions. During the winter months (November to March), it is possible to host a ceremony with us, but not a reception.
Ceremonies alone. Choose Syon House for a morning (at 10am, 10.30 or 11am) or afternoon ceremony (at 3pm, 3.30pm or 4pm) in the Great Hall, State Dining Room or Private Dining Room on Fridays, Saturdays, Mondays and Tuesdays. Choose the Great Conservatory for a twilight evening ceremony on Monday to Thursday evenings at 6pm, 6.30pm or 7pm. Both Syon House and the Great Conservatory can host up to a maximum of 120 people for a civil ceremony.
Afternoon Ceremonies/ Drinks Receptions - followed by evening parties. Following an afternoon ceremony in Syon House, drinks can be served in the charming Inner Courtyard Garden – a parterre garden with central fountain and perfumed cream and white scented flowers. Alternatively in inclement weather, it is possible to use the State Apartments. If you marry elsewhere, you can opt to have an afternoon drinks reception in Syon House too.
As the sun starts to fall in the sky, the guests follow the newly married couple in formal procession via the wooded, secluded Queen’s Walk to the magnificent Great Conservatory.
Most spring and summer receptions take place in the Great Conservatory – starting after 5.30pm/ 6pm and running until midnight (with guests leaving by 1am). Adorned with palm, exotic flowers and trees, this stunning precursor to the original Crystal Palace can host 150 to 160 seated guests for dinner, or up to 200 for a standing buffet affair during the evening. Candles on tables and along pathways make for the most romantic of atmospheres – it truly is a fairy-tale setting. After dinner, guests can dance the night away.
As it is a working conservatory and glass building, the Great Conservatory is not available for daytime hire – or indeed winter bookings – and only for evening parties and ceremonies from April to mid-October each season.
Evening Receptions. You can opt to hire the Great Conservatory for an evening reception alone if you prefer. The venue is perfect for parties with between 50 and 160 guests for dinner and dancing. Alternatively for a standing affair, the capacity is 200 pax. Syon Park offers most evenings - with the exception of Bank Holidays.
