Syon is justly proud of it reputation for hosting wonderful celebrations. The main season runs from April to mid-October for 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.
Have your ceremony in the Great Hall with up to 120 guests, the State Dining Room for up to 50 guests - or Private Dining Room with 24 guests.
You can also choose the Great Conservatory for a twilight evening ceremony for up to 120 people.
Most spring and summer receptions take place in the Great Conservatory. Adorned with palm, exotic flowers and trees, this stunning building can host 160 seated guests, or up to 200 for a standing buffet.
Larger parties of up to 600 seated guests (or 800 for a standing affair), can be hosted in the Garden Room Marquee. This is a discreet bespoke party structure set in a private walled Garden to one side of Syon House.
If you long to find a piece of traditional “old world” along with tranquil quintessential “Englishness” (grand stately home, the river Thames, trees, rolling green meadows, herd of cows) and you do not want to leave London, then look no further than Syon Park.
Syon Park is an idyllic setting for many types of hospitality.
According to the type of function, numbers or guests, time of day and year, and ambience you wish to create, you can make a choice of venue from rooms inside the Duke’s residence, the Great Conservatory and Gardens or the Parkland.
