Welcome to Ware Priory
Ware Priory is one of Hertfordshire’s premier wedding and conference venues and is where the past and present unite. If you are looking for a venue steeped in atmosphere with period architecture dating back to medieval times, or a modern and spacious venue with all the latest hi-tech facilities, then Ware Priory is for you. Set in seven acres of picturesque riverside gardens, it is the perfect place for a romantic wedding and an equally inspirational venue for a conference or meeting.
Ware Priory itself is a Grade I listed building which has a distinctive choice of individual character rooms named after significant people in the history of the building. Painstakingly restored in the mid-1990s, some of the original building materials, including wattle and daub, stonework and Victorian murals have been uncovered and preserved as features of interest.
Adjacent to Ware Priory is Fletcher’s Lea. Built in 2006, it offers a bright and contemporary atmosphere for any event or function. It hosts weddings, exhibitions, conferences, Product launches and concerts and can also be used as a 220-seater cinema.
The tranquil surroundings of both buildings, situated within seven acres of picturesque riverside gardens, provide a beautiful and relaxed setting for any event whether it be a traditional, historical or contemporary one.
Ware is in East Hertfordshire, four miles from the county town of Hertford. It is served by the A10 and A414 and is only a 15-minute drive from both the M25 and M11.
