Beautiful and functional conference & meeting venues in Hertfordshire
Every business needs time and space away from the daily routine to develop ideas and review direction, and we have the space for your business to meet, focus and find the inspiration you need. Our conference rates are very competitive and include room hire, full catering options and regular servings of tea and coffee throughout the day. We also supply all the necessary conference equipment and stationery as well as cordials, iced water and mints in your conference or meeting room.
We have two distinct conference and meeting venues situated within seven acres of picturesque riverside gardens. These tranquil surroundings make Ware Priory the perfect place to absorb information without the interruptions of everyday life.
Fletcher’s Lea provides a bright and contemporary atmosphere that can be used as one entire suite for up to 220 people in a theatre style, or it can be divided into two or three separate meeting rooms with full AV facilities available in all areas.
At 178m2, Fletcher’s Lea is one of the largest meeting venues in Hertfordshire and provides suitable space for exhibitions, product launches and cinematic projection. Fletcher’s Lea is a standalone building which affords exclusivity as all catering and bar facilities are housed within it. Additionally, there is a private terrace offering views over the River Lea. It can also be used as a concert hall and regularly features music and literary events. The building has been fully equipped with audiovisual equipment and has complimentary Wi-Fi available for all delegates.
Ware Priory itself is a historic 14th Century Grade 1 listed building with the Priory Hall, the Garden Room, the Conservatory and four other meeting rooms available offering almost 500m2 of conference space in just one building.
Ware Priory was extensively renovated in the early 1990s and some of the original building materials, including wattle and daub, have been uncovered and preserved as features of interest. Conference delegates also have access to and views across seven acres of picturesque riverside gardens.
The building contains the offices of Ware Town Council including the Council Chamber itself, with its imposing official layout. The Chamber offers a quirky setting for any meeting or conference. Complimentary Wi-Fi is available for all delegates.
We offer a first class catering service via our award-winning partners, Seasoned. The Conference Packages offer a varied menu but if any of your delegates have specific dietary requirements then Seasoned would be more than willing to discuss alternatives.
If you have no room preference for your conference or meeting we will allocate the best facility to meet your booking requirement. However, if you would like to view the facilities prior to booking then an appointment can be made by using the Contact Us section on this site.
