    Attended a wedding here last weekend - a venue steeped in history in the middle of busy Holborn but once you cross the threshold you could be anywhere in the UK. Serene gardens that feel a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the city and ample free parking for wedding guests!! Plus if you arrive before noon you can swerve the congestion charge! The catering and hospitality was excellent and we all had a lovely day.

    We had incredible support organizing an event at Gray's Inn. Many thanks for accommodating all our needs, from visiting the rooms to last minute catering/room layout requests. It was wonderful working with the team, and many thanks to the Sales and Events coordinator, Isabela.

    It is a Court of Barristers offices. It is ancient set of buildings very well maintained. Once inside, it is as modern as any modern house. Very warm and cosy

    Gray's Inn has to be the primary hangout for Lawyers summer parties. My steel drum band has covered many receptions at this venue and also some wedding receptions. Excellent grounds with mature trees and a huge marquee for events.
