New Space

With its unique history, dramatic architecture and spectacular location on the summit of Stag Hill, Guildford Cathedral is one of Surrey’s premier venues for meetings and events and, from September 2015, it took on a whole new dimension, with the arrival of The Marquee.


The Marquee is a clear-span structure, so none of your guests will find themselves sitting behind a pillar. The walls and ceiling have ivory linings, making it easy to decorate the interior to match your chosen colour scheme or corporate identity. Clear window walls at the front look out onto the Cathedral, providing a spectacular backdrop to your event - particularly at night, when the exterior is floodlit.


Standing on the broad sweep of the Cathedral’s Front Lawn, the Marquee provides 585 sqm of event space: if you need more, there’s plenty of room to add another similar structure alongside. Plus, you have use of our acres of beautiful grounds, which offer glorious views over the town and surrounding countryside.
