The Venue

Tucked away in 80 acres of beautifully kept grounds, Chicheley Hall, Chicheley is ideal for your great getaway or grand event. Its secluded location offers a lovely respite from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, while its proximity to the M1 and fast-rail links to London Euston from nearby Milton Keynes provide the convenience you require.

A stunning Grade I listed mansion, Chicheley Hall is regarded as one of the finest examples of early 18th Century architecture. Its current hall dates back to the 1700’s and is truly impressive for any event. (No wonder that Chicheley Hall has been used as a location for such film and television projects as Pride and Prejudice, The Meaning of Life, and Black Beauty.)

Coupled with 48 individually furnished bedrooms overlooking our lovely gardens, modern amenities, you are guaranteed an unforgettable experience at Chicheley Hall, Chicheley.
