The HAC is home to the Honourable Artillery Company, the oldest regiment in the British Army. The 18th Century Armoury House, true to its Georgian style, is steeped in a long and fascinating history.

Armoury House has a number of unique and beautiful spaces for all types and scale of ceremony. The Long Room is an elegant, historic setting, perfect for your wedding celebrations, seating up to 150 guests for dinner. This richly decorated, oak-panelled room features a minstrel’s gallery, stone fireplaces and large picture windows framing breathtaking views of the Artillery Garden and out to the City beyond.

Smaller rooms such as the Queen’s Room and Ante Room are licensed for wedding and civil ceremonies and are ideal for celebrations of a more intimate nature. In addition, the HAC is framed by the stunning six acre Artillery Garden. Perfect for a champagne reception on the lawn or simply for the fabulous views it affords from inside the House, it is a unique feature that sets the HAC apart and which will help make your wedding memorable.
