  4. LTW - ROSE & CROWN (The Orangery) (2)

    The four-star LTW! "Loved & Recommended" Legacy Rose & Crown Hotel in Salisbury recently unveiled its brand new waterfront event space The Orangery and newly refurbished Cathedral Suite - if you're looking for a beautiful Salisbury wedding venue beside the river with the most stunning views, then no look further - the Legacy Rose & Crown has it all!


    The Cathedral Suite has been decorated with neutral tones so the space acts as a blank canvas for any event with The Orangery offering panoramic views of the hotel’s landscaped gardens, the River Avon and Salisbury Cathedral. A removeable partition wall allows The Orangery and Cathedral Suite to operate as one large space or two separate areas, helping to expand the venue's private event capacity to a 120-person reception space.


    A wooden gazebo, fitted with lighting and speakers, has been introduced to the sweeping gardens, freshly landscaped as part of the venue’s latest refurbishment project, adding to the hotel’s romantic setting. As warmer weather rolls in, guests of the hotel can enjoy the breath-taking Salisbury scenery, the inspiration behind artist John Constable’s famous piece ‘Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows’, with a punt along the river thanks to the Salisbury Punting team who depart from a mooring outside the hotel throughout the summer.


    Derek McNeill, General Manager of The Legacy Rose & Crown Hotel, commented: “The Orangery and Cathedral Suite have been specifically designed to maximise the picture-perfect views we are so lucky to have. Neutral tones, French doors and windows wrapping around more than half of the venue allow the riverside backdrop to be a living art installation, providing the ideal indoor-outdoor space for events making the most of our beautiful location on the River Avon. The newly refurbished terrace and landscaped gardens extend our offering further and I’d be so bold to say that we are the lucky proprietors of one of, if not the, best location in Salisbury".
