HMS Victory Venue Hire

HMS Victory

Aligned with the top end of the market to ensure that adequate value is placed on the uniqueness of the venue whilst also protecting the value of the brand, HMS Victory is now available for selected privileged hire. 
There are 4 spaces that are available, and these can be used in a variety of combinations;
  • Nelson’s Great Cabin will accommodate up to 22 people
  • Hardy’s Cabin will accommodate up to 12 people
  • The Lower Gun Deck will accommodate up to 102 people (minimum of 50 guests) 
  • The Quarterdeck will accommodate up to 120 people

Vice Admiral Nelson’s Great Cabin

This occupied one quarter of the Upper Gun Deck, and is where Nelson would have lived in relative comfort during his time as Admiral in command of the Fleet. These are once in a lifetime experiences, remembered by all of those who have attended, indeed exceeding even the highest of expectations.
We involve clients at all stages of the arrangements, from advising on the style of invitation design they would like through to picking the menu, choosing the wines, and having an input of the set list for the quartet.

Hardy’s Cabin

Captain Thomas Hardy was the Captain of HMS Victory, known as the ‘Flag Captain’. Hardy’s cabin is located at the rear of the Quarterdeck, and was the tactical control room for the whole ship.
The cabin is not as spacious or luxurious as that of Nelson, but it conveys all of the rich history and heritage of the ship.
It is beautifully laid out with authentic period and reproduction furniture, as well as an array of original artefacts.

The Lower Gun Deck

The Lower Gun Deck will accommodate up to 102 guests
The Lower Gun Deck allows guests the chance to dine at mess tables, where in the past the crew of Victory would have eaten their rations, on tables slung between the 32-pounder guns. These were Victory’s heaviest guns, each weighing in at 3.75 tons.
Dining on the Lower Gun Deck is a completely different experience to the Great Cabin, with less of the luxurious surroundings, yet set in perhaps the most wonderfully evocative area of the ship, full of the atmosphere of how the lower rates would have lived and dined.

The Quarterdeck

Stand in the open air, at the heart of HMS Victory’s command and control centre and enjoy a reception for up to 120 on the Quarterdeck. Take your mind back to that fateful day on 21st October 1805, and try to imagine how history unfolded, standing on the very spot where Vice Admiral Nelson fell.
It is hard to convey the rich history and heritage that we have to offer, without arranging a site visit and walking you through the experience, so please get in touch and we would be only too willing to facilitate your needs.
Please be aware that these are for indication purposes only and that most events are bespoke, created after full consultation with the client, ensuring that all of their needs are catered for.
For further information, or to discuss a potential event please telephone us on 02392 839766 or email us at venues@nmrn.org.uk.
Prices are available on application, and a 10% discount to charitable organisations or a 20% discount to naval charities is available.
Please note: HMS Victory is NOT available for wedding hire.
