Darwin Hall


Darwin Hall is a premier event venue located at Darwin Lake, Derbyshire.

Built from reclaimed Welsh stone, the grand, church-like facade gives way to a spacious entrance porch and large reception area. This lower reception room, which has a beautiful reclaimed oak cladding feature wall decorated with oak panelling, can be utilised as either a single space, or partitioned to create two cosier areas for both large and small scale events and parties.

Further reception spaces are available on the first floor of Darwin Hall, with seating for up to 130 guests at circular dining tables. All reception spaces at the hall boast comfortable and stylish carpeting, as well as spacious, wooden dance floor areas. The first floor reception space is ideally suited for conferences, with the well-lit alcove acting as the ideal spot for erecting a drinks bar.

The Darwin Hall interiors have been specially designed with luxury and elegance in mind, perfectly complementing the surrounding rural landscape. Both the ground floor and first floor reception spaces are illuminated by large windows which command spectacular views over Darwin Lake, and the beautiful green countryside of Derbyshire and the Peak District. The Hall is perfect for corporate days, product launches, conferences and team building events.
