A new West London event space


Graysons are proud to present The National Archives, a venue which is newly available to hire, offering a truly unique opportunity to host your meeting or event in one of the most iconic government buildings.

The building is the official archive for the UK Government, and for England and Wales, holding over 1,000 years of iconic national documents including the Domesday Book and Shakespeare’s will.

Situated alongside the river in leafy Kew, The National Archives is a year-round venue with extensive, landscaped grounds offering both daytime and evening hire. Our high-quality event and conference facilities can accommodate guests for anything from a small meeting of 10, conferences, lectures, film screenings for up to 250, gala dinners for up to 120 or standing summer receptions in the gardens for up to 300.

Events Auditorium

The six event spaces include the Events Auditorium, the Talks Rooms’, the Learning Room, the Atrium and the Gardens. Our unique offer includes optional ‘heritage experiences’ as part of our day delegate rate packages: from behind-the-scenes tours and original document displays, to themed expert talks and events.
