Ashmolean

The Ashmolean Museum has been telling human stories since 1683 - why not add yours? The world’s oldest public museum is home to incredibly rich and diverse collections ranging from Egyptian mummies to Pre-Raphaelite paintings to contemporary art. Situated in the heart of Oxford, on the corner of Beaumont Street and St Giles, the Ashmolean is a spectacular setting for entertaining and can host a variety of events. Opulent and intriguing galleries contrasted and complemented by light-filled contemporary spaces make the Ashmolean the perfect venue for any occasion including corporate dinners, drinks receptions and wedding and civil ceremonies.
