Rhodes House

Rhodes House is a magnificent, exclusive, year-round venue located in the heart of Oxford. It has proved popular for meetings, product launches, training and recruitment events, as well as corporate hospitality. Successful events have been hosted by organisations of varying size and sector, including major finance companies, international medical professionals and government bodies. The house can be hired for private celebrations, dinners and garden parties. We also welcome enquiries for wedding ceremonies and receptions year round.

Rhodes House is a building steeped in history. As the headquarters of one of the world’s most prestigious international scholarship programmes, it has supported the education of world leaders, Nobel scientists and others at the forefront of many professions, all of whom enjoyed using the wonderful facilities.

Completed in 1928, the house itself resembles a Cotswold mansion and is surrounded by glorious walled gardens where a magnificent and colourful floral display is a highlight.

The flexible space includes the impressive Milner Hall, seating up to 150 for dinner and 250 for a reception. The walls are adorned with portraits of famous leaders, including Nelson Mandela, who visited and wrote of his ‘unforgettable experience’.

There are two smaller rooms, the Atlantic Room and the Beit Room, which are ideal for smaller functions of around 60-80 guests.

This venue offers facilities for hybrid/virtual meetings.
