Hospitality and Entertainment at Gosford House

Incentive and Corporate Events

Hospitality and Entertainment


Set in 5,500 acres of land, Gosford House has been home to the Wemyss family since 1808. Built to entertain guests and host fabulous parties, our doors reopened in 2010 to offer Scottish hospitality to international guests.

Whether you are looking for black tie grandeur or party informality, Gosford House can provide the back drop you need for your event, from a celebratory gala dinner to a BBQ for several hundred, we have areas inside and outside that suit all types of functions.

Capacities for gala dinners:

  • Dining room: 100 guests on rounds / 36 on one long table / 60 on two banquet tables
  • Octagon room: 48 guests on rounds / 20 banquet-style
  • Billiard room: 40 guests on rounds

With the octagon room immediately adjacent to the main dining room, we can host larger dinners for 150 guests over the two rooms.

For large scale dinners where guest numbers exceed 150 or require that number to be seated in one room marquees can be erected on the lawns adjacent to the house. You will still have access to the house for the drinks reception and dancing post-dinner.

We have built glass marquees for award ceremonies and dinners for up to 600 guests as well as traditional style marquees to host several hundred for dinner and dancing…

Hospitality and Entertainment


Similar arrangements to the dinners can be offered, for less formal events more guests can be seated inside café-style.

Although the Scottish weather can be unpredictable lunches can be served on the balconies. The west balcony has views across the Firth of Forth to Edinburgh and beyond and can host up to 100 seated guests. You are safe in the knowledge that if the weather did turn you have the ability to be seated inside.
