Ripley Arts Centre has traditionally acted as a period wedding venue, the main event taking place in the elegant Georgian Music Room based on a design at Hampton Court Palace. This room provides a stunning vista onto the GARDEN with its magnificent willow tree, classical statue and fountain.

Guests and conference delegates alike are free to walk around the constantly changing art exhibitions, offering a refreshing and unusual atmosphere during their stay.
