A distinguished meeting and conference venue in the heart of Oxford

Rhodes House is just the place for you and your colleagues to come when you want an exceptional backdrop for a corporate event. Our unique setting, flexible function space, the privacy of an exclusive venue, menus from some of Oxford’s finest catering companies, and customised technology solutions provide a flawless conference or meeting experience. Our knowledgeable events team is dedicated to working with you to create a bespoke event that meets your needs.

With connected rooms of varying sizes Rhodes House is perfect for any business function. The impressive Milner Hall with its raised stage and semi-circular carved table, vaulted ceiling and stone-mullioned windows overlooking the courtyard garden is ideal for larger meetings, while the book-lined walls and warm wood paneling of the adjoining Atlantic Room and Beit Room offer a more intimate setting.

The style and history of the venue make it a special destination for corporate events, and whether your event is a private lunch or dinner for senior executives, a board meeting, a reception for clients or employees,  or a full-scale product launch, Rhodes House will make it unforgettable.
