The Old Parsonage

One of our approved venues, which can be used for marriages and other civil ceremonies.

Oxford’s 17th-century Old Parsonage combines original charm and character with all the luxury, amenities and technology available to an independently owned 5-star hotel.

Located in the heart of historic Oxford, sitting proudly at the head of the beautiful boulevard St Giles, the Old Parsonage is nestled amongst the city’s most famous landmarks and activities.

A striking balance of old and new, each of the 35 individually designed bedrooms and suites feature luxurious handmade beds, rich natural fabrics, unique Oxford sketches and magnificent marble bathrooms.

Tucked away in the serene courtyard of the Old Parsonage Hotel, you’ll find the Garden Room, a private dining space with a pavilion encircled by greenery. A charming and hidden setting for an intimate lunch al fresco with family and friends, with space for up to eight seated guests.

With its original stone fireplace, leaded-light windows and walls adorned with a carefully curated selection of oil paintings, the Pike Room retains the same Bloomsbury club ambiance of the restaurant and bar, but with a private country house feel.
