Historic hall is perfect for business meetings

If you’re looking for a meeting or conference venue then look no further than historic Ayscoughfee Hall in Spalding.

Inside are a variety of modern rooms that will accommodate up to 40 delegates.
Outside are picturesque gardens and ample car parking facilities.
Guests are provided with screens, projectors and flipcharts as well as free tea and coffee.
The hall has a long and unique history – it is thought to have been built in the early 15th century as the home of a local wool merchant.
Over the years it has continued to grow and develop, with each owner changing the building to represent fashions of the time.
This explains the Gothic-looking Victorian frontage, the Georgian ceiling best seen from the entrance hall and a host of mediaeval features.
Once home to the prestigious Johnson family, the hall spent much of its life as a private house for several families, before being purchased by the people of Spalding in the early 20th Century.
It has also served as a library, school, council offices and most recently as the district’s museum.
In 2003 the hall closed for renovation and refurbishment, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, South Holland District Council, Lincolnshire Tourism and the Friends of Ayscoughfee.
The museum opened in June 2006 to much acclaim, winning Lincolnshire’s Museum of the Year in 2007.
Recent successes include being upgraded to grade I listed status by English Heritage in January 2012.
