Cornwallis Venue Hire

  Upper Holloway

What makes our venue so special?

Cornwallis has a cosy feeling Swiss cottage style log cabin building, with high ceilings and a natural wooden feel throughout. Situated at the side of Cornwallis Square Park and a short walk from Holloway Road, the venue is self-contained with a 3G style pitch to the front and adventure playground to the rear. The building hosts one square-shaped hall and large kitchen. Outside we have a floodlit sports pitch that can be used for group games and multisports.

Cornwallis Adventure Playground is an ideal venue to hold your event, whether it’s a training day, band practice, holding a community meeting,  workshop, running a fitness class or children’s party.
