The Italianate revival style of Victorian-era architecture – think tall Ionic columns, a very high ceiling and extensive hand-laid, detailed tiling – creates an opulent atmosphere in this appropriately named space. Our Long Room is inspiring in its size. Originally a thriving hub of trade activity, it has remained an important commercial location for over one hundred years.
Even with a permanent exhibition in the room’s centre, an amazing replica ship that can be explored, there is plenty of space for gala dinners and large get-togethers. The ship represents the common experience of a journey in search of a new life and is a fascinating focal point of the space, sure to spark interesting discussion. As with events held in the Grand Foyer, adjoining galleries can be kept open for discovery.
