Today we are hosting the Renfrewshire business networking meeting at the beautiful Paisley Abbey. The meeting will be in the collection of private rooms known as The Place of Paisley. This area of the historic abbey is now available for hire as a conference and event venue right in the heart of Scotland.
Paisley Abbey's origins date back to 1163 and the signing of a charter by Walter Fitzalan, the High Steward of Scotland.
In 1245, the priory was raised to the status of an Abbey dedicated to St. Mirin
The Abbey was also a centre of learning and it is believed that William Wallace, was educated by the monks of Paisley Abbey.
King Robert II of Scotland, the first of the Stewart monarchs was born after the tragic death if his mother in the Abbey infirmary. For that reason, the Abbey claims to be the 'cradle of the Royal House of Stewart.' Our present Queen is descended from him. In fact, the Abbey is the final resting place of six High Stewards of Scotland.
The Place of Paisley is the sole remaining part of the extensive monastery associated with the Abbey.
Today, it is a beautiful and historically important venue for meetings, dinners, concerts and corporate events. There are several elegant and spacious rooms leading off of an impressive light gallery, which can be used to hold dinners for up to 45 people.
The catering arrangements at the Abbey are very flexible and anything from a sandwich lunch to a banquette can be arranged.
“I have a huge amount of experience putting on events in historic buildings and to get access to a collection of stunning rooms with a history that is so significant to Scotland, is an incredible find. For it to be available with this level of flexibility and with this incredible value for money is almost unrivalled. I believe it to be a truly special events venue that will wow your clients and staff alike.” Simeon Rosset MD Rosset Bespoke Ltd
