Hidden in the ancient woodlands of Sherwood Forest, The Pumping House is a gem of Victorian industrial architecture beautifully restored into a contemporary space.

From out-of-the-ordinary weddings to grand Christmas parties.

This rare heritage location can be configured to make your vision a reality.

Built in 1909 by the Nottingham Water Department, the building retains the eclectic charm of its industrial heritage, with distinctive red-brick frontage, an original combustor chimney and full-length arched windows.

The painstakingly restored interiors can be configured to create a truly personal event.
