Weaving Floor

The Weaving Floor is the most sought after and exclusive of Dovecot’s spaces, not least due to its stunning Victorian vaulted ceiling and colourful wool spool wall displays.

This area of the building once housed the historic Old Town swimming baths and spectator’s gallery. Normally reserved for the Dovecot weavers, this space is re-imagined as an events venue where we have hosted fashion shows, award and gala dinners, launch parties, and weddings.

The Viewing Balcony has stunning views of the weaving floor is including in the full day rate, providing the opportunity to extend your event and really wow your guests.

Please note the Weaving Floor is only available on selected weekends throughout the year.
