Take a look at this video of the wine dinner in February, produced by a student of the Edge Hotel School Sunny Basra, for an idea of what the evening will entail. 


We attended the February 2014 sommelier dinner, and, wow, what an amazing evening. A great charismatic host in Lionel, a great professional service by the student team and super food and wine. The best thing about it was that we had the overnight package and didn’t have to drive home! We will be back for the next one! Thank you

By car:

Whether approaching Wivenhoe House from London and the South or Ipswich and the North via the A12, take the exit marked Colchester (A133). Follow the A133 towards Clacton, ignore the entrance to the Knowledge Gateway, continue along the A133 then take the B1028 for Wivenhoe before turning right into Boundary Road, then right again into Park Road. The entrance for Wivenhoe House is shared with the University of Essex but Park Road leads you through Wivenhoe Park and you will be able to see the glorious house from the road.

For Sat Nav please use CO7 9HT and then follow signage to Wivenhoe House. Please note, some Sat Navs may direct you to the wrong side of Wivenhoe Park so please check our PDF Map
