Residential Guests (Individuals)
The Oratory welcomes guests. It has two guest rooms: one single at the top of the house near the roof terrace, and a double in the library on the ground floor. Guests eat with the household and are welcome to use the chapel, the roof garden area and other parts of the house when not in use by others.

Day Visitors (Individual and Groups)
Because of its central London location, the house has become a popular venue for day meetings. There are two comfortable rooms available: the Library, when there is no resident guest, which can accommodate up to 8 people and a large Living Room which can accommodate up to 20 people. The house chapel, situated in the back courtyard, is a shrine to Our Lady of Walsingham. It seats 10 comfortably in the round, and can accommodate up to 20. Individuals are welcome to come for a quiet and /or study day. Hot and cold drinks with biscuits are provided. Normally individuals and groups bring their own packed lunch. Arrangements may sometimes be made for the catering of a simple vegetarian meal.
