Palais Des Vaches Gallery & Venue

Lower Exbury Farm, Exbury


The Palais des Vaches is a beautifully renovated art gallery and event venue overlooking the Beaulieu River and The Solent, offering breathtaking views.

Just a short distance from the world-famous Exbury Gardens, this carefully designed event venue has three flexible, interconnecting interior spaces which surround a large open courtyard and a smaller outdoor seating area with a North facing lawn. In Summer there is a wild flower meadow overlooking the river.

The gallery hosts exceptional local and award winning national artists with exhibitions on show throughout the year, and is the perfect venue to celebrate any special occasion, from birthday parties or weddings to pop-up restaurants, educational talks and corporate away-days.

The Palais offers a range of works for all pockets and welcomes both the discerning collector as well as first time buyers.

What used to be the 1920’s ‘Cow Palace’ as called by the farm workers from a previous age has now been transformed into the Palais des Vaches. From ramshackle old farm buildings, a phoenix has arisen to become a wondrous venue that offers exclusivity, privacy and a stress-free escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.


A perfect venue to celebrate any special occasion, from birthday parties or weddings to pop-up restaurants, educational talks and corporate away days.

Hosting exceptional local and award winning national artists with exhibitions on show throughout the year. Also available to present the work of individual artists or groups.

The private courtyard is large with space for seating and dining options and for a presentation/ entertainment, surrounded by our three interior spaces.

Your event can have the flexibility to enjoy both a spacious interior and open air aspect.
