Historic Wedding Venues
Get your inner Princess out..!
If you fancy a fairytale wedding - literally - then one of our amazing castles might be able to fulfil your dream.
Dating back to the 13th century, Hever Castle in Kent was once the childhood home of Anne Boleyn, second wife of Henry VIII and formed the unlikely backdrop to a sequence of tumultuous events that changed the course of Britain’s history, monarchy and religion.
Its splendid panelled rooms contain fine furniture, tapestries, antiques and an important collection of Tudor portraits, demonstrating its rich and varied history. A section of the Castle is dedicated to its more recent history, containing pictures and memorabilia relating to the Edwardian period.
Despite its splendour, Hever Castle is what every child (or bride!) wants a castle to be: crenellated, moated, haunted, with lots of armour and gruesome torture devices.... if you're into that kind of thing! Goth wedding anyone? If you're going for Hever (and your budget can stretch) then in the summer months you'll have exclusive use of the Astor wing including 21 luxurious bedroom suites, outdoor heated swimming pool, tennis court and croquet lawn. We could only dream of that - and if you're in that situation then a great alternative is
Horsley Tower in Surrey. It is simply the perfect choice for a whole host of celebrations. Dating back to 1820, Horsley Towers is the ancestral home of the Lovelace family and home to a long line of distinguished thinkers. At Horsley Towers, you can enjoy a choice of settings. Delight in a candlelit feast in the atmospheric Great Hall to a lavish reception in the Sopwith Restaurant. Horsley Towers also has an amazing moat to big up the Princess in the Tower feeling - we're thinking Rapunzel with this one...! This also offers the opportunity for your guests to stay with 28 en-suite bedrooms so they can share in your fantasy wedding.
