Originally a coaching inn to the visiting aristocracy, The Spread Eagle Hotel in the historic villiage of Midhurst dates back to 1430. Walking around the hotel is like a journey through time, with its 15th century lounge warmed by huge fireplaces, stained glass windows, oak beams and Tudor bread ovens. All 39 bedrooms are individually designed and The Queen's Suite is said to have accommodated Elizabeth I.
A sense of history and a sense of occasion go hand-in-hand when you choose to have your wedding at the Spread Eagle and our dedicated team is on hand to ensure your day is perfect. We have a choice of three enchanting venues for your civil ceremony: the intimate King Edward VII Room with its beamed walls and ceiling is in the oldest part of the hotel and accommodates up to 30 guests; the Polo Room with its high vaulted ceiling for up to 80 people; and the magnificent Jacobean Hall with its natural stone walls, heraldic banners and minstrel's galley for up to 120.
The Jacobean Room, which has its own bar and cloakrooms, makes a stunning venue for a Wedding Breakfast for up to 90 guests and comes complete with the secluded Jacobean Garden that can be candlelit on summer evenings for a most romantic celebration. A marquee can be sited on the lawn of the Jacobean Hall catering for up to 135 guests.
