Built for parties in the 1920's the house an illustrious history with a tradition of entertaining guests that provides an unforgettable experience for you and your guests. This tucked away, hidden gem, has a laid back, warm, homely, utterly unstuffy feel but yet is elegant, stylish, glamorous and lavishly decorated reflecting the decadent, indulgent era when it was built.

ExcellentFrom the moment we met with Dianne the Wedding Co-ordinator we knew we would book Port Lympne as our wedding venue. We were made to feel comfortable, relaxed and absolutely every details of our day was covered. The attention to detail was fantastic and we had an amazing day. Our wedding day went according to plan and we were surrounded by a group of professionals that made us feel like the most important people on the face of the earth. I really can’t recommend Port Lympne enough. The food was amazing, the atmosphere was fantastic and all of our guests commented on the venue and how fantastic everything was. This really is a greta place to have your wedding. We have no regr ets whatsoever. Carolyn Atkins

Fantastic venueWe had a fantastic wedding day and we were the first couple to get married outside as they had only just go their licence, the staff could not have been more helpful if they had tried. We would recommend Port Lympne as a wedding venue to anyone. We set out to have a totally different day which we did, our day was arranged around us and what we wanted.
