Wedding Venues Offering Virtual Tours
Hamswell House

The last year has been an incredibly stressful - and at points heartbreaking - time for couples in the midst of wedding planning thanks to the impact of Coronavirus on weddings. With all in-person meetings and consultations banned for months at a time, many have struggled to move forward with their plans, resulting in hold-ups and frustration for couples and wedding businesses alike.

Since the lockdown began in March 2020, all wedding venues in the UK have had to close their doors multiple times, meaning showrounds and open days have been extremely limited. 

The good news is that many venues have opened their doors virtually, allowing couples to start planning right now. To help you out, we've listed all the wedding venues currently offering virtual tours, plus we've also written some top tips on how to get the best from your virtual venue viewing at the bottom of this article – make sure you give them a read before your appointment! 

So, without further ado, here are the UK wedding venues that are open for virtual tours, ordered by region. From stately homes to hotels and barns, all kinds of venues have opened their (virtual) doors – happy searching!

How to Prepare for Your Virtual Wedding Venue Viewing

  • Download the meeting platform and check that it works on your device in advance. There are a variety of different platforms that venues could be using including Zoom, Microsoft Teams and FaceTime, so make sure you familiarise yourself with the one the venue you’re viewing is using.
  • Sit in the area of the house with the strongest internet connection. The attic room may be peaceful but if your router is two floors down, you may end up with awkward pauses and freezes during your viewing. Sit closer to your router for better stability.
  • Check if others can join your viewing. Perhaps you’d like your mum, sister or maid of honour to view the venue with you? Ask the venue team if it’s possible and how they can join the call and then make sure everyone has any passcodes needed to enter and they know exactly when the viewing will kick off.
  • Write down questions in advance. If you have specific questions you’d like to ask the venue, make sure you make a note of them and have them to hand during the viewing. It’s easy to get swept up in the tour and forget to ask about practical details!
  • Ask about access. If there are wheelchair users or others with specific needs on your guest list, check that the venue will be accessible for them as you take the tour.
  • Ask to focus on the areas that are most important to you. If you’d like to get married outside, for example, ask the coordinator to spend more time showing you their outdoor ceremony setting – it might be worth checking the forecast in advance so you can book in on a sunny day showing it in its best light!
  • Ask about recommended suppliers. If the venue works with a set group of suppliers or simply has a list of recommended suppliers, it’s worth finding out a bit more about them and what they do during the tour.
  • Ask if you can see photographs of the venue set up for a wedding. A virtual tour should give you a good idea of the space and the feel of the venue, but photos of previous weddings will give you lots of ideas when it comes to thinking of how to dress the space and make it your own.
