Nestled within 163 acres of exquisite pastoral beauty, Addington Palace is a historic wedding venue in the depths of Croydon, Surrey. This beautiful location is just twelve miles from central London and holds strong ties to royal history, including Henry VIII's courtship of Anne Boleyn. Today, the illustrious Georgian mansion offers to-be-weds exclusive use of ten versatile spaces and a sprawling estate to host their dream stately affair. From the landscaped gardens to the grand staircase, this idyllic setting is a splendid backdrop for the tender beginnings of a once-in-a-lifetime happily ever after.

Addington Palace specializes in abundance and tangible opulence. Every hire includes exclusive access to the entirety of this breathtaking estate with absolute flexibility for outside vendors.

Marque is good for any type of event!
The palace itself was a beautiful location and made all the more special by them being so flexible with our decorations, including Christmas trees dotted all around.
All our guests loved the day and loved the palace, it was well worth the cost - after all, you only do it once.
I would definitely recommend Addington Palace as a wedding venue and cannot speak more highly of the staff that work there.

My Perfect Day 24th May 2015
I got so many photos taken on the day both inside the venue and outside near the fountain.
I picked the Gold menu and the food was pretty pleasant. Very prompt and polite service from the waiting staff on the day.
Craig and his team were fantastic not just on the day but in the months leading up to the wedding. Their experience helped us plan for the wedding and they came up with many points we had not even considered. The staff were so professional and helpful on the day and our suppliers tell us they had an easy time making sure decorations and placements were all exactly as we wanted.
The venue is stunning and all our guests fell in love with it. Because it is grand inside with the furniture, chandeliers, silk gold wallpaper etc, you only really need to decorate the main hall and the ceremony room and even then you only really need flowers.
The food was fantastic and huge portions to everyone's delight. Seriously, hats off to the caterers, really delicious food.
There are certain rules around health and safety which means you cannot have everything you want (like real lit candles, confetti indoors) but this is expected in a venue like this so please discuss with the team there early on what you can and cannot have to ensure you are not disappointed..
A note of caution, it is not the cheapest venue to have a wedding, however, having, looked at other similar venues where you get full exclusive use, it is very comparable cost-wise. The key thing for us was exclusive use of the whole building which Addington Palace is ideal for.
Thank you all for helping make our wedding day so special.
Bev and I want to say a big thank you to you and all the staff that made our wedding day a huge success
Thanks for your email and for all you did to make our day so special. It was amazing and we just smiled the whole way through.
We had a great honeymoon, very relaxing, despite some mixed weather. It’s now back to the real world…..although in a way it’s nice to be able to move on from wedding planning!
The palace is a fabulous backdrop, great venue.
Thanks again to you and your team
With exclusive use of so many reception rooms and outdoor space its a unique venue with a first class team that thankfully guides you through the whole process.
I can’t recommend them highly enough.

Billy and I would like to thank you so much for all you help to make our wedding day (25.08.12) the most amazing and special day.
The day was so relaxed and we had so much fun, we have had lots of great feed back from all our guests on how lovely everything was from start to finish, and everyone has mentioned how lovely, friendly and professional all the staff were on the day, and we couldn’t agree more, they really were and worked so hard all day.
Love Rachael & Billy x
