About Allington Castle

Allington Castle is a wedding venue located about three miles northwest of Maidstone in Kent, England. Situated along the banks of the River Medway near Allington Lock, this stunning castle is surrounded by 42 acres of lush greenery and woodlands. The castle’s origins date back to the 12th century. A section of wall and the kitchen fireplace, built in 1174, are extant from the period. The castle was purchased by the Wyatt family in 1491 and converted into a manor house. The poet Sir Thomas Wyatt dined with Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn in the Castle’s Great Hall sometime around 1530. Today, the castle is a private residence where couples and their guests can enjoy tranquillity and splendour in equal measure.

Facilities and Capacity

Allington Castle is surrounded by a picturesque moat and set amidst beautifully manicured lawns dotted with fine fountains. The Great Hall can accommodate up to 100 guests for a wedding ceremony. Evening receptions are hosted in the beautiful 17th-century barn, which can hold up to 170 guests. Buffet and formal sit-down meal options are available. There is also a lovely outdoor drinks area, and during the warm summer months, the lawn is decorated with delightful festoon lights.

Services Offered

Allington Castle is available for weekday and weekend hire. The castle can be rented for a full day or as little as three hours. All four wedding packages include the use of the Great Hall for your ceremony and access to the Italian gardens for photographs. The full-day package also includes an evening reception, cash bar, professional DJ, rustic dance floor, and state-of-the-art photo booth. Extras, including a candy cart, cake cart, outdoor furniture, and lanterns, are also available for rental. A bespoke package can also be designed to help bring your unique vision to life. Whatever your needs, Kerrie, Craig, and the rest of the team want to ensure that your time at Allington Castle is filled with moments you’ll remember and cherish for the rest of your life.

    The Perfect Wedding Venue

    Kerrie, Colin and the rest of the team at Allington castle truly made our day!!

    The grounds and castle are beautiful and it was the perfect setting for our wedding. We were blessed with amazing weather and despite having to reduce numbers due to restrictions we couldn't have hoped for a better day.

    This is a real hidden gem. All of our guests were blown away with the setting, experience and service from the staff.

    Having Bryan Edery Music playing piano during and after the ceremony in the courtyard with drinks and canapes provided by Invicta Food Design was the icing on the cake!

    Couldn't recommend more highly!

    A Magical day in this beautiful Castle

    Well what can we say, Kerrie was absolutely amazing helping us organize our magical day. A very professional events organizer. Right from when we first contacted her to ask if there was any dates available to have our wedding at the privately owned Allington castle nothing was too much trouble . Giving us names of amazing caterers (Relish) ,florist, (Flowers & Sparkle) & the evening entertainment (1 Entertainment) Kerrie made us feel at easy ,helped sort the music for the service ,organize the Toast Master (Who was a true professional) There was not one thing she couldn't help us with & nothing was too much trouble. We were extremely grateful .It was a fairy tale wedding .Thank you to all the staff for making our day extra special .
    A truly beautiful setting
