Many congratulations on your engagement and thank you for considering Basing House for your wedding.
Steeped in history, Basing House is an unforgettable wedding venue set in the heart of the picturesque village of Old Basing in North Hampshire. The high-ceilinged Great Barn, delightful river walk and pristine walled garden create stunning backdrops making the site the perfect place for couples looking for a peaceful and beautiful wedding.
Dating back as far as 1000s, and once the playground and honeymoon destination of the Tudor monarchy, this estate has also weathered extensive hardship. Once caught in the middle of the English Civil War, Basing House’s Great Barn now proudly shows its battle scars. The House itself now exists only as a collection of romantic ruins and a beautiful walled garden.
Choose between hosting your wedding in the Great Barn, or in a marquee in the grounds of this once great house. Both spaces within the Basing House estate are charming spots for a celebration. In the barn you’ll dine under its famous oak beams and the huge space offers much in the way of customisation and space for up to 250 guests for a seated reception. In the gardens you’ll find yourself where royalty once stood, with the space lending itself well to marquees and outdoor parties.
If you’re looking for an unusual, tranquil and undeniably interesting place to host your wedding, Basing House may just be your dream venue, offering you the chance to create a truly bespoke and memorable special day. Saying 'I Do' surrounded by so much natural beauty and history can only serve to make the day even more special. For more information on this historic venue, please contact the team.
