Hold your wedding surrounded by thousands of years’ worth of stunning history.
Built when Colchester became the first Roman Capital of Britain, Colchester Castle is the biggest surviving Norman Keep in Europe. Ordered by William the Conqueror around 1076, it is built on the foundations of the earlier Roman Temple of Claudius, dating back to AD 54-50. It is home to over 2000 years’ worth of History, from Royalty to besieges, imprisonments, and executions.
The Chapel is by far the most popular place that our couples choose to exchange their vows. The high vaulted white ceilings give the space a stunning romantic and peaceful charm, and the tinted natural daylight which fills the room through the stained windows, adding to the ethereal atmosphere of the room.
Named after Charles Gray himself, the Charles Gray Room is the most popular private space within Colchester Castle to hold a wedding breakfast. It holds up to 80 seated guests, making it an appealing and intimate space for you to spend time with your family and friends.

“We were the first couple to get married in the summer house in Colchester. The day was absolutely amazing from start to finish, the staff were extremely helpful and lovely. I would recommend anyone who is thinking of having an outdoor wedding to consider it. Beautiful location. Also can have all photos in the castles grounds.”Sent on 25/07/2018

I wasnt disappointed
“My husband to be selected the venue and I wasn't disappointed. Staff were fantastic and answered my endless questions and were prompt to reply to emails. This made the whole wedding organisation process much less stressful than I had imagined .On the day everything was perfect, the flowers and the table settings, the food was delicious and our overseas guests were very impressed with the wine. All the feedback from the guests was positive from the actual venue and how wonderful it was to be able to roam around the castle to the catering staff who were excellent and very professional. A big thank you for making the day so wonderful and stress free.”Sent on 25/07/2018
