About Farnham Castle

Farnham Castle is an historic wedding venue situated just an hour from London, on the border of Surrey and Hampshire. The original castle was founded by the Bishop of Winchester and dates back to the twelfth century. Today, the magnificent building is nestled amidst beautiful grounds, gardens and scenic woodlands. Celebrate your ceremony and wedding reception at our elegant wedding venue, offering stunning rooms to entertain, fine dining, a specialist in-house planning team and a suitably sophisticated backdrop, perfect for un-rivalled photo opportunities.

Wedding Ceremony and Reception Rooms at Farnham Castle

There are several stunning locations for indoor and outdoor wedding ceremonies at Farnham Castle. You can exchange vows in one of two historic chapels, The Norman Chapel or The Bishop’s Chapel, each defined by antiquated features such as stone arches and wooden accents. Civil ceremonies are held in Lantern Hall, a similarly picturesque room that conjures a sense of traditional tranquility. Evening receptions are held in the magnificent Great Hall, where you can celebrate with loved ones and enjoy an evening of formal dining and entertainment. This remarkable room is characterised by stunning stained glass windows, a grand fireplace, and gilt-framed portraits. From intimate gatherings and micro weddings to large affairs for 180 day and 300 evening guests, our experienced team are on hand to curate your dream day.

    A Wonderful Wedding Weekend

    We would like to sincerely thank you and the entire staff for the wonderful wedding weekend we held at Farnham Castle on 7th March, 2020.
    The entire event was extremely well organised, the food was wonderful and of course the Castle provided a rich and historical setting for the celebrations.
    We are still looking back with excitement and fond memories at the many photos and videos share from the day, and our international guests talk about the fantastic time enjoyed by friends and family. Thank you once again.

    The BEST food!

    Thank you all so much for our amazing wedding back in February. Heather - you were so calm on the day and kept us to time. Steve - you ensured that it ran smoothly and we didn’t need to worry about anything. Chefs - ‘the BEST food at a wedding’ are many compliments we have received and we loved it. Thank you!

    A magical day at Farnham Castle

    Words simply cannot describe how much we appreciate everything you did to make our wedding day so special on the 21st December. It was just magical and thank you all so much for embracing our Christmas theme so whole-heartedly. The fact that you took care of everything so effortlessly on the day meant that we could really and truly relax and enjoy every moment. The Castle looked beautiful, the food was spectacular and the guest all commented on how brilliantly run everything was – thank you! And the ’13 days of Christmas’ – what can we say – so brilliant and all credit to you! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
