About Hampton Court Castle

Hope under Dinmore
Herefordshire, HR6 0PN

Hampton Court Castle is a 15th Century Castle based in the beautiful Herefordshire countryside, with outstanding gardens.

Within the grounds there is a long drive leading up to the Castle, formal gardens with water features, a stunning Wisteria arch, maze, beautiful flower borders and an incredible forestry backdrop. The gardens are one of the main attractions here and are the perfect setting for those all-important wedding photographs.

Inside the Castle there are some spectacular reception rooms with charm, space, and historic character. In particular the Central Courtyard and Private Chapel, which are used for ceremonies, are unique and make for a very special place to say your vows. The rooms offers flexibility and scope for creativity, making no wedding here the same - you could have canapes in Coningsby hall, a traditional wedding breakfast in the Grand Ballroom, reception drinks in the Library with French windows opening onto the South Lawns, and there is also the option of a marquee reception for larger weddings.

With the castle available for weddings all year, we can cater for any style of wedding, whether that’s a summer garden party, or a magical winter wedding with a Christmassy feel and roaring open fires. Hampton Court Castle can offer you the setting for a personal and intimate ceremony and will effortlessly provide a special atmosphere in which to entertain your guests.

The venue is exclusive use, and there are 24 spacious guest bedrooms for family and friends to stay, with breakfast in the impressive Formal Dining Room. It’s the perfect venue and location to make your wedding day really memorable.

• Exclusive use of the Castle, with spacious and beautifully decorated rooms including the Grand Ballroom, the 600 year old Chapel, the Library and Coningsby Hall. • Stunning location with formal gardens and picturesque backdrop. • 24 luxurious and individually designed Castle bedrooms. • Licensed for ceremonies in 6 areas of the castle - including the breathtaking Central Courtyard and 600 year old Chapel. • Personal wedding coordinator to help you through the whole experience, from the viewing all the way up to the big day • Excellent local suppliers can be recommended including marquee hire, cake, flowers and photographers.

Magical wedding weekend
Venue Service

By Mel & Neil, on 28 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 02 Sep 2017

We held our wedding at Hampton Court Castle over two days, September 1st & 2nd 2017. When we first decided to look for a suitable Castle venue, we visited Hampton Court Castle purely on a whim. Upon driving through the entrance, we were immediately captivated by the majesty of the Castle and the breathtaking natural beauty of the surrounding grounds and gardens. Once we viewed the interior facilities and met the staff, we were absolutely convinced that there was no other choice for our big day! Family and friends from around the world joined us on Friday for a complete medieval banquet in the atmospheric Coningsby Hall, catered entirely by the Hampton Court staff, which was absolutely amazing! The wedding festivities on the following day were everything we could have wished for. From the humanist ceremony in the beautiful, historic chapel, to the sumptuous reception in the garden and ballroom, and the photographs around the incredible grounds, we enjoyed a unique, magical wedding weekend. We cannot thank the team enough for their tireless efforts to help bring together this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Dream come true

Hampton Court Castle was my dream wedding venue as a child and being able to make the dream a reality was an incredible experience. The impeccable grounds and rooms formed the perfect weekend and we were delighted to be blessed with incredible weather – the courtyard was the perfect spot for the ceremony but knowing we could use the chapel (also beautiful) if the weather did not hold gave us a huge level of comfort. The staff on the day were incredibly attentive and the whole weekend was a seamless experience.

Thank you for everything

We just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help and care on our wedding day and the weeks leading up to it. We considered ourselves incredibly lucky just to get such an amazing venue, but the care and attention your team gave us was far beyond our expectations. From putting us in contact with some amazing suppliers (florist, photographer, cake maker) to the chef being so accommodating with such an amazing menu and all the staff who helped make the day proceed without a glitch. It was the most amazing and magical day and we can't thank you enough for making it so special and surpassing all our expectations!!

Wish we could do it all again
Venue Service

The wedding ran smoothly throughout and we were over the moon with the entire day. What an incredible venue, from the beautiful bedrooms to the wonderful ballroom for dinner and dancing. We originally wanted to get married outside in the stunning courtyard, however it poured with rain. Not that it mattered one bit as we’re so happy we ended up getting married in the gorgeous chapel. We have some wonderful photos from that room which we’ll cherish forever and it was the perfect size for everyone to have a good view. The venue is perfect for any weather, it didn’t matter it was raining as we had our reception drinks in the library, just off the main ballroom which has a hidden door in a bookcase which the guests entered through and were all thrilled about. We were really relaxed the whole day as all of the brilliant staff organised everything for us and all of our guests have been talking about what a great time they had ever since. The main ballroom is eye catching and perfect for the meal, speeches and dancing. Hampton Court also put on an extremely tasty hog roast in the evening, which I really recommend, I am still thinking about how tasty it was now. We would also recommend having the dinner for all of the guests staying at the Castle the evening before your big day as that was brilliant getting both of the families together beforehand. The food was divine and the compliments were flowing once again. What a fantastic, memorable venue, and if you get good weather the gardens are gorgeous, reception drinks on the lawn would be beautiful! The one thing we are really sad about is that it’s all over and we can’t do it all again!

Felt like the king & queen of our very own castle
Venue Service

By Alan Lamb, on 28 Jan 2013

I wanted a castle with accommodation & a chapel as I didn't want our guests to spend the day traveling to and from different venues. With these requirements finding a venue was harder than I thought, however as soon as we walked into Hampton court castle we knew this was where we wanted to get married. We decided to book the castle and rooms for two nights as many of our guests had to travel from London, this removed the potential stressful journey on the day. During the planning we made many visits to the castle, Andrea and her family were always welcoming, they make you feel like you belong no matter how often you visit. Our planning meetings often felt like chatting with friends with Andrea's mum providing tea and cookies, a big thank you to Andrea for paying us such kind attention. The castle offers a more personal service; it never felt like a commercial production line. We were keen to use local suppliers however not being local made this difficult; again Andrea stepped in and made some great recommendations. The week leading up to our wedding was a whirlwind; it was such a relief when we arrived at the castle the afternoon before the big day. Having our family and friends around this night was a real added treat, which I sure would not be possible elsewhere, the food was great and the carol singers Andrea recommended were amazing. Everyone had a great experience, they all commented on the awesome venue, the friendliness and the incredible rooms, which are all distinctively different. The roll top baths went down particularly well with the female guests. We felt like the king and queen of our very own castle, a real fairy tale dream come true.

I cannot recommend you enough!

Stunning venue fit for a Princess
Venue Service

By David Harris, on 23 Jan 2013

We wanted somewhere that wasn't just a wedding reception production line but which was still professional. We found it. Hampton court is a stunning venue that amazed all our guests. The professionalism & helpfulness of Andrea & her staff made the day easy & enjoyable: they did all the difficult tasks leaving us to have fun.
