Highcliffe Castle is the premier wedding venue on the South Coast. As the most important surviving house of the Romantic and Picturesque style of architecture the Grade 1 listed castle is a truly magical wedding venue. You will be hard pressed to find a more stunning setting for you and your guests or a more majestic backdrop for your wedding photos.
The natural beauty of the magnificent Wintergarden will be a perfect setting for your wedding vows. You and your guests can then enjoy celebratory drinks on the landscaped lawns or perhaps a short walk down the cliff top path for pictures on the beach.
For your reception you can choose between the Great Hall or the State Dining Room. The exposed brickwork and stunning views in the State Dining Room provides a romantic and intimate setting for up to 80 guests. The Great Hall, as it’s name suggests, can hold over a hundred people. You and your guests can marvel at 16th Century Jesse stained-glass window and sit just where Mr Selfridge once sat!
Your choice of DJ or band can keep everyone dancing in The Drawing Room while those less willing to show off their dance moves can remain at their tables or enjoy exploring the Castle grounds.
You will have at your service, 7 days a week, a highly experienced Events Team and a professional Weddings Team to help support you to create a truly unforgettable experience.

The Most Perfect Day
“There are simply no words to describe how grateful we are to you and all the staff involved in our daughters wedding on Saturday …. the most perfect day imaginable”Sent on 18/04/2018
Stunning venue and a perfect day!
Where to start! As soon as we visited Highcliffe and saw the stunning ceremony room with its grand piano (which one of our good friends played our music on), we knew this was the place for our wedding and reception. The wedding ran so smoothly thanks to the great staff surrounding us on the day! They were extremely helpful leading up to and on the day. They answered all our questions with swift answers. They even helped with ideas for where to place items in the eve and were always up for trying our ideas out. Every single guest told us that it was such a great venue for a wedding because of the stunning ceremony room and the layout of rooms in the eve reception was perfect for what we had planned. We had the Great Hall for our meal with its stunning stained glass window. It was worth every penny we spent! Also, we selected Merlin’s for our meal and everyone raved about the food. Thanks to everyone at Highcliffe for our perfect day! Tim and Kate ArcherSent on 16/10/2013
