Choosing a Historic Wedding Venue

The UK is bursting with wedding venues of extraordinary historic significance. If you’ve ever considered marrying in a castle, royal palace or stately home, you’re going to love this list of the best historic wedding venues.

You’ll be following in the footsteps of some of the most celebrated names in history as you walk down the aisle at a venue that has stood for hundreds of years.

From Henry VIII’s home of Hampton Court Palace to Knebworth House, the stage for some of the biggest moments in modern music history, there are hundreds of different historic wedding venues to choose from. Each venue has its own character and atmosphere, ensuring you’ll have a day full of personality and a backdrop oozing with charm.

Just because a venue is historic doesn’t mean that it only hosts very traditional, formal weddings. On our list you’ll find lots of converted barns, former factories, chic cottages and more that are perfect for modern, contemporary weddings. Even in impressive settings such as museums and art galleries, you can host a relaxed, informal day for intimate parties or large guest lists.

How to Find Your Perfect Historic Wedding Venue

Think about what is important to you. Is it a magnificent staircase to make your entrance down? Is it a stunning façade that you can get amazing photography in front of? Is it being in a venue that has links to a fascinating historical character? Is it an impressive banquet hall to impress your guests?

Many couples choose a historic venue based on their wedding theme, so decide this early: is it an English country garden affair, a luxury Black Tie soiree, a modern minimalist wedding or an elegant all-white theme?

Many historic wedding venues come with a price tag that reflects their past so you’ll need to weigh up all these things in your budget. A larger space will be more expensive to style with centrepieces, flowers and glasswear, but equally, an impressive historic venue might not need much decoration.

Frequently asked questions regarding Historic Weddings

What type of historic venues do weddings?

In the UK there is a wide range of historic buildings and venues that do weddings. Whether you want a modernist wedding, a classic ambience or a bohemiam vibe, you'll find a venue that meets your budget and style. On Hitched, you can choose from cosy 300-year old manors, magestic 12th century castles, renovated stately homes, and sophisticated banquet halls set in the countryside.

Do historic venues have certain limitations for weddings?

Some older historic buildings may have specific limitations, such as access to the different spaces. These tend to be more limiting for the wedding suppliers, such as the caterers or DJs so it's always a good idea to visit your chosen venue with potential wedding suppliers so that they may plan accordingly.

What facilities do historic venues tend to offer?

While every historic venue is unique, many offer disabled facilities, parking, changing rooms, marquees, facilities for a live band or DJ, an entertainment license, a dance floor, and some allow fireworks or even fire ceremonies.
