Took our breath away it was so beautiful
Everything,just everything was amazing.Sent on 14/01/2020
The Hall was decorated beautifully for Christmas. The trees were just gorgeous.
The staff; the waiters & waitresses at the wedding breakfast, the food, the hall, the bedrooms – The honeymoon suite was also amazing also! Absolutely beautiful in every way.
We’ve been recommending it to anyone who will listen!

The opulence and grandeur is mind blowing
Wow, where do I even start. From the first minute my husband and I walked through the doors to Knowsley Hall, we knew this would be the home of our wedding venue. It’s opulence and grandeur is mind blowing and the customer service from the moment we booked the venue with Vanessa to email conversations with Lesley and Matt and then to the co-ordination on the day by Matt and Jason was exceptional. Myself, James and our guests were blown away by the food. So many of our guests commented on the fact that the food was the best they had ever tasted at a wedding. Paul and his team clearly take great pride in the food they present and we can’t thank them enough for it. It was superb. A special thanks has to go to Matt, Jason and the FOH team at Knowsley. You guys were incredible. James and I didn’t have to think about anything on the day. All of our thoughts and worries were taken care of and you made sure the day ran like clock work. You are all an absolute credit Knowsley and to Lord and Lady Derby.Sent on 29/11/2019

You will have the wedding day of your dreams
Our wedding at Knowsley Hall was the most amazing experience. The venue is spectacular and the staff at every stage, from planning to the day itself, are exceptional. All the guests commented on how attentive they were, they go that extra mile to ensure that the day is perfect in every way and that every bride is made to feel special. Nothing is too much trouble and they anticipate every need before you can even express it. The food was out of this world, we had several guests with special dietary requirements and Chef went out of his way to ensure that not only were their needs were met but they also had an amazing meal without feeling in any way that they were a bother. This was very much appreciated by the guests and by us as hosts. If you want a stunning venue where your guests will be completely wowed, come and view Knowsley Hall. I am sure that like us you will fall in love with it, and will have the wedding day of your dreams.Sent on 31/01/2020
