Penshurst Place is a historic countryside manor house set within an array of formal gardens in the beautiful Weald of Kent countryside, featuring a collection of stunning interior and exterior ceremony and reception rooms.

This astonishing venue sits in the Weald of Kent Countryside in Tonbridge, as part of the remarkable Penshurst Place Estate.

Comprising a medieval house and 11 acres of beautiful, Elizabethan gardens, including a large Renaissance-style Italian Garden, a 100-metre-long Peony Border, and lush grasses swaying amongst orchards & Kentish cobnut trees, this is a wedding venue like no other.

On your arrival, you'll approach via the sweeping driveway through the parkland to the north side of the house, where the grand entrance of the King’s Tower greets you and your guests.

Choose from a collection of ceremony and reception spaces, including the medieval Baron's Hall with its 60-foot-high chestnut beamed ceiling or the romantic Sunderland Room featuring antique wooden panelling and a crackling fireplace. For those looking for something outdoors, the pretty, secluded Inner Courtyard or the wisteria and climbing rose-covered pergola in the Nut Garden, may be the perfect place for you to say "I do".

With Summer, Winter, weekday, and weekend rates available, alongside a huge choice of rooms with a range of capacities, weddings at Penshurst Place and Gardens are flexible to your requirements. The experienced team of wedding coordinators and in-house chefs will work with you and your suppliers to curate your perfect day, from advice on seasonal flowers to match those in the gardens, to helping you plan your delicious wedding breakfast and everything in between. Penshurst Place has been hosting celebrations for centuries in the historic house and gardens that were just made for such occasions.
