About Penshurst Place & Gardens

Penshurst, Tonbridge
Kent, TN11 8DG

Located within the natural beauty of Kent, Penshurst Place and Gardens is a unique stately home, with understated intimacy.

Standing for nearly 700 years, Penshurst Place has three outstanding indoor suites, all licensed for the perfect civil ceremony. For a smaller, more intimate ceremony the Buttery is ideal and can accommodate up to 40 of your closest friends and family.


The Sunderland Room has the capacity for up to 120 guests and boasts stunning original features and a fabulous fireplace. The room captures the atmosphere of a church with the benefit of more flexibility.


The largest banqueting hall on offer is the elegant Baron’s Hall. Accommodating up to 200 guests, the historic room sits in the heart of Penshurst Place and exudes grandeur and class.


Alternatively, you can have your ceremony outside in our beautiful Inner Courtyard. The secluded area seats up to 120 guests and provides the perfect setting for the ceremony.

We work with our fantastic partner caterers, Kudos, who have a focus on providing exceptional food with perfectly-matched wines, and where possible, will aim to source their menu from within 60 miles of the Penshurst Place estate.


For your photographs, the 11 acres of formal gardens at Penshurst Place are unmatched. Featuring 11 distinct garden ‘rooms’ you’ll be able to capture a variety of truly unique photographs with your spouse and loved ones.

Perfect day!
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs B, on 09 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 29 Sep 2018

We had the most wonderful day. The venue, the staff, the food was all perfect! From start to finish everything as perfect and we couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else. Our guests couldn't believe how stunning the venue was - they had ever seen anything like it. Many said it was the best wedding they had ever been to!

Both the staff at Penshurst and Kudos cannot be complimented enough. Always professional, friendly, quick to respond and beyond helpful. I was always made to feel as if I was the only bride they had to worry about! Our reception was above and beyond perfect and we couldn’t have asked for anything more from anyone. Our day was amazing and Penshurst Place will always hold a special place in our hearts

A day to remember
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs S, on 20 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 25 May 2018

Our wedding day was so wonderful; the support provided in the run up to the day, the wonderful food and wine tasting, as well as the attention to detail on the big day. We both felt that the team really understood our ‘brief’ and vision and very much made that come alive. It really was a day to remember

We had a truly magical, perfect day, made better by the weather. These things don’t just happen and the staff team are all to be congratulated on the professional, organised, courteous way the whole day was managed. All of our family and friends were blown away by the setting and were complimentary of the staff and the way the day went so smoothly. We would not have changed a thing!

We had the best day; so happy and full of joy, and because everything happened seamlessly it was also stress free, which was absolutely the goal. It was such a pleasure to get married at Penshurst, and our guests could not believe how beautiful it was and the history of the building. The gardens also looked amazing. Walking around having our photos done there was spectacular!
