About Severndroog Castle

Severndroog castle is a gothic-style tower, built in 1784 by Lady James.  The castle was built as an expression of love to commemorate the achievements of Lady James’ late husband, Sir William James. With this romantic gesture as the foundation of the castle what better place to tie the knot. You don’t have to build a tower to celebrate your love but you can hire this romantic castle for your special day.

The castle is situated on the summit of Shooters Hill and is surrounded by an enchanted woodland which provides a perfect backdrop for ceremonies and photos. Severndroog is the perfect venue for intimate ceremonies in a unique setting.

    A smooth wedding day

    The contact from the venue staff was sometimes slow, but they did warn you of this as the office is manned part time only.
    On the day, they were very organised and ran everything like clockwork. Food was well presented and delicious (we had the x5 small plates). It was a bit more hassle some than you'd expect to organise vegetarian alternatives in 2019, but a solution was agreed.
    My only complaint was that the aisle was not wide enough for two people so my father could not actually walk me down the aisle, instead he had to walk behind me. Not great when they are avoiding a train and disappointing as this should have been checked by staff beforehand.

    The best venue for a small wedding

    Booking, organising and coordinating with the Severndroog staff and volunteers was smooth and professional and so was the running of things on the day. The venue speaks for itself, a Gothic and classy folly at the top of Shooter's Hill and is perfect for small ceremonies. Our guests all commented on the wonderful venue and the standard of catering and although our guests couldn't use the viewing platform due to the wind warning in place that day (typical!) I think the surroundings kept them entertained anyway.

    wedding of Anne and Marie 27th July 2018

    we hired Severndroog Castle as an exclusive hire for our wedding ceremony and reception. The whole experience was delightful and stress free from beginning to end. The staff, headed by Natalie and Melissa, were lovely, friendly and helpful. Terrace Catering headed by Chris gave superb food. Our guests loved the place, its a hidden gem, everyone was impressed by the venue and experience.
