About Shiplake College

Oxfordshire, RG9 4BW

Shiplake College is a wedding venue in Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire. Located in a beautiful setting on the banks of the Thames, guests enjoy a wonderful view of the river and surrounding countryside.

Shiplake College occupies a 45 acre site sitting above the River Thames just 2½ miles from Henley. The buildings are centred on Shiplake Court, built in 1889 for the Harrison family. Having begun life as a fine Victorian family home, Shiplake Court now houses the Great Hall, Morning Room, kitchens, the Medical Wing and Skipwith House.

The Church of St Peter and St Paul is just 100 yards from the Great Hall. Alternatively, if you are interested in holding a civil ceremony at Shiplake, there are two options available. The Great Hall can accommodate up to 200 guests for the ceremony whilst the Old Library hosts up to 60. 

Shiplake College offers a unique venue for Wedding Receptions. The Great Hall, with Minstrels' Gallery, can seat up to 110 guests for formal receptions. Attached to the Great Hall is the Old Library, which can be used for drinks on arrival, after the ceremony, or for dancing later in the evening. The Old Library also offers a fantastic option for more intimate receptions of up to 60 guests.

The Location and Events Manager at Thomas Franks will be happy to advise you on ensuring that your wedding reception is perfect, from devising a sumptuous menu to suggesting matching wines, and from room layout to finishing touches.

The experienced wedding team will take care of every detail during the preparation process and of course on the special day itself. This will allow you to relax and enjoy every moment.
