About The Dukes Head Hotel

Tuesday Market Place, King's Lynn
Norfolk, PE30 1JS

The Duke’s Head Hotel has been hosting weddings for over 200 years. Located in King’s Lynn old town, the venue is perfect for a wedding of any size.

The historic venue has recently undergone a multi-million pound refurbishment to restore the building’s original character and elegance.

From small, intimate ceremonies to large, extravagant celebrations, we have three rooms for you to choose from for your civil ceremony. The Vancouver Suite seats up to 40 guests for an intimate ceremony. The suite is sleek and modern design with a few timeless pieces, such as the exquisite chandeliers. Our Nelson room is more traditional in style and can accommodate up to 60 of your closest friends and family. For a much larger affair, the Walpole Ballroom can hold 220 guest for your wedding celebrations.

At the Duke’s Head, we provide an outstanding quality of cuisine for your wedding breakfast. You can choose from our amazing range, or create your own menu. We aim to create a menu that reflects your individual tastes and we can even arrange a tasting session before the big day.

If you choose one of our fantastic wedding packages, our resident DJ will be available to you. With fantastic lighting and sound equipment, they are there throughout the night to keep the party going. Our DJ is happy to take requests and will make sure that all your favourite and important songs are played from the first dance to the last.

When the evening’s festivities draw to a close, you can spend your first night of married life in the luxury of one of our beautiful Bridal Suites. For your guests looking to spend the night, we offer special rates for a range of fantastic rooms.

Wedding Day saved by Dukes Head Hotel
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Young, on 29 May 2013

This Hotel helped my new wife and myself have our very Special Day here, after having been let down by Bradleys Restaurant in Kings Lynn going to the wall, and not even advising us of their imminent closure, or return of our deposit cheque. The Manager and all the Staff helped us enjoy our Wedding Reception here on the 28th February 2013, they went out of their way to make our day truly a memorable one, and with special thanks to Hannah Valentine who was our Hostess and Banquting Manageress seeing us through what had been a very upsetting time prior to our Wedding Day. We were offerred the Main Dining Room in the Hotel for our exclusive use, which we took up the Hotel's offer of, and all of our Guests had a beautifully cooked and prepared and presented 4 Course Meal, with all of our drink requirements taken care of. Everyone present are still talking about our day at the Dukes Head, and we have since recommended another Couple who are getting Married, to look at Booking here, for their Wedding. We understand that they have since Booked up to have their Wedding here also. We both would like to commend the Manager and all of the Staff for providing us with a very Professionally presented Event, and one which we shall be eternally grateful. Thank you.

Wedding and overnight stay review: What can we say, everything was perfect from the start of the wedding planning to the day after the wedding when we came home. Everything we asked for we got, the service and all staff were brilliant, very friendly and professional. The food was out of this world, delicious. The whole hotel is beautiful, the ballroom, the bar, restaurants and the room we stayed in was stunning. Everywhere was very clean and tidy to. It's in a great central location, but also nice and quiet. Great value for money. Would recommend it to anyone, whether you're getting married, having a couple of nights away or just a meal or drink. 5 stars for everything.
