The Great Thatched Barn at Falmer Court is a historic wedding venue situated just outside of Brighton, England in East Sussex. The venue is nestled within a large, idyllic estate where you will enjoy breathtaking views of the rolling countryside. Combined with the centuries-old barn and picturesque gardens, this property is the perfect place to host your momentous occasion.

Facilities and Capacity

The Great Thatched Barn at Falmer Court is drenched in romance and retro charm. The barn features cathedral ceilings, timber cross beams, and a thatch roof that will transport you back in time. It can seat as many as 130 guests on the venue's stylish, lime-washed Chiavari chairs. You can host your ceremony inside the barn, or, if you prefer a religious ceremony, in the village Anglican church. Just a stone's throw away, St Laurence, and the local vicar, will welcome you to this sanctuary to tie the knot. You can also exchange your vows outside, surrounded by the spectacular greenery of the South Downs. Wedding breakfasts can be held on the grounds under a stretch tent, which will provide shelter during hot summer days and cool autumn nights.

Services Offered

Along with Chiavari chairs, The Great Thatched Barn at Falmer Court will supply patio furniture for your celebration. For catering, they work exclusively with Circa Events, a company that provides gourmet dishes and exquisite planning services. These caterers maximise sustainability and strive to make a positive impact on the planet. The bar is run by the in-house team and serves British brands whenever possible in order to support local businesses and reduce their carbon footprint.

Superb every step of the way.

It was a joy to work with the team at Falmer Court. The answer was always yes we can make that work and with efficient and friendly charm. On our special day the heavens opened and it rained all day long and the team worked brilliantly and quickly together to ensure as the days plans had to change due to the weather outside there was a seamless re planning and our wedding was perfect.

Gorgeous barn with great staff

Gorgeous location and has great staff who made sure our dreams came true. Everyone made us feel so comfortable and in very safe hands - on what could be a little bit of a stressful time! The barn is great if you would like to have everything in one location, we did the ceremony at one end which then turned into a dance floor after the wedding reception. Gorgeous piccie spots too - and 2 pigs (Tommy and Violet) that were stars of the show for the kids! Really recommend the Great Thatch Barn and Circa.
