About The Pilgrims Rest

1 High Street, Battle
East Sussex, TN33 0AE

The Pilgrims Rest is an East Sussex wedding venue full of rustic charm - perfect for exclusive use weddings and receptions all year round.

Licensed for wedding and civil ceremonies,  The Pilgrims Rest is a wedding venue that gives 
you the flexibility to create your wedding day just how you want it.  Whether you choose to have a DIY wedding, a fully caterered wedding or anything in-between our wedding coordinator will be there on the day to hold your hand and ensure your wedding runs seamlessly.  

We have designed and furnished the building so that it needs little decoration but one that you can make your own. With no corkage charges and no hidden extras, The Pilgrims Rest is a wedding venue that is beautiful yet affordable; stunning yet relaxed.

The Pilgrims Rest is however more than just a beautiful old building. Having opened her doors to visitors and pilgrims to Sussex since C1420, this grand old lady has historic soul. She has hosted celebrations from medieval banquets to Georgian balls, Victorian luncheons to Edwardian tea dances. Over the centuries flagons of ale, goblets of wine and flutes of champagne have been consumed beneath her eaves to the sounds of ladies’ chattering and gentlemen's laughter flooding through her walls. 

All three reception rooms boast inglenook fireplaces.  With endless historic features from ancient beams to linenfold doors, witch’s marks to ward off evil spirits and a secret tunnel hidden under the Great Hall fireplace that runs beneath the Abbey walls, The Pilgrims Rest is a truly unique Sussex wedding venue.  When the sun is shining your guests can flood out into the beautiful tended rose and walled gardens. As the evenings draw in, stoke up the fires, light some candles then watch as she sparkles into life. 

The Pilgrims a part of her history.
