Steeped in history, West Horsley Place is a Grade I listed medieval manor house set in the heart of the Surrey countryside. Left almost untouched for a century, like Sleeping Beauty, West Horsley Place is waking from its slumber and exudes a magical and timeless atmosphere. Welcome to the enchanting world of West Horsley Place; An estate of great romantic beauty with a fascinating and significant history, this is a truly unique wedding venue.
Just 30 miles from London, yet nestled away in a complete world of its own, West Horsley Place is the ideal setting for the quintessential English country wedding. Though the site has been occupied since Saxon times, the current house dates from 1425 and the charming mellow red brick facade, that gives the house it welcoming embrace, added in the seventeenth cenury. The estate is being lovingly restored and opened to the public for the first time in its 1000 year history. Having your special day here will continue our centuries-long story, breathe life back into this precious jewel and help to secure its future.
Currently on Historic England’s At Risk Register, by 2020, West Horsley Place will offer a fantastic selection of restored formal reception rooms for you to choose from. Each exuding their own unique charm, from the classical grandeur of the Stone Hall to the intimate warmth of the Library:
