A Secret Medieval Castle in Kent, Combined with a Georgian Manor House.
The Castle Westenhanger has it all; a medieval castle dating back to the 16th century with a stately Georgian facade nestled in 14 acres of grounds.
To-be-weds planning intimate affairs or large parties will find a suitable setting at this versatile venue, which enjoys a rich history and was once King Henry VIII’s preferred party palace.
As featured in Your Kent Wedding and Weddings in Kent.
One Venue, Three Stunning Ceremony Options
The Castle Westenhanger is licensed for both indoor and outdoor civil ceremonies. You can exchange vows outside on the manicured lawns in a thatched, oak framed gazebo. Or say ‘I do’ inside the manor house, with its Georgian facade adding a stately ambience to proceedings. The wooden beams and inglenook fire go hand in hand with lavish, wintertime celebrations.
Wedding breakfasts for up to 120 guests are held inside the marquee. This airy, bright space features a voile-draped ceiling, chandelier lighting and full-length windows. Later, loved ones can dance the night away at a reception suitable for a maximum of 300 people. A dance floor and live entertainment equipment are provided by the events team.
The Castle Westenhanger enjoys one of the largest bridal suites in Kent which will be exclusively yours on the morning of your wedding day. Bright and light with large medieval windows to peek on your guests as they arrive, it’s perfect for capturing those all-important photographs.
