Winchester House is a spacious private members club on the banks of the Thames, a stone’s throw from Putney Bridge. With stunning river views, it’s a real hidden gem, with charm and character in abundance.
A perfect venue for weddings all year round, Winchester House is a spacious and historic building in an enchanting riverside setting.
Summer weddings can make use of the half-acre private gardens, which are perfect for team building events, drinks receptions, BBQs and street food. The private lawns are on the banks of the Thames, giving plentiful photo opportunities.
For winter weddings guests can enjoy the cosy interior of the historic house, with its spacious rooms and understated and neutral interior design. Following a full refurbishment, the flexible spaces will allow you to make the venue your own, complementing the look of each room with your own designs, décor and colour scheme.
Winchester House can accommodate both wedding receptions and civil ceremonies. There are also several churches within walking distance, and accommodation within a short walk.
The historic venue is part of events company The Concerto Group. The group comprises of 16 brands that provide event management, venues, catering and event services.
Winchester House has a rich and varied history. A motto on the building’s gates, ‘Think and Thank’, dates back to its Cromwellian links and the Putney Debates of about 1646. In the early 1650s Cromwell oversaw a somewhat puritanical Church in England; the words 'Think and Thank' are to be found in churches of that period. Oliver Cromwell billeted his officers at Winchester House.

Perfect wedding venue
We held our wedding reception at Winchester House this summer. From the moment we met Heidi and were shown the venue with its beautiful rooms and gardens we knew it was perfect for us.Sent on 18/12/2019
So many other venues we visited were promising until you saw the main reception room as they always seemed to be soulless 'underground bunkers'. Winchester House's ballroom however is on the first floor and full of natural light overlooking the river. It is stunning!
We had canapes, a three course wedding breakfast and evening snacks. We also opted for the full drinks packages as it was so reasonably priced.
Everything was perfect and we have received so many compliments from our guests who have also commented on how lovely the staff were.
Heidi ensured that we had the best wedding day and I cannot thank her enough. Simply wonderful.
