About Wookey Hole Caves

Wookey Hole Caves is a wedding venue in the Mendip Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the heart of Somerset, England. Located deep beneath the picturesque, rolling hills lies the ultimate fairytale destination, where wonder and possibility flit and permeate the atmosphere like echoes off the cave’s ancient and majestic chambers.

Facilities and Capacity

Wookey Hole Caves comprises three chambers featuring stunning rock formations and clear pools, all illuminated by dancing candlelight. The largest chamber can hold up to 110 guests, but the caves are also a perfect setting for more intimate ceremonies. The Water Wheel Suite is also available for above-ground ceremonies. This unique and elegant function room is located in Wookey Hole’s 17th-century Grade II listed Paper Mill. The suite features exposed brickwork that gives the space a rustic, welcoming feel. The venue also boasts a delightful restaurant, which can seat up to 200 reception guests. The restaurant is fitted with colourful ceiling drapes, fine chandeliers, and lovely decorative mirrors and includes an adjoining bar. Overnight accommodation for you and your guests is available at the Wookey Hole Hotel, situated within easy walking distance of the caves and restaurant. The hotel has 58 guest rooms plus a two-storey VIP Tower Suite for you and your new spouse. Your stay in the Tower Suite also includes a complimentary breakfast, a bottle of the venue’s finest champagne and a family ticket to the Wookey Hole attractions.

    Absolutely amazing

    From start to finish Lucy, wedding coordinator, was brilliant. All communication was clear, efficient and personal. Lucy was extremely professional yet made you feel like you were the only wedding she was helping to organise. The cave was just stunning and decorated exactly as asked.
    The guides to take you through were lovely.
    Our canapés, pre dinner drinks and entertainment were wonderful and went down very well with the guests.
    We had the hog roast and it was delicious.
    Our bar staff were just so friendly and lovely to chat with.
    The whole wedding experience itself was perfect. We wouldn't change a thing.
    The only "negative" is the actual hotel itself. It just lacks any atmosphere. So as long as you realise all you will do is sleep and get ready there you'll be fine.
    If anybody asked me would I recommend wookey as a wedding venue I would 100% say yes. Every single member of staff make your day(and stay) so so special
