About Pelham House wedding venue

Located in the heart of Lewes, East Sussex, Pelham House offers the ideal location for a perfect wedding day. The four-star, 16th Century town house hotel has been beautifully restored to provide an elegant and classic venue.

From the ceremony in the Terrace Room to your first night of married life in our bridal suite, you can have your whole day at Pelham House. You can also hire the venue on an exclusive basis for your private wedding party.

The Terrace Room boasts stunning views over the gardens, stretching out to the beautiful scenery of the South Downs. With exclusive use of the terrace area, the room is a popular choice for ceremonies and small wedding breakfasts. For a more intimate ceremony, our Panelled Room offers a warm and stately area in which to say your vows.

Our newly licensed gazebo provides a stunning location for an outdoor ceremony of up to 90 seated guests. The outdoor setting offers fantastic photo opportunities within our gardens.

When the day is sadly over, the gorgeous bridal suite is just upstairs. We also offer accommodation for up to 70 of your guests. All of our 36 bedrooms are beautifully decorated with a combination of modern and historic features.

Our wedding packages have been created to include all of your wedding essentials. Pelham House’s experienced chef has designed some delicious set menus all made, where possible, from fresh local produce. If you desire something more specific, we can tailor a package to suit you.

If you would like to visit Pelham House, you can attend one of our regular open days, we can organise a personal showround, or why not pop in for an Afternoon Tea. For more information, please contact us!
