About Leeds Castle wedding venue

Surrounded by 500 acres of parkland and gardens, Leeds Castle is an idyllic setting for the most romantic of weddings in any season.

“The loveliest castle in the world” offers a choice of venues and packages, including residential weddings within the castle and grounds for your ceremony and celebrations.

From the initial viewing, to the great day itself, our service is tailored to meet your specific wishes and ensure that your wedding day is perfect.
The castle and its magnificent grounds are owned by the Leeds Castle Foundation - a charitable trust established in 1974 by the castle’s last private owner, the Hon Olive, Lady Baillie. She, like so many other illustrious owners, fell in love with Leeds Castle, and its care and conservation became her life’s work.

There is a choice of venues at Leeds Castle in which to hold your wedding and are all licensed for civil marriage and partnership ceremonies. The Castle offers the Dining Room to hold your ceremony, followed by your wedding breakfast served in the impressive Henry VIII Banqueting Hall. There are 20 bedrooms within the castle to accommodate guests. The Maiden’s Tower is a self-contained venue on the castle island offering two tapestry hung rooms to hold your ceremony and celebrations, and also has a private garden for outside drinks receptions. There are also five en-suite bedrooms available. The Fairfax Hall is available for evening receptions and for larger parties, the Cedar Lawn can be hired for marquee weddings.
Accommodation is available across the estate including 17 newly refurbished bed and breakfast rooms in the stable courtyard.

Leeds Castle offers a host of finishing touches including musical entertainment and stunning flower arrangements prepared by the castle’s florist. We also have on-site caterers who will discuss your food and drink requirements with you.

When it comes to photographs, Leeds Castle, set in the valley of the River Len in the heart of the Garden of England, must be unrivalled for its spectacular scenery and backdrops.

Janet Bagshaw's Review

We stayed in the castle in the Turrett State bedroom on a tour. It was the highlight of our trip. We had a medieval dinner in Henry VIII dining room. Our 2 night stay was wonderful. What a gem!!!...
