Bolton is a stunning medieval castle, built in 1399 and preserved in outstanding condition. It lies at the heart of Wensleydale, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and boasts views of some of the most beautiful countryside in England.
Mary, Queen of Scots spent six months here in 1568-1569 and it was held for the King during the Civil War.  Now, hundreds of years later, you can enjoy the splendour of Bolton Castle and entertain your guests as royalty once did. The castle has Civil Wedding, Drinks and Entertainments licenses.  We have a capacity for up to 240 inside, although the maximum in a single room is 120.  The Great Chamber, which retains all of its original character and charm will seat up to 120 people at tables and with a log fire burning, creates the perfect atmosphere to celebrate such an important occasion.

Additional details:

We have an extremely flexible approach to weddings, which means that your day can be exactly as you chose. We can organise and co-ordinate the whole event for you, however if you would like to do it yourself, we can let the castle on a venue only basis and you have the freedom to chose your own caterers, florists, bands etc.
