Located opposite Canterbury’s ancient city walls, the Chaucer is an award winning listed hotel. We are licensed for civil marriages and offer a choice of suites to suit your party’s size. So whether you’re planning a small intimate wedding or a large celebration we can accommodate you and your guests.
Every wedding celebration is different, that is why we tailor make the day to suit you. There are no hidden costs, just suggestions and ideas that help create the perfect day. From your initial enquiry our experienced team will be at your service every step of the way. Our head chef will meet with you and discuss the creation of your wedding breakfast menu and this can be as simple or as complex as you wish it to be. On the day we will allow you to enjoy every special minute by ensuring the perfect running of the event.
Just like the wedding breakfast, there are no rules about the evening reception. Over the years we have seen discos, jazz bands, magicians, casino tables and karaoke to name but a few varieties of entertainment. Whether your taste is for magic or music we will be happy to give assistance or leave you to arrange your own entertainment. However you want to make your party go with a swing.
The Chaucer also has 42 well appointed bedrooms including family rooms and a bridal suite and we would be delighted to offer preferential rates for those guests who wish to stay with us over the duration of your celebrations. Plus with the benefit of 40 free parking spaces for our guest’s use, family and friends can make the most of their time staying in the beautiful city of Canterbury.
