About New Place wedding venue

As you arrive through the ornate wrought-iron gates, New Place never fails to impress. This grade I listed house is a true masterpiece of brickwork: a home that combines Tudor and Elizabethan eccentricities with subtle, modern touches.

Fittingly, the home was commissioned as a wedding gift, designed and built by the famous British architect, Sir Edwin Lutyens. He merged the interior of an existing 17th century mansion with his own signature style. The results are nothing short of spectacular.

To this day, the mansion remains a place of breathtaking beauty and historic grandeur, but also warmth and personality. Whether it’s your reception, your ceremony or both, we’ll make sure your day is as individual, exciting and memorable as you have always dreamed.

We offer comprehensive packages all of which include the following:
White Table Linen, Dance Floor, Hire of Cake Stand and Cake Knife, Complimentary Accommodation for Bride and Groom, Master of Ceremonies - our Function Manager and more.

The Bristol Room within the Manor House is licensed to hold civil ceremonies for up to 80 guests with the Dining Room for 90 guests. The Arden Suite is located behind the Manor house in a separate building & is licensed for civil ceremonies for up to 110 guests.

Although we don’t have spa facilities on site, we are in close proximity to Baytree Beauty salon, which comes highly recommended and can offer the Bridal party some essential pampering for the big day.

Additional details:

New Place is a wonderful blend of traditional charm and modern comfort set in 32 acres of pristine parkland. Guests stay in the delightful mews quarters located a short distance from the Grade I listed manor house with its impressive facade.

With its convenient location and easy access from the M3 and M27, New Place is in an enviable position, surrounded by local attractions and places of interest - places like Portsmouth's historic Dockyard and Marwell Zoo.

Type of Cuisine:

Our menus are only limited by your imagination as our Chef Mark Grieveson would be happy to discuss your ideas.
