What finer way to celebrate this special day than to marry at a monument to love built by a grieving widow in the late 18th century. Severndroog was built in 1784 by Lady Anne James to stand on the summit of Shooters Hill as a statement of love and to commemorate the achievements of her late husband, Sir William James.
We are happy to offer exclusive hire of Severndroog Castle, including all three floors, as well as access to our viewing platform at the very top, where guests can enjoy spectacular views of the London skyline.
The maximum occupancy of the building is 55 people and each floor holds 28 people seated and approx. 40 standing. There will also be outside seating for use in good weather. The viewing platform is limited to 10 people at a time. Please be aware that due to many stairs in the castle, access for people with poor mobility will be difficult.
We would be happy to show you Severndroog so it would be brilliant if you could let us know when you would like to visit the Castle.
