About Lewes Castle wedding venue

Lewes Castle is one of the few wedding venues in the South East England where vows can be exchanged in the open air in glorious breath-taking surroundings.

Standing proudly at the heart of the beautiful South Downs, the castle offers you and your guests a unique historic venue with unrivalled hilltop views of the surrounding country southwards to the sea and northwards towards the Weald.

Built more than 900 hundred years ago as a Norman stronghold, its first owners were William de Warenne and his beloved wife Gundrada. Now we invite you too, to share in the Castle’s romance and become a part of its never-ending story.

Under the glorious Sussex sky, brides make their way to the top of the Keep, replacing the traditional walk down the aisle with that of the zigzag steps. Ceremonies are held in the stunning setting of the Pleasure Garden, where the bride and groom are married under the arch of the old medieval West Tower.

An audience of up to eighty guests may share in your ceremony from under the shade of the lime tree and do not worry we can provide cover in if it rains!

From the high towers of Lewes Castle guests can see far and wide into the distant countryside. From the twisting streets of the original medieval town across to the rolling South Downs the views are truly spectacular and provide an unbeatable backdrop for photographs.

After the ceremony the wedding party descends to the lower Gun Garden where many couples choose to hold their own truly unique and bespoke wedding receptions or arrange for their own canapés and drinks to be served by our friendly and dedicated staff team before departing for elsewhere.

In the Gun Garden you may be joined by up to a hundred friends and relatives to celebrate your wedding day. What better way to cel¬ebrate your special day than by spending the day at your very own fairy tale Castle.
