Michelham Priory is a historic site with over 800 years of history set amidst the glorious East
Sussex countryside. Set in 7 acres of beautiful gardens, Michelham Priory is sited on an island surrounded by Englandâ€™s longest water filled moat.
From the moment you step through the 14th century Gatehouse, walking past the Tudor Manor House to the Elizabethan Great Barn, your future meets with the past. Every step of the way, your wedding day becomes part of the rich tapestry of history that is Michelham Priory, creating memories you will cherish forever. The charming gardens, grounds and house offer you the perfect backdrop to create the most memorable and stunning wedding photographs.
