The Grounds and Gardens of Herstmonceux Castle is the perfect fairytale wedding venue.
The name Herstmonceux is itself a fusion of surnames between Idonea de Herste and nobleman Ingelram de Monceux. It is fitting that such a superb wedding venue has romantic beginnings and explains why couples marrying at Herstmonceux Castle feel it a romantic ambience beyond the beautiful setting.
Outside you and your guests can enjoy acres of parkland, carefully maintained lawns and formal period gardens containing hundreds of species of flowers and plants as well as an enclosed court yard and bridge entrance over the castle moat.
Inside we have a range of beautiful rooms to choose from. Depending on the size of your party we can provide an intimate rustic room with open fireplace and high ceilings or should you have a grand banquet in mind our magnificent ballroom is ideal for a reception to remember.
Guests have on-site accommodation available to them so there is no need for expensive taxi fares and we provide that all important continental or cooked breakfast in the morning. Where else could you have the chance to stay in a castle apartment for your first night (all accommodation is subject to availability).
