Allington Castle is one of Kent’s most exclusive wedding and civil ceremony venues.
This fully staffed privately owned residence is not open to the public but is available for hire for weekday and weekend weddings.
Only a short distance from Maidstone town along the banks of the River Medway near Allington Lock, this beautiful medieval castle is surrounded by a picturesque moat, manicured lawns and fountains and is set in 42 acres of woodland.
Whether you want an intimate 2-hour wedding or a full-day wedding that includes your ceremony in our Great Hall and evening reception in our beautiful 17th-century barn we’re sure we’ll make your dream wedding a reality.
Follow the footsteps of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn who dined with Sir Thomas Wyatt in our Great Hall in the 16th century. You and your guests will fall in love with this grand room that sets a romantic ambience for a truly memorable ceremony. Capacity 100
Why not enjoy the rest of your evening with family and friends in our lovingly restored barn? We’ll light up the castle in the background, and you can enjoy a simple buffet or a formal sit-down meal – your choice! We also have an upmarket drinks area and a lovely festoon lit lawn area to be enjoyed during warm summer evenings.
