Maidstone’s Allington Castle is one of Kent’s most exclusive wedding and civil ceremony venues.
Weddings can be held at this fully staffed, privately owned residence during the week and on weekends.
We’re located along the banks of the River Medway near Allington Lock, not far from Maidstone town, surrounded by a picturesque moat, manicured lawns, and fountains which are set in 42 acres of woodland.
No matter what type of wedding you’d prefer, we’re sure we can make your vision a reality, whether you would like an intimate 2-hour ceremony or a full-day celebration that includes the ceremony and reception in our beautiful 17th-century barn.
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 enjoy the romantic atmosphere that this grand room offers. (Capacity 100)
Why not relax and spend the rest of your evening reception with family and friends (Capacity 150) in our lovingly restored barn? We’ll light up the castle in the background, and you can choose from a simple buffet or a formal sit-down meal. A lovely festoon-lit lawn and upmarket drinks area are also available during warm summer evenings.
