Diverse and Beautiful Gardens for Every Taste

At Allington Castle, we pride ourselves on offering a variety of garden styles to suit all preferences. Our eco-friendly gardens and wildflower meadows demonstrate our commitment to the environment, providing a sustainable setting for your special day surrounded by natural beauty and biodiversity. In addition, our exquisite parterres, manicured lawns and fountain present a more traditional, elegant setting for capturing unforgettable wedding photographs. 

Elegant and Refined Ceremony Space

The Great Hall

The heart of Allington Castle, the Great Hall, boasts a grand and historic atmosphere with its impressive stone walls and high wooden ceilings, creating a unique and enchanting space for your ceremony. A beautiful Steinway piano is available for your chosen pianist to play, adding an extra touch of sophistication to your event. The Great Hall also features a minstrel gallery, perfect for harpists, string quartets, jazz, blues, or swing ensembles, taking advantage of the amazing acoustics. This remarkable space is ideal for a romantic and elegant ceremony, wedding breakfasts or for smaller intimate weddings as an alternative to going to the registrar’s office.

A Unique Evening Reception Experience

The 17th Century Barn

Evening receptions take place in our beautifully restored 17th-century barn as the lit-up castle provides a stunning backdrop to the festivities. Inside the barn, elegant white drapes and twinkling fairy lights create an unforgettable atmosphere for your celebration.

As the night goes on, your guests can head over to our permanently set up upmarket cash bar. Located in a glassed-off area of the barn, guests can sit down and relax without feeling separated from the party. The barn’s ambience, combined with this space’s convenience, makes for a truly special experience. As you enjoy the magical ambience indoors, our charming, picket-fenced lawns at the rear of the barn offer a delightful space for guests to unwind during summer evenings. The festoon-lit lawns, overlooked by our enchanting alpaca paddock, add a touch of whimsy and charm to our idyllic setting.

At Allington Castle, we understand that planning a wedding can be stressful, which is why we offer a one-stop-shop experience.  Unlike many other venues, we include a range of cost-saving things to ensure that your day is as stress-free as possible.
