The Duke of Cornwall Hotel


Information For The Duke of Cornwall Hotel

The Duke of Cornwall Hotel was made for moments like this. With its rich heritage and stunning character, it’s a superb venue choice for your Plymouth wedding celebration. The hotel’s striking gothic Victorian architecture makes it an iconic statement in the heart of the city – and stepping through the grand entrance, it’s apparent you’re in for something special. The hotel’s interior is a dazzling array of majestic spaces and beautiful features. With ornate period stylings and big statements like its stunning, sweeping staircase, the Duke provides the kind of character that couples dream of. As well as lending atmosphere to the occasion, this setting also provides irresistible backdrops to inspire great photography.

A further advantage we offer as a wedding venue is its variety of spaces. We have a number of luxury function suites available, allowing you to choose rooms that suit the size and tone of your wedding day.

The Duke of Cornwall Hotel is the ideal place for your civil ceremony or civil partnership. With your ceremony naturally the most momentous aspect of your whole wedding day, the location matters. And for many couples, the Duke’s history and heritage make it an apt setting for this milestone moment. With valuable experience in wedding ceremonies, we understand how to do justice to this beautiful event. We set the scene with a stunning room, further enhancing the unique setting. Our Master of Ceremonies will guide you, and put you at ease, as you take this joyous step into married life together.

Choosing the Duke for your civil wedding ceremony doesn’t just mean a gorgeous venue for entering into marriage. It also allows a smooth transition through the day’s events – from the service to the wedding breakfast and evening party – under one roof. On a day which is all about togetherness and celebration, this convenience is invaluable. And what better venue to do it all than at the iconic Duke.

Your first meal as a married couple is a jubilant part of the wedding day proceedings. And at The Duke of Cornwall Hotel, you’ll enjoy this traditional wedding breakfast in the style and luxury for which we’re renowned. Thanks to our AA-Rosette-awarded kitchen, you and your guests can experience an exquisite fine dining menu. Tailored to your tastes, and beautifully presented, our delicious courses will be a treat for you and your party of guests. All this, set against the hotel’s elegant backdrop, will be another moment to savour. As the celebration unfolds, our helpful and efficient staff will be on hand to ensure your day’s special events flow smoothly. The wedding breakfast may run into a reception, with traditional speeches and toasts. Whatever sequence you have planned for your own unique wedding day, you’ll be in capable hands.

With your wedding day’s formal events complete, your evening party provides a chance to unwind, dance and mingle. You might also be welcoming evening-only guests. And what better to round off a wonderful day than with a party at The Duke of Cornwall Hotel.
