This is a day you’ll look back on forever – so we endeavour to fill it with wonder.

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.

We also provide an exceptional range of accommodation for you and your guests. Our 72 individually designed, boutique-style bedrooms offer comfort and choice for those who would like to stay.

Top Wedding Tips

CHOOSE YOUR SUPPLIERS WISELY – AND DON’T BE AFRAID TO PUT THEM TO THE TEST Always use trusted wedding suppliers for your cake, stationery and styling, etc. Make sure you see samples of the products.

DON’T FORGET THAT IT’S YOUR WEDDING DAY! The thing couples often forget is that it is their wedding. Don’t think too much about what other people expect – your wedding should be what you want.

YOUR DAY WILL BE MAGICAL, COME RAIN OR SHINE You can never guarantee the weather, so don’t book a venue based on the idea of how a summer wedding could be to avoid altering proceedings on the day.
