Abbey House Gardens


Information For Abbey House Gardens

Imagine your Wedding day held at a World Famous Garden in the lush countryside, including historic indoor spaces & enchanting reception rooms, surrounded by natural beauty. Your fairy-tale is here.

Abbey House Gardens is located on 5 and a half
acres in the heart of Medieval Malmesbury, the oldest town in all England. Our venue features manicured, woodland, orchard, and herb gardens and several elegant indoor environments.

We are proudly family run, with our bespoke wedding & garden business being our labor of love. Since 1998, Abbey House Gardens has thrived to become an internationally acclaimed attraction & unique wedding venue.

The history of the site dates back to the Iron Age, with the first King of England, King Aethelstan,
buried in our garden. The spirit of the site is pure magic, overlooking Malmesbury Abbey and situated in the centre of town. However, once inside the grounds, Abbey House Gardens feels so secluded & imitate, tucked away from the rest of the world. We have the largest private collection of roses in the entire U.K. When a bride & groom are enjoying nature with their loved ones, the smell of roses will intoxicate the air.

We offer exclusive tailored packages for our brides-to-be. Because Abbey House Gardens is our home and where we raise our children, it is so much more than a venue or business to us. This is reflected in how we treat our brides & grooms.

Whether one is looking for decadent & stylish reception rooms, to be one with nature, a place with historic significance, a garden theme, an intimate or grand atmosphere, the possibilities are seemingly endless here.

With 5 licensed spaces, including 2 outdoors, & elegant, one-in-the-world gardens, our venue is most versatile. Please request our Brochure to give an idea of what the dream Wedding Day looks like.
