The School offers the distinct benefit of offering a complete wedding day in one location with a truly flexible space in which to stage your ceremony, reception drinks, wedding breakfast and evening event, and with enough space to avoid the need for turning round rooms with guests in occupation. Every wedding we hold is unique, entirely bespoke for you (on average we only hold around 17 weddings a year) so don’t hold back when discussing your ideas with us! With an elegant, sacred feeling space for ceremonies and drinks served on the top terrace overlooking one of the most famous battlefields in England surrounded by over 1000 years of history, Battle Abbey really has the wow factor you’re looking for.

We can seat up to 120 guests in the fantastic wood panelled Duke’s Library for your wedding breakfast and accommodate up to 250 for the evening entertainment. We don’t have many restrictions but due to the size of the venue we recommend a minimum of 75 guests for the day.

All our Canapés, Starters, Mains and Desserts are prepared on site using fresh and, where possible, local ingredients from East Sussex.

The cost to hold a wedding reception or ceremony and reception at Battle Abbey School ranges from £3,000 (midweek) to £5,000 (Saturday) and will include exclusive use of the whole school site and surrounding outdoor space. You will also have full access the day before to dress the venue as required. Pricing for drinks and food will depend entirely on your choices. We can lay on anything from a barbeque or hog roast up to a five course sit down formal meal. If there’s something you particularly want, just ask!

All our weddings are unique and we pride ourselves on being flexible. We probably aren’t as expensive as you might expect; with average Saturday prices at £100 a head (with plenty of ways to bring this figure down) and nearer £80 a head midweek why not contact us to find out how much your dream Abbey wedding might cost?
