Information For Charleston

Charleston is a stunning House, Garden and Art Gallery situated in the South Downs. From 1916, it was the home to key members of the Bloomsbury Group and opens its door for weddings from 2020.

A wedding at Charleston enjoys use of the charming grounds including the Centenary Garden for reception drinks and bridal party photographs in the famous Walled Garden or orchard. Guests can then head over to The Hay Barn and adjoining Threshing Barn for the weddings breakfast and party. There is ample on-site parking for guests.

The L-shaped, adjoining barns' interior comprises of mellow flint and brick walls, with a stunning, vaulted timber framed roof. A beautiful polished concrete floor with underfloor heating brings the Barns into the present moment and there are some useful additions including staging and a PA system.

Preservation is at the heart of Charleston and so some initials carved in to the timber, blackened beans from a past fire and weather metal girders were all kept. The space is flexible and so can suit numbers from 50-250. As well as weddings, Charleston can host other styles of private and corporate events.
