Information For Hampton Court Castle

Hampton Court Castle is a beautiful 15th century castle nestled in 500 acres of Herefordshire countryside. An exclusive-use venue with exquisite reception rooms, renowned gardens & 24 unique bedrooms.

Within the castle we can host civil ceremonies and celebrations to suit any style of wedding whether you are looking for something more traditional, informal or extravagant. As well as the reception rooms, there are also numerous unique features including the spectacular counter-levered stairway, central stone staircase with decorative ceiling, captivating cloisters and hidden doorways.

We are pleased to be able to offer both indoor and outdoor spaces for your ceremony. The chapel is perfect for a traditional style ceremony or blessing, with huge stained glass windows, pews and an ornate painted ceiling. The central courtyard offers a magnificent setting, with ornamental trees and views down to the gatehouse, surrounded by original crenellation.

For your reception, the castle is a fantastic entertaining space with great versatility. Welcome your guests in the library, with glorious views and steps down to the south lawns. Here they can enjoy drinks and canapes.

The grand ballroom is a spectacular location for the wedding breakfast. With tall ceilings, lavish chandeliers and grand mirrors it offers the perfect backdrop for your first meal as a married couple. We have carefully created our menus to include a wide variety of exciting dishes, beautifully presented, using only the highest quality ingredients, which are locally sourced wherever possible. There is also a ceremonial sword to cut your wedding cake.

The castle grounds boast a wide array of gardens offering endless possibilities for exquisite photographs. These include stunning water features, island pavilions, a waterfall and a 200 year old Wisteria Arch. The gothic tower at the centre of the maze offers panoramic views of the estate.

There are 24 spacious guest bedrooms, for family and friends to stay, with breakfast in the impressive formal dining room the following morning. Here you can really enjoy the intimacy of your exclusive castle getaway.

With the castle available for weddings all year round, there is something for every season whether it be the first greens of spring, the glory of summer blooms, soft tones of autumn leaves or a magical winter wedding with roaring open fires.

Couldn't fault the day at all
We had the most wonderful weekend at Hampton court, and we really couldn't fault the day at all. It all ran so smoothly, and I'm so thankful that we had so little to worry about on the day, so we could just try to take it all in. If we were to do it all over again we'd be back at Hampton Court in a heartbeat.

Stunningly beautiful
As soon as we pulled onto the drive for the first time, we knew that Hampton Court Castle was where we would get married. It is stunningly beautiful, steeped in history and a truly magical place to be. We were totally overwhelmed by the kindness and hospitality we experienced from every member of staff. We would both like to express our enormous gratitude for creating the most spectacular wedding that we could have hoped for.

Surpassing all expectations!
We considered ourselves incredibly lucky just to have such an amazing venue, but the care and attention your team gave us was exceptional. From putting us in contact with some amazing suppliers (florist, photographer, cake maker) to the chef being so accommodating with such an amazing menu and all the staff who helped make the day proceed without a glitch. It was the most amazing and magical day and we can’t thank you enough for making it so special and surpassing all our expectations!
