The feel

The Clarendon is a beautiful venue at the heart of Blackheath Village with uninterrupted views of Blackheath towards Royal Greenwich Park.

Whether you are planning an informal party with just your closest friends and family, or a larger more traditional celebration of up to 150 guests, we have a range of elegant rooms and beautiful gardens available, and our experienced Wedding Coordinators can help you plan your perfect wedding day.

Both grand and welcoming with its relaxed yet efficient style, The Clarendon is independently owned and run, and we completely understand that it is the finer details that will make your day special. Our excellent standards of service and attention to detail will make sure that you can relax and enjoy an unforgettable day, with delicious food and drink to remember from our Head Chef and The Clarendon team.

This Georgian Hotel is perfectly positioned, wide open spaces and the historic Blackheath church are just outside the window � yet it is still easily accessible via transport links from central London.

And with over 100 bedrooms, including The Honeymoon Suite, there�s plenty of space for you and your guests, so getting everyone home is one less thing to think about.


We have an excellent selection of beautifully refurbished and individual rooms available for hire for both wedding ceremonies and wedding receptions.

The Meridian Suite and Garden

This beautiful Georgian room with crystal chandeliers overlooks our walled gardens, making it just perfect for your reception. You can start your day with arrival drinks and photos in our private garden, before your wedding breakfast.
