The feel

Farnham Castle is a spacious, historic wedding venue for ceremonies and receptions, located at the top of Castle Street in Farnham, close to the border of Surrey and Hampshire. Set across five acres of breathtaking gardens, overlooking the idyllic town of Farnham, its lifted position and gorgeous views create the perfect scene for those special memories that will last a lifetime. Offering unique and historic entertainment rooms throughout, it is no surprise that Farnham Castle is considered to be one of the most enchanting wedding venues in England.

Wedding Ceremonies in the Lantern Hall:
The Lantern Hall dates to Norman times and is perfect for your civil ceremony. A simple and serene setting with impressive stone arches, natural wood floor, and 5 beautiful lancet windows that allow the natural light to filter through, creating a truly romantic setting for exchanging your vows.

Ceremony Chapels:
Farnham Castle has two beautiful chapels for eligible couples who would like a Church of England marriage service. The Norman Chapel offers traditional and simple features with a wooden floor and grand stone arch, whilst The Bishop’s Chapel is perfect for a more intimate ceremony with stunning white walls and architectural design reflecting the history of the Castle.

Wedding Receptions in the Great Hall:
The Great Hall, with its stained glass windows, grand fireplace, and magnificent gold-framed portraits is a stunning setting for your wedding breakfast and further evening celebrations. The wooden floor, beautiful stained glass windows, and soft neutral colour scheme make The Great Hall a spectacular space to truly impress your guests.

Bridal Preparation Gatehouse:
Gain access to our bridal preparation Gatehouse from 8am on the morning of your wedding. This unique 3-dressing room Gatehouse is ideal for bridal beauty prepartions with your bridesmaids and as it is located on-site, you will only have a short walk over to the Fox’s Steps ahead of your wedding ceremony. Pre-order a breakfast/brunch hamper with bubbles to calm your nerves and prepare for an exciting afternoon ahead.

Wedding Accommodation:
Farnham Castle offers our stunning Guildford Suite for the newlywed couple on the wedding night, plus a further 33 guest bedrooms for any guests wishing to stay over-night. Gather together in the Library the following morning for breakfast before commencing life as a married couple.

As perfect a venue as its likely to find.


Is your venue licensed for ceremonies inside and outside?
We offer a choice of four licensed spaces and two Church of England chapels; for either marriage ceremonies or blessings within the Castle. The Norman Chapel, The Bishop’s Chapel, and The Lantern Hall can each hold different capacities of guests but offer their own unique features and charm. You can even have an outdoor ceremony with a celebrant* presiding in our stunning grounds or a marquee.
Is there an exclusive use option?
When you book your wedding with us, the areas allocated to you will be entirely exclusive to you and you can be sure that we only hold one wedding per day. Should you wish to hire the entire Castle and grounds for your special day, please speak to our Wedding Specialists.
How many people can you accommodate for dining?
The Great Hall accommodates up to 200 guests for seated dining plus an additional 100 evening guests.
Are there bedrooms for overnight accommodation?
We have 32 guest rooms available at Farnham Castle across a range of en-suite single, twin, double and family rooms. In total we can accommodate up to 65 adult guests and up to 10 children under the age of 12. We also offer a luxurious honeymoon suite for the newlywed couple.
