Farnham Castle

The feel


Farnham Castle is a stunning, iconic and exclusive multi-award-winning venue for Weddings, set in five acres of beautiful grounds, overlooking the historic, market town of Farnham, on the Surrey and Hampshire border.  The Castle boasts Grade I and Grade II Listed Buildings with the most incredible history, and is the perfect destination for couples dreaming of somewhere unique.

The Venue:

The possibilities at Farnham Castle are endless, and we’d love to help you create an unforgettable day.

Our flexible approach means that you can choose where your Ceremony takes place, and where your guests dine, celebrate and party.  When you book your wedding at Farnham Castle, our wedding venue is exclusively yours – from our historic Lantern Hall, to our elegant Winchester Suite, and from our stunning Great Hall to our magnificent Great Lawn. We also host outdoor ceremonies on our East Lawn, overlooking our White Rose Garden, and if you’d like a Religious Ceremony at Farnham Castle we offer two beautiful Chapels from very different architectural periods.

We are able to host weddings of any size; from intimate weddings for 30 guests, to larger celebrations for over 250, and we have quite literally hosted weddings for couples from all around the world. We also have the best grounds for Marquees, with the most spectacular backdrops and views.

Getting ready on-site has so many benefits, and our ‘Gatehouse’ and ‘Pembroke’ are two perfect suites for you and your wedding party to enjoy being together as you prepare for your day.

Once your celebrations are over, and you have danced the night away in our Great Hall, and enjoyed night caps in our Tindle Bar, your guests will be overjoyed to head to one of our 33 ensuite Castle bedrooms and you will be delighted to reach the tranquillity and luxury of our Honeymoon Suite. Join your guests for Breakfast in our Library the following morning to ensure that everyone has celebrated with you until the very last minute.

Food and Drink:

At Farnham Castle we have our very own team of exceptional in-house chefs, who create the most wonderful Menus using the finest ingredients.  We are proud to have our own Kitchen Garden, and also to use many local suppliers.  We even have a bespoke ‘Castle sausage’ on the Breakfast Menu.

We offer a range of Dining Menus, with drinks included, in order to cater for every taste and budget. A typical menu for your guests could include a Champagne reception with Canapes, a three-course dining experience, including your choice of carefully selected wines, a surprise course, your toast, and our very popular Dessert Bar.  For a late-night snack why not offer your guests Wood-fired Pizzas from our Pizza oven, whilst your entire party enjoys a spectacular Firework display.

However you want to celebrate, our experienced team of Wedding Specialists will be happy to guide and advise you through your planning stages, and will be with you throughout your day to ensure that your Wedding is managed to perfection.
