Ideal Venue For

Wedding Receptions
Surrounded by a picturesque moat and accessed over its magnificent medieval drawbridge, this 13th-century Bishop's Palace is a historic, magical, and romantic location for truly enchanting wedding receptions.

The Bishop’s Palace has played host to lavish hospitality for over 800 years. This truly unique venue offers you access to a medieval vaulted Undercroft, the Palace Long Gallery, outdoor terrace and acres of stunning gardens to stroll across in the evening and which are perfect as a breath-taking backdrop to those all-important photographs to mark your special day.

Be a King and Queen for the day and exclusively hire the Palace and gardens - it’s just like having your own stately home! Princes and Princesses hire the Palace for the day and enjoy the attention they receive from our garden visitors. Dukes and Duchesses and Lords and Ladies enjoy evening parties, lunches or canapés and drinks and have their photographs taken in the beautiful gardens.

We have put together a choice of hire packages so you can tailor your day to suit you and your guests. Please get in touch with us for a brochure to inspire you, and then talk to us about your requirements; we can provide a quote for you - prices start from £2500. To help you plan your day we’ve also put together a list of wedding professionals who we think can add a little extra sparkle. All of them have worked with us before and have been hand picked by us because we love what they do - do get in touch to find out more.

We have also have a special all-inclusive Winter Wedding package for 2017 and 2018 for only £6500 - contact us to find out more.

Don’t forget, we’re here before and after your wedding day so if you like the idea of a pre-wedding dinner or BBQ in the gardens, photo sessions or Sunday lunch the day after in The Bishop’s Table then let us know and we can help you arrange that too.

From helping to organise timings, decorations and menu taste-testing, to preparing the rooms and setting up your tables on the day, The Bishop's Palace's dedicated wedding planner will ensure the coordination of your event is as smooth as possible, leaving you to relax and look forward to the exciting day ahead!
