Your day, Your place

The Place for Your Wedding

Penshurst Place is a stunning award-winning and exclusive wedding venue in the heart of Kent. For centuries it has been the backdrop to acts of chivalry and romance and a long tradition of sumptuous hospitality, hosting royalty as well as inspiring poets to write some of the most beautifully romantic verse.

The venue may be grand, the setting exquisite, but your wedding at Penshurst Place, nestled in the Weald of Kent, is all about you. Choose how you will host your day in the three beautiful 14th century banqueting rooms licensed for ceremonies. This includes the stunning medieval Baron’s Hall built in 1341, complete with open fire pit and Minstrels' Gallery, the impressive panelled Sunderland Room and the more intimate, stone Buttery. Our private Inner Courtyard also provides an outside space for ceremonies or receptions. Alongside these unparalleled surroundings, wedding guests will have access to the glorious Grade I listed Elizabethan Gardens which offer a most impressive photographic backdrop.

With the opportunity to have both your wedding ceremony and a distinctive reception here in one place, we pride ourselves in offering a personalised service to the very highest exacting standards. Your wedding is one of the most important days in your life and at Penshurst, we help to make it perfect.
