The Rose and Crown Hotel, Colchester
Built in the 14th century, making it Colchester's oldest hotel, The Rose and Crown Hotel is one of the town's most iconic buildings and an Essex wedding venue like no other.
The interiors are brimming with period character and quirky artefacts, while oak-beamed walls create a romantic, cosy atmosphere. Bursting with heritage, the 39-bedroom hotel even has a prison in the basement! Step outside to find the Secret Garden and its jasmine-covered arbour.
Celebrations can be held in a number of spaces for up to 80 ceremony guests and 160 evening guests. Partition doors between the Rose Suite and the Oak Room give the flexibility to open up the space into a much larger banqueting suite. For a memorable, intimate wedding, couples can opt for the Prison Wine Bar (20 guests).
We love... Newlyweds will love spending their first night as a married couple in one of the hotel's most luxurious four-poster bedrooms. They'll also benefit from free menu tastings and a red-carpet arrival.
