Colchester Castle, Colchester

Colchester Castle, Colchester: Image 1 Located at the entrance of Castle Park, Colchester, Essex, Colchester Castle is steeped in thousands of years of history. Set in the heart of the town, and surrounded by manicured lawns and gardens, it's an idyllic backdrop for weddings.
Crossing the grand drawbridge into the venue, guests enter the Norman castle, which dates back to the 11th century. The keep is mostly intact and is the largest of its kind in Europe. Inside, hundreds of artefacts dating back to the Romans provide unique entertainment for guests.

Let's celebrate!
Weddings take place across all areas of the castle, giving parties the opportunity to explore this captivating setting. Ceremonies are held in The Chapel (80 guests) with its romantic vaulted ceilings and stained-glass windows, or couples can climb the spiral staircase to The Secret Chapel (36 guests), which is a rustic and natural space on the roof. The most popular area for wedding breakfasts is the Charles Gray Room. An elegant space, it overlooks the public gallery. During the meal, The Chapel is transformed into a party space for 130 revellers with its excellent acoustics and white walls perfect for a light show.

We love... Operating as a museum on a daily basis, couples can share their day with artefacts and exhibitions. After dark, the museum becomes exclusively theirs.
