Castle Keep - Lower Gun Room

Crossing a stone bridge, you enter the Castle Keep through an ancient arched doorway complete with its original Tudor Portcullis and topped by the Royal Coat of Arms. The Lower Gun Room is an enchanting place to exchange your vows, steeped in nearly five hundred years of history.

Traditional wooden benches are set on each side of the aisle, lined with gunpowder barrels positioned to create an enchanting entrance. Tapestry hangings, flowers and candlelight can complete the picture.

Ceremony: 120 people
Drinks: 120 people

Castle Chemise

Just a step or two away and surrounding the Castle Keep is a grassy 'Chemise' within a circular stone wall. This outdoor secluded space is ideal for an exclusive drinks reception following your ceremony. For centuries the Chemise was an external gun platform, now it is a popular focal point for photography.

Drinks: 120 people

Royal Artillery Barracks

Just a short walk beyond the Tudor Keep stands the Royal Artillery Barracks, built in 1901 to house the Royal Garrison Artillery. It is now converted into a smart banqueting suite, providing a choice of three contemporary rooms licensed to hold Civil Wedding Ceremonies, where you and your guests can dine and dance the night away.
