A venue steeped in history

Built during the reign of James I and one of the finest examples of Jacobean domestic architecture in the country, Charlton House enjoys a fascinating history of intrigue and romance.

Our beautiful wedding halls and reception areas are rich in period detail, featuring original fireplaces, wood panelling and intricate strapwork ceilings.

You and your guests will treasure photographs taken in our lovingly restored walled gardens and, on a warm summer’s afternoon, toasting your new spouse with a glass of champagne in the soft tranquillity of the Peace Garden, will surely be a moment to remember.

Reception Hire

Four ornate rooms, long sweeping driveway, beautiful walled gardens, Charlton House is as versatile as it is unique for your wedding celebration. Our beautiful wedding halls and reception areas can accommodate up to 150 guests and are rich in period detail, featuring original fireplaces, wood panelling and intricate strapwork ceilings.

Arrive in style by car or carriage as you travel slowly up the driveway to the house. Greeted with a glass of champagne and escorted through to the beautiful walled gardens for your reception drinks and photographs, capturing happy memories for you and your guests. After drinks move onto your wedding breakfast served by our expert caterers, before dancing the night away with your friends and family.

Ceremony Hire

Hold both your ceremony and reception in our beautiful Jacobean manor house and grounds, with three rooms licensed for civil ceremonies offering the perfect setting for exchanging your vows.

The Grand Salon, Long Gallery, and Old Library are all available for civil ceremony hire featuring beautiful wood panelling, marble fireplaces, original Jacobean strapwork ceilings, and stunning views across the grounds and gardens. The Grand Salon holds 80 people, and the Long Gallery allows 110.

To book your ceremony at Charlton House you must also contact Royal Borough of Greenwich Registry Office. Whilst we are able to hold a date until you confirm details with the registrar, we would advise that you confirm their availability as early as possible.


Our list of caterers each offer a unique and tailored menu for your special day. From drink receptions and canapes to afternoon teas to elegant three course meals using food from all over the world, our caterers will help to make your day that extra bit special.

Prefer to bring in your own caterer or serve up your own alcohol? Our self-catering & corkage fee for 2023-24 is £950.

Thank you so much for such a beautiful venue for our wedding last week. We have received so many compliments from our guests.
