Nestled in acres of beautiful parkland, Charlton House & Gardens provides the perfect backdrop to your big day.

  • The Old Library arranged for a wedding breakfast
  • Rolls-Royce wedding car outside Charlton House

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.

Please pre-book your viewing via telephone or email.
