The beautiful house and its impressive gardens and grounds is located within 120 acres of picturesque countryside, and is within easy reach of both Gatwick Airport and London. When planning your wedding here, you will be treated to the help and support of Helen and her event coordinators. Additionally, you and your guests can stay overnight in the hotel's luxurious rooms and suites.


The construction of Alexander House is thought to have started during the early years of the 17th century, as one of the stones that makes up the boundary wall can be dated to 1608. With connections to the famous poet Percy Bysshe Shelley as well as a former Governor of the Bank of England, Alexander House has an interesting history. It wasn't until 1984 that the country house came to be named Alexander House, and several years later, in 2006, the hotel and spa opened. Alexander House now offers various wedding packages, including exclusive use of the hotel, in order that you can find exactly the right arrangement for your big day.


Alexander House offers you the choice of four varying hospitality spaces in which you can host your civil ceremony and reception celebrations, including both indoor and outdoor locations that can readily accommodate either smaller or larger wedding parties.


This cosy, bijou yet beautiful room is absolutely perfect for intimate and personal wedding ceremonies with as few as two guests to act as witnesses. During the reception, you and your small party can enjoy outstanding views of the hotel's fabulous gardens.

Civil Ceremony Capacity - 10 Guests
Formal Reception Capacity - 10 Guests

Formal Reception Capacity - 16 Guests

When hosting your wedding at Alexander House, you will be treated to the culinary skills of the hotel's catering team, led by their Executive Chef, Darrel Wilde.

Alexander House is conveniently located at Turner's Hill near Crawley, and thus within easy reach of Gatwick Airport and London. However, if you and your guests would prefer to relax within the hotel itself, you could stay in their 58 gorgeous rooms and suites.

  • Lottie and Darren, July 2019

    Our day was everything we could of wished for & more. We were extremely blessed with the sun shining on us, rather than thunderstorms which were forecasted for our day.
    It was so wonderful to have Rebecca as our wedding coordinator, we felt she went above and beyond to help ensure we had the best day. Zsolt is a very special man indeed, I can see why he is a manager of the banqueting team. Zsolt in my opinion cares about what he does & this really shines through in how he deals with people. Zsolt’s amazing nature is just second to none & we are most grateful to him for all he did for us. Personally I’m one for appreciating good customer service, I really believe it’s the people who you deal with in any experience who can make it.

  • Athina and James, July 2019

    We just wanted to say thank you again for helping us organise our wedding on Friday. We had the most amazing day and wouldn’t change a thing!

  • Maddalena and Ashley, June 2019

    I don’t even know how to put into words what an amazing day we had. Everything at the hotel was just perfect. Our guests all said what a beautiful location it was. We were so lucky with the weather as it just showed the hotel off beautifully. We are still buzzing from the day. Jessica the biggest thank you to you and your team who all helped to make our day truly memorable. You’ve been so patient with all our incessant questions. We will definitely be back next year for our anniversary.

  • Simon and Charlotte Leach – 08/2016

    We're writing to thank you very much for the use of your lovely hotel for our wedding last year. It was the best day of our lives and want to thank everyone that worked at Alexander House for the three days we were there! The service was amazing from our pre wedding taster evening till the last day of the wedding and we both can't stop talking about our special day at your amazing venue. Everyone was so great and the service was beyond what we could imagine, from the moment we got there till the time we left was like we were in a dream and didn't want the bubble to burst. It certainly didn't!!! Can't wait till our night at Alexander House later this month!

  • Laura-May and Liv – 07/2016

    We LOVED our wedding so much. It was so much more perfect than either of us had dreamed of - thank you so much for all of your help. We're actually coming back next Friday for a spa stay because we miss Alexander House so much!

  • Matt and Donna – 07/2016

    We would like to say a big thank you to the team at Alexander House for helping to make our day so special. The staff were excellent, especially Jaideep, and the food was amazing. All of our guests commented on how well the day went and were really impressed with the venue and service received.
    We look forward to coming back another time to stay and make use of the spa facilities.
