Overlooking the town’s beautiful waterfront, the Grade II–listed Christchurch Harbour Hotel and Spa is ideal for those couples who dream of a seaside wedding. With all the typical charming characteristics of a British coastal resort, Christchurch and the hotel can provide all the necessary facilities for both a fantastic wedding celebration and a relaxing seaside break afterwards.

Offering generous accommodation discounts for wedding guests with use of the luxury in-house spa, there is absolutely no need to leave immediately after the evening celebrations, and wedding parties are actively encouraged to stay on and enjoy the seaside resort.


The town of Christchurch is steeped in history. The natural inlet spreading out below the hotel served as one of England's most significant harbours in Saxon times, and later on it enabled much illicit smuggling to take place during the 18th and 19th centuries. Other notable early features in the town include an Anglo-Saxon watermill, a Priory church dating from 1094 and a Norman castle which was used for defensive purposes in 1645 during the Civil War. The hotel was constructed in 1830 and is Grade II-listed.
