It is a genuine pleasure to introduce the magnificent Hampton Court House, prestigious events venue and filming location situated on the edge of Bushy Park, just minutes away from Kingston upon Thames. The Grade II-listed Georgian mansion and its splendid ornamental gardens make the perfect magical backdrop to any wedding celebration day.

Full of captivating elements, from rustling palm trees in the Winter Garden, or a heart-shaped lake, to hidden details such as the Shell Grotto, rabbits basking in the sun and more, this gorgeous Rococo manor is perfect for all weddings, from the most intimate family affair to lavish events for celebrities. The house is licensed to host civil ceremonies for up to 150 guests.


This stunning mansion was built in the mid-18th century by order of the 2nd Earl of Halifax, specifically for his mistress of the time! The house and gardens were designed by renowned architect and astronomer Thomas Wright, whose works include theorising that our galaxy, the Milky Way, is in fact disc-shaped. In the garden's Grade II*-listed Shell Grotto, also designed by Wright, you'll see his fascination with the universe come to life.

Today Hampton Court House is home to an independent co-educational school, and is available as a venue for events at particular points in the year, notably during summer months.


The Main House

The exquisite mansion presents a stunning variety of spaces in which you can enjoy your wedding celebrations, from the lovely Theatre to Main Hall, Conservatory, Ballroom or Dining Room.

Dining Room Ceremony Capacity - 150 Guests
Conservatory Reception Capacity - 100 Guests

Sunken Gardens And Grotto

Photo-opportunities and vantage-points for drinks receptions abound! Architect and astronomer Thomas Wright designed these delectable features, and the separately Grade II*-listed, shell-adorned Grotto could be perfect for stealing a moment away from the inevitable clamour and glamour of your big day.


You are welcome to bring in and erect a marquee in the garden at Hampton Court House. Couples who do this could expect to seat up to 400 for a formal reception with the available space.


Hampton Court House has their own recommended caterers, highly capable of preparing anything from the most intimate events to large and lavish weddings. They prefer you to use a recommended caterer but bringing your own is possible subject to an additional charge of £2,000.


There are plenty of fantastic hotels to stay at nearby. The team at Hampton Court House are happy to give recommendations.

  • Kristina and Steven Cunningham - 17.08.19

    We had our wedding reception here in August 2019 and it was perfect. We fell in love with this place from the first time we visited and we knew it would be a truly special venue for us. From discovering the mansion from outside on arrival to being lead into the beautiful entrance hall really impressed all of our guests.
