Founded around a nunnery in the early 13th century, Hinchingbrooke House was given to Richard Cromwell from Henry VIII. Since then the estate has seen many historic figures pass through its walls from Queen Elizabeth I to King James I, with Oliver Cromwell playing here throughout his childhood. The Tudor country House was then passed on the Montagu family i.e. Earls of Sandwich, and remained their ancestral home until the 1960s.


At Hinchingbrooke House there are a number of stunning venues to choose from. All of the larger rooms are located on the ground floor and are suitable for holding ceremonies. If you’re interested in Hinchingbrooke House, it is recommended that you attend a viewing first.

    We had a Pakistani wedding at Hinchingbrooke House and I have to say that the venue was fantastic. They adapted to the different style of wedding very well, going out of their way to meet all of our needs and providing Pakistani and halal food that was absolutely delicious (the guests all said it was the best wedding food they'd had!) Teri, Craig and Tim were very flexible and helpful, even allowing access to the hall the day before to set up. Everything ran smoothly and was very well organised. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, the venue was beautiful and all the staff were friendly and professional. Would highly recommend this venue to anyone!
