Longleat House and its 900-acre estate presents a resplendent and truly enchanting scene for any wedding ceremony, reception or evening celebration. As the first stately home in the UK to open its doors to the public, some will argue that the house is the definitive quintessential English manor house.

This luxurious venue is a truly extraordinary place, which combines many hundreds of years of history with a striking stately home, a series of landscaped parklands, and of course, the world-famous Safari Park. This Elizabethan paradise is licensed to host civil marriage and partnership ceremonies, and is ideal for wedding receptions!

The Elizabethan Great Hall

This fascinating Hall retains many 16th-century features from the original mansion, and has hosted social occasions and banquets throughout its history. Commence your wedding reception with drinks and canapés in the East Corridor, and then invite your guests to sit down for a delicious wedding breakfast in the adjacent Great Hall.

The Orangery

Created circa 1807, this conservatory has its very own Grade I listing, has captivating views of the house itself and is only a short stroll away from the hippos and sealions wallowing in the Half Mile Lake.
