About

Upton House is a late Georgian Grade II* listed building, set within the beautiful grounds of Upton Country Park. The house was built by Christopher Spurrier between 1816 – 1818, on what was then the Upton Estate. Following an intriguing 200 years of history, including links to the Titchborne Trials, the house and estate were passed on to the Borough of Poole in 1957

In 1976 the Country Park was officially opened to the public and, following extensive renovations by the Borough of Poole and the Country Park’s own charity group, the house began to host weddings shortly after.

Reviews

  • Kayleigh and Tarik

    We’re so happy with the service we received, from start to finish. We were able to tailor everything to our preferences, and everyone was so flexible. On the day, everything was like a well-oiled machine! You really did help to make our day perfect, so thank you so much.

  • Iain and Julie

    The whole experience of organising our day was made so easy by the staff at Upton, especially when done on such a short timescale. The day was relaxed and enjoyable, and went so smoothly. The staff were always checking to ensure we were happy and if there was anything else that could be done.

  • Mike and Cheryl

    We cannot fault the service that we were given from the initial enquiry through to our wedding day. From the outset we were able to speak on the phone or email the staff at Upton house and we always got a speedy reply. Most of our requests were met with very few exceptions (imposed restrictions due to the listed nature of the building).

    On the day itself all the staff were so helpful and it all seemed quite seamless. We barely noticed that they were there, and we have no complaints at all about the service given. From the outset the service from the catering team was also exceptional. From our first meeting with Simon we were left feeling very happy that all would be good on the day. Communication and flexibility of the menu was great and on the day itself Simon was able to juggle our last-minute request for an open bar very well. The food was lovely, and the service was just right as far as we were concerned. No guests have complained to us and all seemed very happy!

  • Lydia and Scott

    The whole process was easy and any questions I had were answered promptly. The food exceeded my expectations and my guests were very impressed.

  • Jenni and John

    We had a fantastic day! 10/10 across the board. We couldn’t have picked a better, reasonably priced venue for our day. Thank you to Poppy especially, as she was always there to answer any questions I had, right up to and on the day itself. Also, thank you to all the staff that set up the room and served the wedding breakfast

  • Rachel

    Upton House and Country Park is an absolutely amazing place to get married. We decided to hire the house for the day and I couldn’t have wished for anywhere better to get married. The staff were incredible and the grounds are stunning, we were also given a very reasonable price. This will stay with me forever and I cannot explain how blessed I feel to have had the day of my dreams at Upton.
