Featuring spectacular panoramic views over North Somerset, this Grade II-listed hilltop castle is a romantic, peaceful and picturesque setting for unforgettable civil wedding ceremonies and receptions.

Located in almost four acres of scenic countryside adjoining Clevedon Golf Club, Walton Castle’s luxurious wedding suites and bedrooms are all contained within its eight atmospheric turrets.

Depending on the size of their wedding party, couples can acquire exclusive use of the entire castle, or simply hire a few of the turrets. Catering options are very flexible, and couples can either cook for themselves in a fully-equipped kitchen, or a team of professional in-house caterers can work with them to develop a bespoke wedding menu. The castle's experienced event planner can offer a full coordination service, or simply help nudge each couple in the right direction.

About

Constructed on the site of an ancient Iron Age hill-fort, Walton Castle was built in the 17th century to serve as a hunting lodge for a wealthy Somerset landowner. Over the centuries the castle gradually became derelict, before it was bought and extensively restored to its former glory in the 1980s.

As Walton Castle is a family-run business, you can be assured of a personal touch. From sourcing your suppliers to creating table plans, a dedicated specialist wedding planner will work with you, advising and guiding you through all aspects of preparing for your wedding, and a bespoke package and price will then be created depending on your individual requirements.

    What a venue! We fell in love with the castle on a rainy, misty October day and we had our wedding here on Easter Saturday 2017. We'd viewed a couple of places before and apart from the castle being absolutely stunning, it was the attitude of Tracey and the staff that made us know booking it was the right choice. We booked the venue for 4 nights and really made the place our home.

    The team at Walton Castle can be as involved in the planning as you want them to be. We wanted a very personal wedding and so chose to do a lot ourselves but Tracey was always at the end of the phone when we needed some advice. Our guests were amazed by the castle and we are already trying to think of reasons we can go back there again as we had such an amazing time. Thank you to Tracey, Neil and the team at Walton Castle. We couldn't have found a nicer venue for our wedding or met a nicer team in the process. We will be back!

    We got married here this weekend and really can't have imagined a better venue. From the moment I went to visit the Castle I fell in love with the setting. Being able to hire the whole place for the weekend was just perfect, we were able to enjoy it over the three days and it became a home away from home. Tracey and Neil are both amazing, Neil especially on the weekend of our wedding couldn't have done any more or been more accommodating, he was the perfect barman/caretaker who even drove some people back to their hotel at the end of the night! If you want a private wedding full of your own touches then Walton Castle is the perfect choice!

    We had our wedding here and absolutely loved it. Perfect venue to give a grand but also homely feel. You can bring in your own caterers, drinks and entertainment so it's really an opportunity to make the day/weekend personal to you. If you have the castle for the weekend it also means the day doesn't need to end (!) and your nearest and dearest can stay in the castle with you. Beautiful and unique venue that received many rave reviews from our guests.

    What can I say, what an incredible venue!! Not only is it where we celebrated our wedding reception, but it also became our home for the weekend. A magical place that feels so special, yet a home from home, this place will hold a special place in our hearts forever. Exclusivity is priceless, and this is what the Castle gave us. Our friends and family were absolutely blown away by this secret hidden gem that sits in our town just minutes from our house. Not only an amazingly beautiful setting but a team that will help you every step of the way to give you what you need from your dream day. Unlike the 'conveyer belt' venue, you can really value and feel how this Castle is just yours. Yours only to enjoy and hold your special memories. Walton Castle is special, full of character, unique and so welcoming. If you want a wedding with a difference that is 100% personal and unique to you, well this is the venue for you. Thank you again to the wonderful Tracey and Neil for everything that they did for us leading up to and after the wedding.

    Walton Castle is a beautiful venue with incredible staff. It is also unique in the respect that there are very few limitations so we were able to shape a bespoke wedding day that was a perfect fit for us, and our guests.

    Franco's vision for the castle was infectious and our first viewing with him planted the seed of inspiration for our day. Tracey and Neil went above and beyond to help and guide us through the planning process, to prepare the castle for us and our guests and to ensure that everything ran smoothly on the day. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble and the service that they provided was personal, friendly and knowledgeable.

    We can't thank the team at Walton Castle enough for all that they did to ensure that we had the perfect day that we'd dreamed of - all we need now is another reason to host another event there!
