Experts at hosting weddings for over 70 years, West Lodge Park has the highest AA quality rating of any four-star hotel in North London.

There is a varied array of rooms in which you can host your perfect day, and you will be invited to select the one that feels best for you.

Centuries ago, the area on which West Lodge Park is based was 'The Enfield Chase' - a well-stocked deer-park belonging to the Kings and Queens of England, and particularly popular with Elizabeth I. Three hunting lodges were built - probably in the 1400s - to provide shelter for the royal gamekeepers working at the chase. They were named South Lodge, East Lodge and West Lodge.

Henry Coventry lived at the property for a time, and during his residence was visited by John Evelyn, who wrote about the lodge. By 1838, however, the chase ceased to exist and West Lodge was rebuilt, which is where the foundations of today's hotel come from. However, the panelling around the main staircase has been dated to the 1600s, and is probably from the old hunting lodge.

The rebuilt West Lodge was a private family house until 1924, apart from a brief spell as a rest home for WWI nurses in 1916-17. It was opened as a hotel in 1924, then was purchased in 1945 by the Beales family - under whose management it remains today.

    We just wanted to say thank you so much for making our celebrations on 7th October so memorable. We had such warm comments from our guests about the venue and especially the room layout, which you organised. Thanks also to Matthew and his team on the day. They couldn't have been more helpful.
