Known as the house that plays with the rules, Charlton Hall is the kind of wedding venue that will create lasting memories. The space is made up of a ceremony hall, the Looking Glass, three reception rooms – Library, Breakfast Room and Drawing Room – and two bars.

Inside, you’ll also find a speakeasy in the underground vaults, which give couples the freedom and space to curate a completely bespoke wedding from top to bottom.

Whether you’re dream day involves relaxing with friends, or partying hard from the moment you step onto the estate, you’ll be immediately enamoured by the unbelievable views that surround the venue.

Better yet, on arrival, you’ll be greeted by an award-winning team who will help you feel relaxed and make your dreams become a reality.

In Charlton Hall’s ceremony hall, fairy lights adorn stone walls and gleam from the beams over art deco flooring.  A standalone converted stable block, the ceremony hall can also be reached via an attractive courtyard, leading from the main hall where guests can gather ahead.

The main entertaining space at Charlton Hall is held within the newly constructed ‘Looking Glass’. This multi-purpose glass building houses your wedding breakfast and evening entertainment, with capacity for 140 day guests and 200 evening guests.

Due to its glass structure and surroundings, the Looking Glass frames the most beautiful scenic views across the estate by day and at night, while its smart ceiling turns into a canopy of stars on a dark night, giving the impression that you’re dancing under starlight.

At Charlton Hall, you’ll also experience an unrivalled dining experience that takes you on a culinary journey of delicious flavours, from locally-sourced produce to truly spectacular service.

Menus are creatively crafted by the talented in-house chefs, using the finest ingredients from the venue’s doorstep, as well as seasonal British produce prepared with a unique Charlton Hall twist.

Every inch of Charlton Hall offers an abundance of personality. The six large en-suite bedrooms hosted within the Hall, and further four in the adjacent Stable and Farm Cottages, are no different – each reflects the cheeky character of their namesake.

On-site, the venue currently accommodate 22 guests, with some very exciting plans to boost capacity for 2020 and 2021!
