Country House Wedding Venues Hire Guide

Calling all history buffs, architecture aficionados and romantics at heart – manor houses in England are absolutely gorgeous! Is there anything more swoon-worthy than a grand London manor house? They’ve had a troubled history over the last century, with some families being forced to sell them off or donate them to the National Trust. Even so, there are still many stately homes and historic houses left in and around the city! These are perfect for a country house wedding in a convenient location.

Country houses and historic homes are ideal for themed weddings! Are you organising a wedding inspired by your favourite book, movie or TV series? Perhaps you’re planning a Downton Abbey-themed party or maybe you’re throwing a Jane Austen-inspired reception. Looking for a place that’ll fit the theme perfectly? We’ve got good news for you – a charming London country house venue is much easier to find than you might think.

FAQs about Country House Wedding Venues in London

What are the costs of hiring country house wedding venues in London?

Country house wedding venues in London can cost anywhere from £2,000 to £6,000+. It depends on the size of your guest list, whether or not you want to host an outdoor ceremony, and what kind of food and entertainment you’d like to have at your event. If you’re planning on having a small wedding with 100 guests or fewer, then you might be able to get away with spending around £2,000-£$2,500 on your wedding venue. However, if you plan on having more than 100 guests and want an outdoor ceremony, then expect to pay at least £4,000 or more. (All data from Tagvenue.)

Which parts of London have the best country house wedding venues?

From the southern edge of the city to its northernmost reaches, there are hundreds of country house venues in London that are just waiting to host your special day. The most accessible country house wedding venues in London are scattered throughout The City, Covent Garden and Soho. However, most of them are located in the suburbs, countryside and neighbouring towns outside of London, such as Sutton, Croydon and Kingston upon Thames. As a general rule of thumb, if you're looking for a country house venue that's not far from the city centre, head east. If you're looking for more of an overall rural feel, head west.

What are some of the best country house wedding venues in London?

  • Hedsor House. Situated in the beautiful Bray, this house has been lovingly built to create a luxurious setting for your special day. This countryside venue is a place of quiet and calm in stark contrast to the bustling city. Hedsor House has been carefully split across 5 rooms, which can be used for your ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening celebrations. The ballroom is perfect for standing receptions, while the dining and drawing rooms are ideal for seated dinners. The garden is the perfect place to host a procession or first dance, while the boudoir can be used as a bar area. With its perfect mix of grandeur and intimacy, Hedsor House can cater weddings for up to 250 standing guests.
  • Winchester House. This venue boasts exclusive gardens and private dining rooms, so you can enjoy an outdoor ceremony or a seated wedding dinner in a stunning location. Winchester House is a stunning historic venue with views over the River Thames, so your guests will be able to marvel at the beauty of this incredible place while they're enjoying their meals and dancing. The venue can accommodate up to 100 guests. It is available for exclusive hire throughout the year, making it ideal for any wedding date you have in mind.
  • Cambridge Cottage. If you're looking for a venue that's elegant, sophisticated, and unique, look no further than Cambridge Cottage. Once the home of royalty, this stately mansion is now a beautiful event space that can be yours for your special day. Located in the heart of Kew Gardens, Cambridge Cottage has its own private garden and is surrounded by botanical artwork. You can choose to hold your civil ceremony in the Drawing Room or Gallery, both of which have been restored to their former glory and boast incredible views of the Duke's Garden. You can invite up to 80 guests to join you there for drinks with further 40 guests as part of your after-dinner party. But that's not all! If you want an outdoor wedding—which we think would be amazing—you can exchange your vows through the French doors of the Drawing Room with your guests looking on from the Duke's Garden.

Susan R.
Booked Full Venue Hire at Garden Rooftop
We booked the LSQ Rooftop rather than the Garden Rooftop so this review relates to that venue. The location is outstanding and the view is brilliant, our US team were really wowed. The team couldn't have been more helpful both in organising the event and during the evening ensuring it all ran smoothly.

Booked Basement Bar at Coin Laundry
Fantastic venue and night celebrating my 30th at Coin Laundry! I had lots of fun, and had so many compliments on the food and the feel of the venue! The DJ was organised through the venue too and he was great etc. There was a slight mix up with times on the day but the staff were accommodating with allowing us to use the space and we was still able to get things set up well even so. Thank you all!

Booked Function Room at the Venue at The Old Street Gallery
Pacha went above and beyond to help me. I was heavily pregnant during the time of booking so she video-called me to ensure I still was able to view the property. On the day of the event she was such a friendly welcoming host and her and her staff member were a great support to me and my team. I plan to book out the venue for the rest of the year. Great venue and even greater venue manager! Very happy!

Booked Meeting Room 1 at Canada Water Theatre
Really great venue for our away day. We had everything we needed in the room, including laptop, projector and screen, flipchart, whiteboard and pens. Everything was really easy to use. The meeting room was clean and modern and had great views over the water. The venue manager, Lea, was really responsive and helpful by email and made the process of booking very easy. I would definitely recommend Canada Water Theatre as a great venue that is good value and easily accessible.
