Hertford Castle is a Grade I listed Gatehouse originally built on the site of a Norman Castle and nestled in the heart of Hertfordshire. Standing proud in beautiful gardens alongside the river Lea, it is enclosed by its original stone and flint turreted walls, echoing the historic architecture.
With the historic castle as a dramatic backdrop, couples and their guests can discover the enchanting moat and rose gardens, reflective waters of the river and the ancient trees – there’s no end of photography spots.
For ceremonies, couples can choose from the following: The Salisbury Room, with beautiful chandeliers and grand sash windows overlook the manicured gardens, which can host up to 60 guests. The Mayors Parlour, with sparkling chandeliers, a huge ornate fireplace and a vista overlooking the formal lawn, can host up 24.
Optimising the light, the beautiful Victorian Conservatory brings the outside in allowing you to enjoy the view of the Castle Gardens with up to 20 guests and as it is heated, the space can be enjoyed all year round.
Private dining after the nuptials can be taken within multiple impressive rooms for receptions that epitomise the castle’s rich history and with magnificent views over the gardens. Combining flexibility and affordability there’s the choice of The Mayors Parlour (20), the Robing Room (16) and a maximum of 50 guests can be seated within the relaxed Salisbury Room.
Exclusively yours, the venue only commits to hosting one wedding a day, and has a low corkage fee and couples have the choice and freedom to choose their own caterers and suppliers.
