It is hard to find a venue that rivals our romantic and unique venue, surrounded by stories of stately grandeur, royal romance, heroic deeds and infamous battles... 

Set in the heart of the picturesque city of Winchester are the remains of Winchester Castle – the perfect setting for a beautiful and grand wedding celebration. The romantic ruins, charming Queen Eleanors' Garden, and landmarks offer the perfect backdrop to create the most stunning memorable wedding and plenty of opportunities for gorgeous photographs. 

As a heritage charity, all income from weddings at The Great Hall goes back into the care and conservation of the site through Hampshire Cultural Trust. So by choosing us for your special day, you're also helping to support our charity, too! 

For more information about The Great Hall for your wedding, or to book a viewing, please email weddings@hampshireculturaltrust.org.uk or call 01256 639550.
