Your Wedding Reception

Your Wedding Reception at Highcliffe Castle

When it comes to planning your perfect romantic reception, Highcliffe Castle can offer you two unique choices. Both reflect the timeless style you would expect from a Grade 1 listed castle, but each is a little different.

The Great Hall

You can dine in the majestic Great Hall with its stunning 30 foot high Jesse Window, creating a spectacular backdrop for your first meal as a married couple. The Great Hall can seat up to 110 guests.

The Dining Room

Alternatively, your Wedding Breakfast can be served in the atmospheric State Dining Room, with exposed brickwork and full length windows allowing you to take in the breathtaking views of the Isle of Wight Needles. The State Dining Room can seat up to 80 guests. You are of course welcome to invite additional evening guests.

Your Evening

The Drawing Room

Dance into the night in our atmospheric Drawing Room with a band or DJ of your choice. Guests can also remain in the dining area which doubles up as a more relaxing lounge throughout your evening reception.

The Castle Bar

The Castle Bar will open at 4pm to serve your guests throughout the evening. The bar accepts card or cash and will close 15 minutes before the end of your hire. This is usually 11pm but you do have the option to extend to midnight for an additional fee should you wish. Your party will have a lively hub in the Castle Bar as it links whichever dining area you have chosen to use with the Drawing Room.
