Highcliffe Castle


Grade 1 Listed cliff top mansion house, on the Dorset/New Forest border available for civil ceremonies, receptions, banquets or events. Spectacular views to Isle of Wight, gardens and beach for photography, local catering & dedicated events team.

Excellent facilities include: Spectacular views to Isle of Wight, gardens and beach ideal for creative wedding photography, bespoke local catering & dedicated events team. Built in an architectural style appropriately called 'Romantic and Picturesque', spectacular Highcliffe Castle provides a stunning cliff top location for your wedding.

The Grade I listed clifftop castle specialises in both civil ceremonies and receptions. You can hold your ceremony in the beautiful Winter garden, seating 100 guests and then head off to one of the local venues for your reception, alternatively take advantage of our wonderful State Dining Room, which seats 80 guests.

Weddings can be held on any day of the week throughout the year, with several time options to choose from. Following your ceremony why not enjoy champagne and canapés in the grounds while your photographs are taken. The beautiful sandy beach, just a gentle stroll away, provides additional photo opportunities. Bookings are now being taken for 2009 & 10, contact the Events Team on 01425 278807 for details or visit www.highcliffecastle.co.uk.

General: We have various prints and paintings of the castle available which make great gifts. For guests we stock single use cameras, films, batteries and in place of confetti -wedding bubbles are available.

Parking: We have a reserved area for wedding guests, however they do need to pay and display and the price is currently £1.60 for up to 2 hours. We will supply each couple with 12 parking permits to distribute to their principle guests and photographer.

Hotel Policies: We regret that confetti or rice, including the biodegradable varieties (e.g. rose petals, rice paper) is not permitted in the grounds. Wedding bubbles make a good alternative and are available from the castle gift shop.

Banqueting Capacity: Weddings are generally conducted at 11am, 1pm and 3.30pm and may be held any day of the week. The 11am and 1pm slots are designed for couples wishing to hold their reception elsewhere and the 3.30pm slot allows couples the opportunity after their ceremony for further celebrations at the castle.

With any ceremony we are able to serve champagne or bucks fizz and canapés whilst photography is taking place, prices are from £3.50 per head.

Wedding Packages: Several arrangements of fresh flowers, in neutral creams and greens, are provided in the Winter garden within the costs. You may wish to have additional flowers supplied by our floral artist starting from £45 per display.
