Your dream castle wedding is closer than you think

There really is no need to cross the Channel to France or to trek to the wilds of Scotland to find your dream castle wedding. Not when the most romantic of wedding venues, The Castle Westenhanger, stands proudly right here in the Garden of England, minutes from the coastal towns of Hythe and Folkestone.

Dream weddings come true at
The Castle Westenhanger, near Hythe, Kent


Set within 14 acres of truly magnificent Kent countryside, The Castle Westenhanger is the castle wedding venue you’ve always dreamed of. You and your guests will enjoy exclusive use of the Manor House, the castle turrets and the stunning marquee, as well as the beautiful grounds, throughout the day and into the night.

If you are having your ceremony as well as your reception with us, choose between our beautiful thatched oak-framed gazebo on the main lawn or the intimacy of the majestic Manor House, perfect for winter weddings with its roaring inglenook fireplace.

Your reception will take place in the exquisite marquee with its sweeping drapes, magnificent chandeliers and bespoke starlit ceiling above the spacious dance floor where you will take your first dance as a married couple.

Your wedding will create another chapter in the castle’s long history


The Castle Westenhanger belongs to a group of early quadrangular castles and manor houses that were strengthened in response to threats of attack from France during the 14th Century. It is a Scheduled Ancient Monument with a Grade 1 listed house, underlining both its national and historic importance. We look forward to you joining us in writing another chapter in its long and illustrious history: your wedding day.
