Highcliffe Castle

Be king and queen for the day, at this fairytale venue. From its clifftop location, Highcliffe Castle overlooks the Isle of Wight and boasts an unspoilt beach just a few steps away – perfect for barefoot photos on the sand post-vows.

The Grade I listed castle is a dream venue, surrounded by 14 acres of woodland and landscaped gardens, so there’s something for everyone. Licensed for ceremonies for up to 120 people in the light, bright Wintergarden, you can take your pick from the Great Hall or State Dining Room for the wedding breakfast and host an evening celebration in the Drawing Room.

Did you know? The castle was once the home of Mr Selfridge and has played host to various dignitaries and royalty throughout its history.
