Durlston Castle provides a showstopping backdrop to events
Set on the top of an impressive headland jutting out into the sea, surrounded on three sides by high cliffs and bordered by mature woodland on the other, Durlston Castle is set within Durlston Country Park National Nature Reserve. The clifftop paradise boasts stunning views, wildlife and wildflowers.
The Victorian Castle is a unique building with stone turrets, a terracotta balustrade around the copper-roofed Belvedere room and exclusive terraces. The building has a long stone wall running along its spine, upon which are numerous stone inscriptions and carved maps, all built in the 1880s.
The glass-sided Belvedere room with stunning views of Old Harry Rocks, Isle of Wight and the English Channel sits on the top of the recently renovated Victorian Castle. The exquisite location for intimate weddings of 50 people is perfect for the vows followed by drinks receptions on the exclusive roof terrace. For larger celebrations with 120, the Gallery has a stunning glass front overlooking the sea, a rear stone wall and wooden flooring. It’s perfect for ceremonies and wedding breakfasts surrounded by loved ones.
For those after al fresco celebrations, the Amphitheatre is a grassy outdoor space with seating looking out across the sea. Adjacent to the Castle is the Great Globe, an extraordinary feature that provides a beautiful backdrop for wedding pictures.
