Your Day, Your Castle, Exclusively Yours


Lympne Castle offers you the opportunity to be transported back to a medieval fairytale dream. This beautiful Grade I building dating back to the 13th century will provide the most perfect setting for your wedding, civil partnership, retaking marriage vows, private functions or corporate events. We believe you shouldn't have to share your Big Day with anyone but family and friends.

Enjoy the freedom to make the day truly your own with exclusive use of the Castle and grounds. Set high on a hill overlooking the English channel and the Romney Marsh, the castle has arguably one of the best views in Kent. Inside the Castle, within the Great Hall with its panelling, roof beams and medieval windows, you can have the beauty and romance of times past but with modern comfortable facilities. Lympne Castle offers magic, fairytale, and romance, the chance to be kings and queens for the day and to follow in the footsteps of real monarchs who may once have walked these halls.

Lympne Castle has two rooms licensed for civil ceremonies, The Great Hall & The West Wing Drawing Room. Garden ceremonies are also available in the Summer house between April to September. Hold your wedding breakfast in either The Great Hall or our marquee. Our chefs have compiled extensive menus for you to choose from complimented by our House and Castle cellar collection wine lists. Our highly experienced Event manager are available to assist you in the planning of your special day and are with you on the day to make sure everything is perfect.
