Events Venue to Hire in Hythe | Westenhanger Castle.

If you’re looking for an events venue to hire in Hythe, Westenhanger Castle is the idea venue for you.

Westenhanger Castle is a beautiful setting for any event. From weddings to corporate product launches, birthday parties to business conferences, our experienced and dedicated event management team is able to design your event your way.

The 14th Century moat and boundary walls wrap around the perfectly manicured lawns and provide protection to the Grade 1 listed Manor House that is built into the original fortification. Once inside the house, inglenook fireplaces, a minstrel’s gallery and the dovecote tower form the perfect setting for smaller gatherings of up to 100 people. Conferences, wedding ceremonies and receptions bring the setting to life.

Crossing the lawns to the Royal Marquee it is easy to see why Queen Elizabeth I often visited ‘her house at Westenhanger.’ See the ravens that have built their homes in the Lady Tower, toss a coin into the well that is fed from the East Stour headwater and make a wish. Relax to the sound of the  music that plays throughout the grounds and let your imagination run wild. Stand in the oak thatched framed pagoda and you feel the romance of past outdoor marriage ceremonies.

The Royal Marquee is a splendid permanent structure that boasts state of the art sound and lighting together with a fully fitted licensed bar, luxurious toilet facilities and a fully equipped kitchen capable of producing outstanding cuisine for banquets and wedding breakfasts for up to 250 guests.

Fully licensed for the solemnisation of civil marriages this is the perfect venue for a romantic day that will provide you and your guests with everlasting memories. A peaceful oasis of tranquillity nestling in the Kent Downs yet only minutes away from the M20 motorway, Westenhanger train station and the Channel Tunnel, very few country house venues are able to offer such a convenient location. Very few venues are as flexible as Westenhanger Castle. Your day your way, it’s not just a slogan, it’s at the heart of every event we host.

So, if you’re on the lookout for an events venue to hire in Hythe for almost any occasion, contact us now to arrange a personal viewing and to discuss your dreams.
