Weddings & Civil Ceremonies

We offer a uniquely intimate and romantic space for a wedding ceremony and reception.
We are happy to offer exclusive hire of Severndroog Castle, including all three floors, as well as access to our viewing platform at the very top, where guests can enjoy spectacular views of the London skyline.
The maximum occupancy of the building is 55 people spread across 3 floors and each individual floor holds 28 people seated or approx. 40 standing. There will also be outside seating for use in good weather. The viewing platform is limited to 10 people at a time. Please be aware that due to the many stairs in the castle, access for people with poor mobility will be difficult. Catering arrangements need to made by the hirer separately and feel free to choose who you want.
We would be delighted to show you Severndroog so it would be brilliant if you could let us know when you would like to visit the Castle. The viewing platform, Lady James room and William James room are open to the public Thursday, Friday and Sunday.
This charming, wooden-floored room lined with arched windows is named for Lady James, who commissioned the building of Severndroog Castle, and still retains its original 18th century decoration. The domed ceiling is bordered with vines of golden leaves, and hung with a striking brass candle chandelier. This room is licensed for ceremonies and holds a maximum of 28 people seated and 40 standing.
The Lady James Room is available for hire outside of our opening hours (see the visitor info page).
More rustic than its female counterpart, the William James room is named after Commodore Sir William James, in whose memory the castle was constructed. With en-suite toilets, a wooden-beamed ceiling and arched windows that look out across the woodland, this room is particularly well-suited for children’s parties and community events.
The William James Room is available for hire outside of our opening hours (see the Visitor info page).
We welcome bookings for private group tours of Severndroog Castle. However, due to the limits on the number of people in the building at any time we encourage group visits to take place outside opening hours. The cost for a private tour is £5 per person with a minimum of 10 people and a maximum of 30 people split into two groups.
Severndroog Castle is also available for Corporate and Community Hire, as well as Film and Photo Shoots, and children's parties.
