Life Events at Michelham Priory

The stunning Michelham Priory estate in East Sussex is surrounded by the longest water-filled moat in England, encircling the enchanting priory on its very own island. Hidden away in the Cuckmere Valley the priory has a long established history of warmly welcoming and entertaining guests in stunning and peaceful surroundings. The beauty and tranquillity of Michelham Priory make it the perfect location for any life event.

We host a variety of life events at Michelham Priory from naming ceremonies and blessings to vow renewal ceremonies to wakes and memorial parties. Whatever your event we would be honoured to host your special day for you at Michelham Priory.

The Great Elizabethan Barn and the adjoining Moat Terrace with stunning views of the Priory mansion and grounds are available for hire from February to mid-December for up to 130 guests.

For smaller and more intimate ceremonies and blessings of up to 50 people, the Prior’s Chamber in Priory mansion, is available for your special event.
