Lewes Castle is one of the few venues in South East England where you can exchange your vows in the open air.
Standing proud in the heart of the South Downs Lewes Castle is a beautiful 1,000 year old romantic ruin with spectacular panoramic views of the Sussex countryside and old town of Lewes below.
Your wedding ceremony will take place under the ancient West Tower archway with beautiful rose bushes on either side. The traditional walk down the aisle is replaced by the zig-zag steps to The Keep, where up to 80 guests await in the Pleasure Garden under the shade of the old Lime Tree.
After your ceremony you can descend to the Gun Garden for drinks and photographs. The Gun Garden is also the perfect place for your bespoke wedding breakfast and reception where you can be joined by to 100 guests, celebrating, feasting and dancing the day away.
Available for weddings every day of the week between April and October, Lewes Castle with its breath taking beauty and unique history really is the perfect place to celebrate your special day.
We offer exceptional care for you and your guests and we will work with you every step of the way to ensure your wedding is planned to perfection. We offer a tempting selection of menus for the wedding breakfast with Anise Catering and we are always happy to create bespoke wedding menus to suit your personal tastes.
Lewes is a popular town for weddings with wonderful cobbled streets and historic buildings. The Castle stands tall and proud at the heart of the town and is easily accessible by car, bus and train from Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire, Kent and London. The town has many quaint hotels and amenities for guests traveling from afar making Lewes Castle the perfect site in the perfect place for your wedding.
