Details

This magnificent castle boasts a rich history, unrivalled luxury, and a spectacular backdrop, making it one of the finest wedding venues in the Lake District. With a wealth of impressive ceremony and reception spaces and stunning period features, this venue effortlessly provides the grandeur that your wedding day deserves.

Appleby Castle has a lengthy and vibrant past, with parts of the site dating back to the 12th century. Couples can now walk the same path as renowned historic figures and be a part of the story of this incredible castle. The square stone keep, the tapestry-adorned walls and the impressive Great Hall provide remarkable backdrops for a truly unique wedding day.

When it comes to exchanging your vows, choose between the elegant, oak-panelled Ceremony Room, which offers a grand setting with views over the valley below, or the enchanting Garden Rotunda. Here you can exchange your vows in the great outdoors, taking in your idyllic surroundings while your guests are seated around you on the lawns.

After the ceremony, a drinks reception is the perfect way to celebrate the beginning of your new married life together. The Lower Hall and outside terrace provide wonderful spots to raise a glass with your guests, taking in the authentic setting and beautiful scenery.

For an unforgettable wedding breakfast, The Great Hall provides a remarkable setting full of history and grandeur. Enjoy a feast worthy of royalty, provided by expert wedding caterers, Campbell & Rowley, on dramatic banqueting tables.
Appleby Castle boasts a stay of the utmost luxury, offering a number of exquisite bedrooms throughout the castle. Many of the stunning rooms are home to ornate four-poster beds and boast lots of period features for a traditional stay, while the thoughtfully renovated servant's quarters provide light and comfortable accommodation for your friends and family.
