About Highcliffe Castle
Wedding venue in Dorset , set in impressive cliff-top grounds, Highcliffe Castle is a beautiful Grade 1 listed mansion
Surrounded by magnificent landscaped gardens with stunning coastal views, a gentle footpath leads down to the glorious sandy beach.
Providing a magical setting for your day, Highcliffe Castle, which was built in the 1830's by Lord Stuart de Rothesay, is now the most popular wedding venue in Dorset.
Inside the historic house, vows are taken in the Winter garden, a light and airy conservatory-style room, with three ceremony times to choose from. After your ceremony, the wedding party may enjoy photographs in the manicured Parterre and on the Vista, before the Bride and Groom make their way down the gently sloping coastal path for additional photograph opportunities on Highcliffe Castle Beach. Guests may also enjoy drinks and canapÃs within the grounds or in the charming Drawing Room.
Should you choose to continue your celebrations at Highcliffe Castle, wedding breakfasts are served in either the atmospheric State Dining Room, with exposed brick walls, or the majestic Great Hall with its 30ft high stained glass Jesse Window. Evening entertainment takes place in the Drawing Room with the adjacent Octagon bar providing an additional reception area.
