About Amberley Castle
Nestled safe and secure behind a portcullis, Amberley Castle lies waiting to be discovered as a truly unique wedding venue.
On the doorstep of the South Downs National Park, with its green rolling pastures, open spaces, ancient woodlands and river valleys Amberley Castle has been used exclusively by royalty, politicians and VIPs throughout its history. 12 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens (roamed by a resident white peacock) set the scene and the castle is still completely enclosed by a high curtain wall, with the medieval stonework forming an evocative backdrop to your special day.
All 19 bedrooms at Amberley Castle are luxuriously appointed. Every room is unique in design and the interior design reflects the history of the castle and rooms are furnished with antiques and fine fabrics.
In the restaurant guests will find two stunning dining rooms: the magnificent Queen's Room with a barrel-vaulted ceiling dating back to the 12th century; and the Great Room, built in 1165 by Bishop Luffa of Chichester and featuring an open fireplace, oak flooring, tapestry and suits of armour. With its unique atmosphere it is the perfect setting to indulge in the spectacular cuisine created by a talented team of chefs.
Located less than 60 miles south west of London and only 22 miles from Brighton, Amberley Castle is the centre piece for one of the prettiest villages in the South Downs.
