Hold your wedding anniversary celebration party at Hertford Castle

Whether you are celebrating your silver, golden or ruby wedding anniversary or simply marking another year of matrimonial bliss, historic Hertford Castle is the perfect venue to entertain and celebrate in style.

With stunning views of the garden and a relaxing atmosphere the 15th century grade 1 listed Castle and its grounds are the perfect setting for a memorable celebration. 

The Castle offers a choice of rooms where you can host a small, intimate gathering for close family and friends or choose to enjoy the entire Downshire Suite which can cater for 100 guests (60 seated.) To maintain our fantastic value, room hire starts from as little as £40 per hour.

You are welcome to arrange your own catering and can take the form of a finger buffet, take-away delivered to the premises or a three course gourmet meal. However, organising a party does not have to be hard work as our experienced team are here to guide and assist and we have a recommended caterer which you are free to use.

For a one-off corkage payment of just £300 you can provide all your own alcohol – which represents a saving of hundreds, or potentially thousands, of pounds depending on how thirsty your guests get!
