The Abbot's Hall

The original ‘main room’ in the residency of the Abbot, the Abbot’s Hall has remained essentially unchanged over the last eight hundred years. It boasts high ceilings, oak beams, oak floors, huge windows providing lots of natural light, and a stunning feature fireplace dating back to the days of Henry V. It can hold 100 guests for your wedding ceremony.

The Monks' Refectory

With features dating back to 1162, the Monks’ Refectory is a truly spectacular stone barn wedding ceremony venue. It can host up to 190 guests for a ceremony, boasts a Minstrels’ Gallery for any musical accompaniment that you might choose, and enjoys views of both the cloister gardens and the front lawns, including the River Thame.

The Walled Garden

The Walled Garden sits on the site of the old Abbey itself – in fact parts of the walls that make up the Walled Garden are in fact parts of the ruins of the Abbey, which was dissolved by Henry VIII after the formation of the Church of England. The ‘nook’ in the wall in which the registrars and register sit allow you and your guests to enjoy a truly al fresco wedding ceremony.
