This historic hotel provides the most wonderful backdrop for an intimate wedding, celebrated with those closest to you. Built in 1865, our grand building is full of stunning Victorian character – a grand Portland stone staircase, marble tiled floors and ornate chandeliers, make for beautiful wedding photographs.

Tie the knot in our elegant River Room, overlooking the famous view of the River Thames. Share the moment with up to thirty of your nearest and dearest before sipping Champagne and sampling canapés on your very own private terrace. Our stunning Terrace Room is the setting for your first meal of married life, shared with up to thirty guests. Exquisite food and service make for an unforgettable dining experience.

Celebrate into the evening with up to fifty evening guests, and take the party into our unique Cellars. Dance the night away with a DJ or band – the choice is yours.
