Weddings and civil ceremonies

Steeped in history, Bruce Castle is a magnificent historic building providing a unique setting for your special day.

Situated in the lush green 20-acre surroundings of Bruce Castle Park, we have a range of spaces licensed for wedding ceremonies and civil partnerships - from the beautiful Compton Gallery, which seats up to 80 guests, to the intimate and romantic Tudor Tower, one of London’s most unusual wedding venues.

Rooms available 

The 18th century rooms of the Compton Gallery, Coleraine Gallery and East Wing Gallery are registered for both wedding and civil partnership ceremonies, offering an atmospheric backdrop to your special day. Also registered is the Sir Rowland Hill Lecture Hall and our newly-restored Tudor Tower. 

Compton Gallery  

The spacious Compton Gallery is within the original 16th century part of the manor house, taking its name from the Tudor lord of the manor Sir William Compton. With fine 18th century marble chimneypieces at each end of the gallery, it is a light, airy and elegant setting for your ceremony. 

  • Capacity: 80 guests seated 

Sir Rowland Hill Hall  

Situated in the ground floor, the Sir Rowland Hill Hall was originally built as the Victorian wing to the old school at Bruce Castle. Spacious and well-lit by tall sash windows, it is ideal for larger gatherings of guests and is fully accessible. 

  • Capacity: 80 guests seated

East Wing Gallery  

With double aspect windows offering beautiful views out across the park, our Georgian East Wing Gallery has charming period features including a marble and tiled chimneypiece as a focal point and original oak boards. The Gallery can accommodate a variety of events, seated theatre-style or for smaller gatherings.   

  • Capacity: 50 guests seated 

Tudor Tower  

The Tudor Tower is our most unique and unusual setting for your ceremony. Separate from the main house, the Tower is one of the oldest parts of the estate. Providing a more intimate and romantic space, it is suitable for small gatherings. 

  • Capacity: Up to 12 seated 

Following refurbishment works on the Tudor Tower during the summer and autumn of 2021, there is now a second phase of works that could not be undertaken during the winter months due to the low temperatures. The works have now begun again in April 2022 and it is anticipated to last approximately 8 weeks.

Unfortunately the Tower is therefore not available for any ceremonies during this time. Once complete, this will be a wonderful and unique setting for intimate weddings once more.
