Reception Hire

Charlton House is over 400 years old and one of the finest examples of Jacobean domestic architecture in the country. Built between 1607 and 1612, originally for Prince Henry the son of King James I, the house has also been the residence of East India Merchants, Prime Ministers and Baronets, and enjoys a fascinating history of intrigue and romance.

Four ornate rooms, long sweeping driveway, beautiful walled gardens, Charlton House is as versatile as it is unique for your wedding celebration. Our beautiful wedding halls and reception areas can accommodate up to 150 guests and are rich in period detail, featuring original fireplaces, wood panelling and intricate strapwork ceilings.

Greeted with a glass of champagne and escorted through to the beautiful walled gardens for your reception drinks and photographs, capturing happy memories for you and your guests. After drinks move onto your wedding breakfast served by our expert caterers, before dancing the night away with your friends and family.
