The royal wedding is just around the corner, and as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle prepare to tie-the-knot at Windsor Castle, here at venuedirectory.com, we’ve been left feeling inspired (and rather jealous) by the big day. If a castle is good enough for royalty, then we want to allow our clients the same luxury for hosting their corporate events. Add a sense of grandeur to your next meeting by holding it in one of the country’s finest historic venues:
Farnham Castle - Farnham, Surrey
Almost 900 years old, Farnham Castle is one of the last great medieval venues in England. Choose between 11 impressive meeting spaces, each with natural daylight and spectacular views of the grounds. Make your event residential and stay in one of the castle’s cosy bedrooms, or take your event outdoors to make the most of the extensive grounds
Thornbury Castle - Bristol, Bristol
Immerse yourself in years of English history at Thornbury Castle with a dinner for 22 in Barons Sitting Room or a theatre style meeting for 75 delegates in Tudor Hall. You can even make your meeting a residential one, and stay in one of the castle’s 27 spectacular bedrooms.
