hidden away within the south downs there is a sussex castle wedding venue like no other, for this my pretties is a greco-roman, gothic castellated beauty. once frequented by the likes of Oscar Wilde and Queen Victoria this awesome venue is now owned by Lady Colin Campbell
This Sussex Castle Wedding Venue is a truly breathtaking and unique 18th century building nestled within an 8 acre park within the South Downs National Park. A mix of Greco-Roman and Gothic castellated architecture this is a Grade I Listed beauty. The South Palladian (Greco-Roman) aspect is yellow brick and is thought to be a copy of the famous Villa Lante near Rome. The Gothic aspect is constructed of flint and sandstone, and it was designed to replicate Arundel Castle which lies approximately 5 miles to the west.
Castle Goring hasn’t always been a Sussex Castle wedding venue, it has an intriguing history and is understood to be the only large house in Sussex built by the Shelley family. Sir Bysshe Shelley, grandfather of the great romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, commissioned the property. Construction began in the 1790s and continued for a period of 15 years or more. The intention was that the property would be lived in by Percy Shelley, however, following his tragic death from drowning aged 29, this never materialised. The property remained in the Somerset family until sold to the famous authoress, socialite and television personality Lady Colin Campbell in 2014.
Castle Goring is proud to offer you a selection of locations in which to celebrate and party with your nearest and dearest. Whether you’d prefer the grandeur of the State Rooms in the main building, the magnificent Ceremonial Hall with its double height ceiling or on the South Lawns in a Marquee with Castle Goring as your back drop, it’s up to you and that’s how we like it.
