Planning the wedding of the year in Somerset?

Come and see why an 800 year old Palace could be the perfect venue in which to hold your wedding reception.

The Bishop’s Palace has played host to lavish hospitality for over 800 years. This truly unique venue offers you access to a medieval vaulted Undercroft, the Palace Long Gallery, outdoor terrace and acres of stunning gardens to stroll across in the evening and which are perfect as a breath-taking backdrop to those all-important photographs to mark your special day.

With so much for you to think about we aim to make the planning as straightforward, smooth running and enjoyable as the day itself. After all, you should be concentrating on enjoying the excitement in the lead up to your big day and being the centre of attention.

Hire packages

We have put together a choice of hire packages so you can tailor your day to suit you and your guests. Have a look through our wedding brochure to inspire you and then talk to us about your requirements; we can provide a quote for you - prices start from £2500.

Be a King and Queen for the day and exclusively hire the Palace and gardens - it’s just like having your own stately home! Princes and Princesses can hire the Palace buildings for the day and enjoy the attention they receive from our garden visitors. Of you can just enjoy evening parties, lunches or canapés and drinks and have photographs taken in the beautiful gardens - the choice is yours to create the wedding day you want.

Don’t forget, we’re here before and after your wedding day so if you like the idea of a pre-wedding dinner or BBQ in the gardens, photo sessions or Sunday lunch the day after in The Bishop’s Table then let us know and we can help you arrange that too.
