Bolton Castle is a magnificent Medieval fortress which is steeped in history and has a wonderful atmosphere, which is brought to life when people come to celebrate here.

Our spectacular rooms are licenced for Civil Ceremonies and Receptions and couples are able to entertain their guests as royalty once did. Wedding Couples who choose to hold their reception at Bolton have exclusive use of the Castle and are able to treat it as their own.

We hold ceremonies in our stunning Solar room which is south facing to get the best of the sunlight and has beautiful views. Wedding Breakfasts are held in our magnificent Great Chamber which would have once held great banquets.

We have several options for drinks receptions including our rustic old kitchen, partially ruined chapel, courtyard and medieval gardens.

Couples and their guests also have the freedom to explore the castle and grounds and there are endless wonderful photographic opportunities.

We have our own caterers who can cater for all tastes and budgets from hog roasts and cold buffets to sumptuous three course meals. Our caterers provide sample menus but are also able to work with couples to create their perfect menu for the big day.

We can accommodate up to 120 guests for the Ceremony and Wedding Breakfast and up to 240 for an evening reception.

We offer the extra special opportunity for you to to have our beautiful barn owl deliver your wedding rings, or entertain your guests with a falconry display or archery competition during your drinks reception.

We only ever have one wedding a week and we allow couples to decorate the Castle up to two days before the wedding meaning you can be happy everything is perfect before the big day.

We want your wedding day to be completely unique and special to you and will do everything we can to ensure you enjoy the whole planning process and achieve your dream wedding.
