About Westenhanger Castle

Welcome to The Castle Westenhanger in Kent, a luxury castle wedding venue nestled in 14 acres of magnificent countryside. Romantic and regal with breathtaking ruins to be found at every turn, The Castle Westenhanger is your medieval fairytale dream.

The Castle Westenhanger is a scheduled ancient monument with a Grade I listed Manor House and 14 acres of magnificent grounds. It enjoys a rich history and has been connected to many notable figures throughout history, including Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I.

The Castle Westenhanger is nestled in the village of Westenhanger between Ashford and Folkestone near the South Kent Coast. It is approximately three miles from the town of Hythe, eight miles from Folkestone, 11 miles from Ashford, 15 miles from Dover, and 66 miles from London, with excellent transport links via the M20 (Junction 11).

Enjoy a choice of three stunning ceremony options, from the purpose-built thatched gazebo on the castle lawn, to their two indoor ceremony areas located in the castle. After the ceremony, toast your nuptials in their private bar before feasting on an unforgettable wedding breakfast in the marquee, with its views of the castle ruins and manor house.

You’ll love the endless photo opportunities that can be found at The Castle Westenhanger, including the ornate medieval dovecote lit up by candlelight. Once the sun sets over the castle, enjoy a dramatic firework display above the ruins of Rosamond’s Tower before dancing the night away with your guests.

You’ll be supported by a dedicated wedding coordinator who will be by your side throughout your planning journey, and you’ll also enjoy access to an exclusive online wedding planning tool.
