Venue Overview

The memories of your special day will remain with you forever and it is important to ensure that every detail is perfect with no compromises! There are few venues that can offer such magic memories, bespoke service and superb photo opportunities as Battle Abbey School. It's also probably more affordable than you think...

The School offers the distinct benefit of offering a complete wedding day in one location with a truly flexible space in which to stage your ceremony, reception drinks, wedding breakfast and evening event and with enough space to avoid the need for turning round rooms with guests in occupation. Every wedding we hold is unique, entirely bespoke for you (on average we only hold about 17 weddings per year) so don't hold back when discussing your ideas with us! With an elegant, sacred feeling space for ceremonies and drinks served on the top terrace overlooking one of the most famous battlefields in England and surrounded by over 1000 years of history, Battle Abbey really has the wow factor you're looking for.

We can seat up to 120 guests in the fantastic wood panelled Dukes Library for your wedding breakfast and accommodate up to 250 for the evening entertainment. We don't have many restrictions but due to the size of the venue, we recommend a minimum of 75 guests for the day.

All our Canapés, Starters, Main and Deserts are prepared on site using, where possible fresh, local ingredients.

The cost to hold a wedding reception or ceremony and reception at Battle Abbey School ranges from £3,000 (midweek) to £5,000 (Saturday) and will include exclusive use of the whole school site and surrounding outdoor space. You will also have full access the day before to dress the venue as required.

Pricing for drinks and food will depend entirely on your choices. We can lay on anything from a barbeque or hog roast up to a five course sit down formal meal. If there's something you particularly want just ask! All our weddings are bespoke and we pride ourselves on being super flexible. We really aren't pricey as you might expect either. With average Saturday prices coming in at £100 per head (and plenty of ways to bring this figure down) and nearer to £80 a head midweek why not contact us to find out how much your dream Abbey wedding might cost? The pictures don't do the venue justice so please feel free to drop by and see for yourself.
