- Venue Overview
Bignor Park is a stunning wedding venue that epitomises rural elegance in the heart of West Sussex.
The 1200 acre, privately owned estate is located in unspoilt surroundings at the foot of the magnificent South Downs. It is a majestic place, but with an understated style and quirky rugged charm.
