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 and 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, 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.

FAMILY CELEBRATIONS

Do you have a special birthday or wedding anniversary coming up? Just got engaged?

Why not wow your friends and family by having your special event in a Palace? Your guests will enjoy the breath taking scenery as they arrive over the drawbridge to see the palace in all its glory.

The medieval Undercroft is the perfect venue for parties of between 60 – 120 guests and no-one can fail to be amazed by the stunning setting. Welcome drinks served in the Entrance Hall and on the terrace, followed by dinner and dancing in the medieval Undercroft are all yours to enjoy.

Or for smaller parties have you considered The Bishop’s Table as your venue? Enjoy welcome drinks on the terrace with stunning views over the croquet lawn to the Palace, followed by dinner in The Bishop’s Table. A less formal, but equally impressive venue and perfect for parties of 20 – 40 guests.

CONFERENCES AND MEETINGS

Sometimes it’s just good to get out of the office…

If you need a venue for a conference, training day or meeting why not make it one of the most stunning around? With facilities to cater for between 20 – 100 guests we can offer you a memorable day or evening with plenty of opportunities to make it that bit different.

Why not make the most of your surroundings by including a guided walk of the grounds as part of your day? And after a long day’s work you can always let us take care of you and your guests by enjoying drinks on the terrace followed by dinner in the medieval Undercroft or in The Bishop’s Table.
