Tabley House description

Wedding Venues / Museum / Historic Venue / Funerals and Wakes

Medium (1-150)

The Tabley House Collection is housed in the finest Palladian mansion in Cheshire. The estate was home to the Leicester family for 700 years, until the mid-1970’s. Their legacy includes some of the finest art, furniture and books that money could buy, as well as a fascinating family history.

Tabley House Collection welcomes enquiries regarding wedding ceremonies, individual and group visitors, and is renowned for its knowledgeable and friendly volunteers.

Tabley House is a licenced venue for Weddings of up to 100 guests, providing grand yet intimate surroundings for that special day. Many couples choose to marry in the long gallery at Tabley, with canapes and bubbly served in the Portico, spilling out onto the lawn with unspoiled views around them. We also have a chapel connected to the house where couples can have blessings and the all important 'confetti shot'

We do not have the space for sit down receptions.

The state rooms, Chapel and tea rooms, have also been used for several film and TV productions. Looking to the south of the house there are views of unspoiled parkland and mere, not even a pylon in site!

Funerals and wakes can be held in the chapel and historic tea room.

Our historic team room seats 40 people for adhoc meetings, general public (while open Thurs-Sunday April - end of Oct) and can otherwise be hired for other events.

Here are just a few of the comments from our visitors :

‘What a wonderful place, fantastic paintings, and very informative guides.’

‘A fascinating visit, packed with lots of historical intrigue.’

‘Lovely atmosphere, and lots to see,’
