Appleby Castle has a lengthy and vibrant past, with parts of the site dating back to the 12th century.

The square stone keep, the tapestry-adorned walls and the impressive Great Hall provide remarkable backdrops for a truly unique wedding day.

Here you can exchange your vows in the great outdoors, taking in your idyllic surroundings while your guests are seated around you on the lawns. After the ceremony, a drinks reception is the perfect way to celebrate the beginning of your new married life together. The Lower Hall and outside terrace provide wonderful spots to raise a glass with your guests, taking in the authentic setting and beautiful scenery. For an unforgettable wedding breakfast, The Great Hall provides a remarkable setting full of history and grandeur. Enjoy a feast worthy of royalty, provided by expert wedding caterers, Campbell & Rowley, on dramatic banqueting tables.
