Enjoy peace and privacy, elegance and beauty, all in the heart of Chester. Flanked by ancient Roman ruins and uninterrupted river views, Old Palace Chester’s city-centre position is second to none.
This magnificent building is currently undergoing a dramatic transformation to become the premier exclusive use wedding venue in Cheshire. Once open, you can become part of its history and celebrate your special day in the most exceptional way.
Start your day in the inviting Morning Room overlooking the venue entrance and see your guests arrive before descending your private staircase to exchange your vows. The River Room boasts a long aisle and cathedral-like atmosphere that suit the occasion perfectly. For a grand entrance, arrive by boat and wander through the private gardens before saying ‘I do’.
Old Palace Chester provides plenty of space to celebrate. Enjoy canapés and cocktails on the Garden Terrace, elevated above the riverfront, mingle in the lovingly-restored reception rooms at the front of the palace and enjoy a mouth-watering feast in the grand Ballroom. The Galloping Gourmet chefs will create a wedding breakfast tailored entirely to you, so you can be sure of the most amazing meal on your wedding day.
The Palace suite is simply breathtaking and the perfect place to retire to after the festivities. It’s spacious, stylish and luxurious and offers glorious views over the river to help you relax and unwind. With a number of suites throughout the house that offer the utmost comfort, your guests won’t miss out either, and you can continue the celebrations over breakfast in the morning for the perfect end to the perfect wedding.
