Full Description
Welcome to The Reading Room, a lovingly restored 17th century historic building located in the heart of the beautiful North Norfolk countryside. With its dramatic vaulted ceiling and chandelier, this bespoke venue will capture both your heart and imagination and is exclusively yours for the day. Easily accessible, we are located close to the stunning North Norfolk Coast, an area of outstanding natural beauty, just 15 miles from the centre of Norwich. The Reading Room is an exclusive use venue that provides a unique atmosphere and intimacy for your special day. Licenced for Weddings and Civil partnership ceremonies, the venue seats 80 guests inside or in the garden as part of a duo ceremony, with additional guests welcome for the evening. We are ideally situated next to the ancient Church of St Ethelbert’s, and just a stone’s throw from many other gorgeous Norfolk Churches. Our magnificent walled gardens, surround The Reading Room with an abundance of old English flowers rich with wildlife. A meandering path through the woods leads to a pergola walkway covered in fragrant roses and honeysuckle. The lawns provide a perfect space for welcome drinks and canapes followed by fun garden games or just to sit and relax in the afternoon sun. As a family run wedding venue, we are passionate about creating your 'happily ever after'. We work closely with our selected Norfolk caterers who will create a bespoke menu from table feasts, afternoon teas and street food to formal dining, delivering a first-class service. The Reading Room creates a magical setting for your wedding day, with enchanting gardens and a truly special building full of history and character.
