The Summerhouse

Romantic landscapes and stunning parkland views

Nestled within the award-winning Castle Park and approached along a romantic walkway of London Plane trees, the Summer House was built in the 18th Century by Scottish architect Charles Gray to replicate a Roman Temple.

With stunning views across the Park’s magnificent gardens and lakes, this picturesque venue provides the most secluded of locations for your wedding ceremony, reception and photographs.

The Park is renowned for its magnificent gardens which are meticulously maintained throughout the year. Marquees have long been popular to host wedding receptions in the park, part of which is now licensed to host your outdoor civil ceremony.

The perfect venue for...
  • Weddings of up to 80 guests
  • Outside Ceremony
  • Countryside feel

What you need to know

Although the Summer House is located in a relatively private part of the park, it remains a public space and we are unable to prevent people walking past.  English weather can often be unpredictable, so should the weather prove inclement on your special day we can ensure you and your guests can relocate to the Town Hall’s Council Chamber.
