Hitchin Priory is a charming 14th Century building, set in 19 acres of magnificent parkland nestling on the River Hiz.

Steeped in history dating back to 1317, Hitchin Priory was originally a Carmelite Monastery and was later patronised by Henry VIII and many original features still remain, including cloisters, Monks Walk with its original beams and large banqueting halls with grand fireplaces. Truly a stunning setting for your perfect wedding.

Our experienced wedding planner will be with you every step of the way, offering exceptional dedication to ensure your wishes are met. All-inclusive wedding packages are available for the House and Marquee for certain months of the year.

Hitchin Priory is licensed for civil ceremonies from 20 to 90 people conducted in the splendour of the Main House with elegantly decorated, beautifully appointed reception rooms for smaller weddings. The Delme Restaurant in the Main House can accommodate 80 people for a traditional Wedding Breakfast and up to 200 guests for your evening reception. The Hitchin Priory Marquee is available from May to September and can accommodate 200 guests for a Wedding Breakfast with 300 guests for an evening reception.

From canapés to your wedding breakfast to your evening buffet, we understand just how important food and drink is in uniting you and your guests to celebrate your most special occasion. Our Head chef has created a beautiful and exciting menu for you to enjoy, with fine local produce cooked with passion. Our chefs pride themselves on being ultimately flexible when creating a tailor-made menu to suit your specific requirements. Meeting our Chef at the planning stage to discuss your ideas and tastes.

Why not spend your first night as Mr and Mrs in our Bridal Suite with our compliments and invite your guests to stay too in one of our other 54 bedrooms so they can join you for breakfast the following morning to share special memories of the day.
