The perfect venue for your very special day

In the heart of Leicestershire, Whatton House & Gardens is the most romantic location for your wedding day. Used as a hospital during the war, caring for wartime mothers and their babies, Whatton House is now a cherished family home.

This historic home is enveloped by beautiful rolling parkland and its exquisite 15 acre gardens which provide the magical setting for your wedding day.

Your wedding day

Our garden marquee site, located in the depths of our incredible English garden, is a beautiful setting for a wedding breakfast and evening party.

We will be there to help create your own memories to share with your family and friends. Imagine celebrating your wedding day in the secluded gardens of a much-loved family home, surrounded by vibrant flowers.


Please note: We do not currently hold a Ceremony License at Whatton House.


However, we can offer you some wonderful alternatives! For a traditional church wedding the beautiful All Saints Church in Long Whatton is only a mile and a half down the road. If a church wedding is not for you, there are several lovely venues around who can provide a Civil Ceremony.

It’s not just weddings that can be hosted at Whatton. Have an idea for another event you would like to hold? Maybe it’s a special birthday party, or large family celebration. Or how about holding your next corporate event at Whatton? A great place for an outdoor team building day.
