Our 19 acres of picturesque grounds are perfect backdrop for your wedding photographs and ideal for guests to enjoy post ceremony drinks.
Hitchin Priory is a charming 14th Century building, set in 19 acres of magnificent gardens and parkland nestling on the River Hiz.
Steeped in history dating back to 1317, Hitchin Priory was later frequented by Henry VIII and many original features remain, including cloisters, Monks Walk with its original beams and banqueting halls with grand fireplaces – it’s truly a unique venue for your dream wedding day.
Set in the historic market town of Hitchin, our venue has proved popular for both grand receptions and smaller intimate gatherings; from a simple soiree or civil partnership in our beautifully appointed reception rooms, to traditional Asian or white wedding celebrations in our Priory Marquee.
Licensed for Civil Ceremonies, from 20 to 100 people, Hitchin Priory can cater up to 80 guests at a formal wedding breakfast in the splendour of the Main House, with 200 guests for an evening reception, or up to 300 guests in the Marquee, which overlooks our stunning grounds.
Our 19 acres of picturesque grounds are also the perfect backdrop for your wedding photographs and ideal for guests to enjoy post ceremony drinks.
