A Unique Place

Usk Castle is a unique and beautiful place, steeped in history, which makes it a romantic and special location for a wedding, civil ceremony or alternative service. We host weddings and receptions from April to September each year. All proceeds from weddings go toward the maintenance of Usk Castle for future generations to enjoy, so in booking your wedding at Usk Castle, you are helping preserve an ancient monument.

Licenced Areas

Either affirm your vows in one of our five licenced areas, or hire the castle ward which makes a beautiful location for a wedding reception of your choice.

There are five licenced locations for marriage: 

  • The Drum Tower Gazebo
  • The North Tower
  • The Gatehouse
  • The Tithe Barn
  • The Porch

We can now offer open air ceremonies and we are also fully licensed for same-sex marriages.

From a Humanist celebration in the place of your choice, or a blessing in the open-air Chapel of St. George, we are happy to accommodate your requests where we can for a maximum of up to 160 guests.

What We Provide

We provide the venue, water, power and loos if required, and you then have complete flexibility to arrange your day, hiring registrar, marquees, caterers and decorating the venue as required.

Cruck Frame Hall

New for 2022 is the Cruck Frame Hall, made with timber from our own woods, within the Banqueting hall, with a canvas roof, available for additional space outside of your marquee, for dance floor space, for example.

For more information and our price list click here. Viewings are held at 10.30am on Saturdays subject to availability. If you would like to arrange a viewing email info@uskcastle.com.

Prospective couples can view a video of Usk Castle here to help plan and visualise your day. We also recommend you read our Ts & Cs prior to booking.

You can check availability on our calendar. Bear in mind that we do not book up every weekend with weddings as Usk Castle is a private family home, and we have a limit to the number of events we can host. We also need to allow rest weekends for grass to recover between events.
