Stanbrook Abbey is a grand Victorian former monastery set in lush countryside nestled beneath the beautiful Malvern Hills. With its own chapel and banqueting hall, stunning Gothic Revival bell tower and even a private lake, it’s an impressive wedding venue with so much to offer.
Callow Great Hall
Through the dramatic sculpted stone cloisters you walk into The Callow Great Hall, an inspiring setting for your ceremony with its Gothic stained-glass windows and stunning vaulted ceiling. There is also a former chapel for smaller weddings or the Piano Lounge, a cosy lounge area for intimate ceremonies and gatherings, all of which are licensed for civil ceremonies.
Stanbrook Abbey is an unusual wedding venue as it has an impressive choice of 19 function rooms for a memorable wedding reception, in which you can celebrate with just 10 or up to 300 of your family and friends.
St Anne’s Hall
St Anne’s Hall is wonderful for smaller wedding receptions of up to 70 seated guests, with the additional use of the Library Bar & private garden.
