The Red Lion Hotel, Salisbury, Wiltshire
This 800-year-old hotel wedding venue marries historic features with everything you would expect from a modern hotel. Accessed through impressive gates, the picturesque courtyard provides a fantastic backdrop for big-day photographs with its ancient statues and fountains, and a Virginia creeper vine with beautiful foliage covers the entire courtyard. Being just a five-minute walk from Salisbury Cathedral, this iconic building is another photographic backdrop option.
Ceremonies take place in the Marlborough Suite, the largest of the function rooms and one of the two rooms which make up the Courtyard Suite. It has its own access from the courtyard making it very private, away from activities in the main hotel. A lovely bright room with natural daylight, it also features its own bar and dancefloor. The Marlborough Suite can seat up to 60 guests for a wedding breakfast.
Adjacent to the Marlborough Suite is the Wellington Suite designed to open to the Courtyard Suite if needed creating a large banqueting area for an informal evening function for up to 120 guests. The Vine Restaurant is tastefully decorated in keeping with the charm and character of the older parts of the hotel with its unique and historic ambience. A sympathetic extension has added a beautiful conservatory and it can seat up to 80 guests for a wedding breakfast.
We love... that newlyweds get a complimentary stay in the luxurious Seamstress Suite or in a choice of the elegant four-poster bedrooms. Wedding party guests are also offered a discounted room rate.
