Rockingham Castle situated in Leicestershire

Rockingham Castle stands on an escarpment overlooking five counties, making it an exceptional location for a civil wedding ceremony or a wedding reception.


Civil wedding ceremonies & partnerships, with a maximum number of 100 guests (seated) can be held in the Great Hall and Panel Room between 10am and 6pm. If you are considering a church blessing, the beautiful Rockingham parish church, St Leonard's, stands in the castle grounds just a short walk away.
Should you wish to have more space, possibly for a bigger party after the ceremony, a marquee can be attached to Walker's House. This gives more room for dancing and effectively 'closes the square' of the Courtyard. The Castle and gardens are exclusively yours for the day; no other events take place simultaneously.

Special Day

Everyone wants their Wedding Day to be the most special day of their lives and the staff at Rockingham aspire to make that happen. From the moment you arrive until the moment you leave, they will endevour to help make your day run smoothly, so that you and your guests can relax and enjoy your wedding in this magical setting.


We organise your wedding or reception with the emphasis on arranging the day that you want and not following a pre-set programme – we believe flexibility is the key to achieving this.
