The Venue

Set on the cliffs of Dorset’s dramatic coastline, Pennsylvania Castle Estate provides the perfect backdrop for events and weddings throughout the year.

The setting

Pennsylvania Castle Estate’s clifftop setting provides charming views of Church Ope Cove and UNESCO World Heritage Jurassic Coastline. The neo-gothic design of the Castle effortlessly combines intimacy, elegance and grandeur, beautifully refurbished with a modern look and feel. Moving through the grounds over sweeping manicured lawns, the beautiful Italian Garden & romantic English Rose Garden provide a secluded area to enjoy the best of the evening sunshine for after dinner cocktails and garden games.

The Venue

Pennsylvania Castle Estate is available on an exclusive basis offering you an intimate and relaxed backdrop for your wedding or event. Our events team will work with you to create your perfect day, providing a genuinely personalised experience with a seamless level of attention to detail. Your wedding can be as individual as you are, relaxed or extravagant, traditional, or extraordinary.

There are a number of licensed ceremony spaces, a mixture of indoor and outdoor, all with spectacular sea views. Dining is an important part of your wedding or event, where you choose to dine will depend on your guest numbers and the time of year. Our stunning Dining Room will seat up to 60 guests all year round. During the summer months the Orangery is in place seating up to 100. The team at Pennsylvania Castle Estate have cultivated great relationships with an outstanding selection of caterers who, between them, offer a fantastic range of options.
