4. Silchester House
This stunning Victorian country house sits on the border between Berkshire and Hampshire, providing a breathtaking rural escape for couples who are seeking something unique. Silchester House with its well-preserved Roman walls and renowned clock tower, is certainly one of a kind and can provide your perfect ceremony and reception within the light and airy Music Room. If the weather permits, couples can tie the knot under the elegant Terrace Gazebo and make the most of what the English summer has to offer, while enjoying the idyllic gardens and impressive views.
We couldn’t resist giving you one extra venue! This stunning barn setting is slightly out of Berkshire but so pretty that we just had to include it.
5. Clock Barn
Just over the Hampshire border lies Clock Barn, a truly enchanting and rustic setting for a special celebration. The striking thatched clock tower leads to the Main Barn which is a truly amazing space for both ceremonies and receptions. After you've tied the knot, enjoy your celebratory drinks in the tranquil gardens before wining and dining with your friends and family, and dancing the night away as newlyweds. It really is a wonderful wedding venue that has to be seen to appreciate how special it is.
