The Museum as a Wedding Venue

The Weald & Downland Living Museum is a unique location for your wedding, set in the heart of the South Downs National Park.

At the Museum, over 50 historic buildings set in a beautiful 19th century park provide an outstanding backdrop for your great day, with plenty of idyllic settings for your photographs.

The Museum currently has two buildings licensed for civil wedding ceremonies:

  • The Downland Gridshell, an innovative modern timber building, can accommodate ceremonies for up to 180 people.
  • Upper Hall, a licensed ceremony room that can seat up to 50 people.
