The Secret Chapel

The Secret Chapel

The Secret Chapel is a secluded hidden gem located on the roof of Colchester Castle…

…The beamed roof as well as the wooden and stoned structure of the space gives the room a rustic and romantic feel, and the natural daylight which pours through the roof and stained glass window only adds to the charisma of the space.

The Secret Chapel follows in the footsteps of the main Chapel located within the Museum, and is one of our most unique spaces to get married in Colchester. The organic and modest nature of the room is what appeals most to our guests, especially those looking for an intimate ceremony.

Details

The Chapel is located on the roof of the Castle…

…and is only accessible via the Grand Staircase. It is imperative you understand the restrictions of access when considering your guests and their mobility. Toilets are located on the ground floor.

As soon as we had a tour of the Castle and met with the team, we knew that we were going to have an unforgettable wedding ceremony. The staff were very responsive to any queries we had no matter how trivialOn the day, the venue looked beautiful and the staff were very clear guiding us through the ceremony. I can honestly say the Castle is a superb option for a wedding and worked very well with guests having access to the museum ahead of the ceremony. Please accept our huge thanks.
