The Chapel

The Chapel

The Chapel is by far the most popular place our couples choose to exchange their vows…

…The high vaulted white ceilings give the space a romantic and peaceful charm, and the tinted natural daylight which pours through the stained windows only adds to the ethereal atmosphere of the room.

The Chapel is one of our most unique spaces to get married in Colchester. The clean, pure ambience of the room echoes the feel of a real Chapel and this is what appeals most to our guests.

Details

The Chapel is located on the top floor of the Castle…

…next door to the Charles Gray Room and can be accessed by the staircase. Alternatively we have two lifts in the Castle which stop at the top floor. Toilets are located on the ground floor. The Castle is fully accessible on the ground floor which is also where the disabled toilets are located. There is also Blue Badge parking nearby.

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 trivial.

On 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.
