For nearly seven centuries this characterful home has played host to lavish entertaining, chivalrous acts and notable historic events. Today Penshurst Place, with its beautiful unique rooms, glorious gardens and exquisite hospitality, opens its doors to couples wishing to celebrate the start of their married lives together. We understand that every couple is unique and every wedding individual.
