The perfect venue

Special Occasions

Queen Elizabeth I, Charles Dickens, Winston Churchill, Mick Jagger... since my family, the Lyttons, came to Knebworth in 1490, nineteen generations ago, our home has entertained an extraordinary range of guests from all walks of life.

So close to London, and yet nestled in the rolling hills of the English Countryside, Knebworth House is the perfect place for entertaining colleagues, friends, family, loved ones - whether you have just one, or three hundred and seventy-five thousand, as Robbie Williams did!

My wife Martha and I very much hope you will add your name to our illustrious Guest Book and experience some of the magic of this beautiful, historic place. As my great-great-great-grandfather, Edward Bulwer Lytton, painted on the walls on our banqueting hall: "Welcome... to our hearth, where rooted friendships grow."
The Hon. Henry Lytton Cobbold

Imagine the wedding party arriving along the ancient chestnut avenue, a vista of 250 acres of deer park unfolding before you, and in the distance the turrets, heraldic beasts and towers of Knebworth House. Wedding ceremonies may be held in the Tithe Barns, Cobbold and Lytton Barns, Garden Gazebo within Knebworth House Gardens and Knebworth House itself.

The gardens at Knebworth House date back to the 1600's with the present design, landscaped in the Victorian and Edwardian times. They offer the beautiful setting for your treasured photographs with Knebworth House as a stunning backdrop. Our Garden Gazebo also offers a romantic venue for you to host your civil marriage ceremony within the landscaped gardens.

The 16th Century Tithe Barns offer a stunning venue for your wedding breakfast and evening party, allowing you to host your perfect wedding day all at one venue.

If you are looking to have an evening reception only, the contemporary Cobbold Barn is a great addition with its beautiful oak structure that opens onto a private garden area.
