location : location : location

Situated in the heart of Amesbury, Wiltshire, close to Salisbury and Andover and a stone's throw from the A303, this historic, Grade II Listed period property, built in 1923 in the Queen Anne style, and set in three acres of attractive formal gardens and parkland, boasts beautiful, original, ornate features and will, without doubt, provide the perfect backdrop for your big day, not to mention all your photos - picture memories to last a lifetime!

For weddings, Antrobus House is hired on an exclusive use basis and affording couples, their family and friends privacy, it has two large function rooms; The Edmund Hall on the ground floor and The Lady Florence Room on the first floor – both rooms measure 8m x 13.5m.

ceremonies

Since 1 January 2020, Antrobus House is an approved licensed wedding venue, meaning couples may choose to be legally married here, as well as celebrate their reception here.  Alternatively couples may prefer to be legally married at a local register office and have a celebrant-led non-legal ceremony here - the choice is yours!

*ceremony fees are charged for and paid separately to either Wiltshire Council Registration Team (for a legal ceremony) or a celebrant (non-legal ceremonies), upon booking them direct. Our fee quoted above is for venue hire only.

the edmund hall

The attractive Edmund Hall on the ground floor is where your wedding breakfast takes place.  Beautifully decorated in a neutral palette, it's a versatile space you can make your own.  With a purpose-built stage for live music or a DJ, and with double doors leading to both the front lawn and the rear terrace, this room is ideal for celebrating during the day and partying into the evening. 

We can accommodate up to 100 guests for a seated meal and up to 150 guests for an evening reception.

the lady florence room

The charming Lady Florence Room on the first floor, with stylish windows allowing the light to flood in, is where our ceremonies take place. 

The Lady Florence Room is only accessible via stairs - we do not have a lift.

the front lawn

Grand entrances don't get much better than this! Once you arrive at Antrobus House, step out of your wedding car, walk up the front steps and through our ornate wrought iron gates and up the garden path towards the house.  

The double-lawned garden at the front of the house is a spacious area you can use as you wish.  Not only is a great for photos, with the facade of Antrobus House your perfect backdrop, it can also be used for 'al fresco' drinks and canape receptions, BBQs/Hogroasts and garden games. It's the perfect chill out spot, where family and friends can gather together, take a seat on the lawn and catch up.

The lawn is also big enough to accommodate a bouncy castle and even a small marquee.

the rear lawn

We also have extensive lawns with beautiful mature trees beyond the bowling green, offering plenty more photo opportunities - Antrobus House and its grounds are much bigger than you might think!

the edmund terrace

Our attractive Edmund Terrace at the rear of the House, overlooking the bowling green is another great place for guests to sit and relax and enjoy the surroundings. With it conveniently being just off the Edmund Hall, it's just a small hop away from the Dance Floor!

If you're planning a more "relaxed" wedding and are considering street-food style caterers, they can easily be accommodated next to the terrace.  We've welcomed Fish & Chip vans, Wood--Fired Pizza trailers, Pie & Mash vans to Antrobus House in the past and it's always worked really well.
