Full Description
This is a unique location for your wedding reception, with a wonderful location on the water's edge. In an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Yacht Club is next to the Chichester Marina, in a rural location 3 miles from the centre of Chichester. With lawns, patios and decking, the gardens provide the perfect setting for your welcome drinks, and a lovely backdrop for those informal photographs of you and your guests. You can even arrive by sea - if the tide is right! The modern first floor function suite (with lift access) has light and airy rooms and a balcony overlooking the calm waters of Chichester Harbour, with views over surrounding woodlands to the South Downs. Decorate the room as you wish, with swagging, chair covers, table linen and decorations to suit your theme and colours. Seating up to 100 for the wedding breakfast, the room can accommodate up to 140 for your evening party. Your private bar can be either in the main room or in one of the smaller adjoining rooms, and there is a dance floor where your band or disco can set up. Free parking is available either next to the Club or within a few minutes' walk. In the local area you can find a wide selection of hotels, bed and breakfasts and self-catering accommodation. There are many other attractions in the area for those who wish to stay longer.

Happy couple married in June
June 2018
Sara & David Holder June 8th 2018
We got married and had our reception at the Chichester Yacht Club on the 8th of June 2018 - only 6 weeks after deciding that we were going to get married. We were the first wedding service to be held at the venue although there had been many receptions held there previously. Tom and Emily were amazing working on short notice whilst still providing us with everything we needed. They were very supportive and good to deal with. We had a reception by the waterside prior to dinner on the top deck. Food and ambiance was incredible. We would not have changed anything about our day. Incredible setting. great service and value for money
