Beautiful, intimate, historical venue.
The keep at Southsea Castle was perfect for our wedding ceremony. The room looked absolutely stunning thanks to the castles normal suppliers, I-do weddings and lizard events. The staff were always so happy to help and go above and beyond for us. They were brilliant for the whole day and in the build up, no job was too small and it really made the day so much easier! The castle itself is so striking, walking out of the keep after the ceremony onto the battlements was incredible. Cannot recommend enough!

Perfect Wedding
We had an amazing day at Southsea Castle. The staff were really helpful, the venue was beautiful, and there was so much included in the price. Our guests also absolutely loved it, and we couldn't recommend it more!

From start to finish it was the perfect day. Couldn’t have been happier with the dedication of Ruth and the rest of the team. Beautiful memories that will stay with us for ever.
