Glynde Place is situated at the top of the village of Glynde and has commanding views over the Weald and Sussex Downs. The house was built in 1569 by William and Anne Morley, to replace the previous existing family home, from local flint, chalk and Caen stone. Glynde Place has passed from William and Anne, through three intermarried families, to the current owners. Today it is the family home of Francis and Caroline Hampden and their three children.
Marquee space to fit small and large events
St Mary’s church is just next door to Glynde
Formal rooms available for licensed ceremonies
Glynde Place is the perfect backdrop for couples looking for a touch of old school glamour combined with classic elegance.
The venue offers use of the stunning Elizabethan House for part of the celebrations, including the impressive Gallery and Long Hall, and then its beautiful grounds for the wedding breakfast and party. The grounds are completely private with unparalleled views of the South Downs.
The delightful Palladian-style St Mary’s Church is just next door to the Glynde Place for those wanting a religious ceremony. However, Glynde Place has a wedding licence which enables couples to actually get married in the historic house itself, if a civil ceremony is preferred.
Glynde Place also offers use of its newly restored Coach House for more intimate weddings or for those requiring additional space.
For couples looking for a very relaxed style of wedding without use of the historic house, Glynde Place also has The Old Cricket Pitch site which is deep in the grounds of the estate. This is an idyllic spot for couples desiring a marquee-style wedding with camping for an agreed number.
