Pennsylvania Castle is a stunning clifftop mansion, built between 1797-1800 for John Penn, the last Governor of Portland and grandson of the founder of Pennsylvania, USA. Steeped in history, the impressive Grade II listed residence is set among four acres of beautifully landscaped gardens offering spectacular views of the Jurassic coastline. The gardens have been specifically designed to provide secluded, romantic retreats throughout the grounds for you to enjoy, as well as providing unique opportunities for your photographer. Whether you’re planning an intimate gathering of close friends and family, or a more grandiose affair, they can accommodate a variety of indoor and outdoor ceremonies. The Castle is available to hire exclusively for your perfect wedding day.
