A Serene and happy place, Milton Abbey stands in a heart-shaped confluence of valleys in the Dorset downs.
King Athelstan founded a monastery here more than a thousand years ago, in 936. The mansion house was built by William Chambers for the Earl of Dorchester in 1775. The interiors are by James Wyatt; the grounds were landscaped by Capability Brown.
The state rooms are licensed for civil weddings. Choose the one which best suits the number of guests you have.
You may wish to seal your marriage with a service of blessing in the beautiful abbey church, followed by drinks in the grounds with musicians to entertain before sitting down in the 500 year old Abbot's Hall for your wedding breakfast.
The building has a wonderfully warm, lived-in feel whilst at the same time being romantic and atmospheric. The suite of rooms includes a comfortable drawing room, a bar and plenty of room for dancing in the Kings' Room, which has good acoustics and an excellent dance floor.
