From the moment your wedding car pulls into the impressive driveway, you and your guests will be mesmerised by this stunning location. Hoghton Tower sits within the heart of Lancashire’s rich countryside and its truly breath-taking panoramic views.
Steeped in fascinating history, its early origins date back to circa 1115 and it was re-built in 1565 by Thomas Hoghton. This historic, fortified, hilltop manor house occupies a commanding position and lies mid-way between Preston and Blackburn, with magnificent views of Lancashire, the Lake District and North Wales.
Tilted sweeping lawns flank either side of the drive as you arrive at the front of the gatehouse, leading to the outer courtyard with its picturesque sandstone walls and cobbled floor. Climb the classical steps towards a romantic archway and the tranquil setting of the Inner Courtyard. From there you will enter a very special suite of oak panelled rooms, exclusively yours for your wedding day.
The King’s Hall sets the scene with its beautiful black and white chequered marbled floor and elegant oak bar area, extending into the North Entrance and the entry way into the Gardens. The adjacent oak panelled Billiard Room is perfect for indoor reception drinks, tea and coffee and can be used as a quiet seating area later in the day, with a warm and cosy open fire.
The magnificent Banqueting Hall, where King James I famously knighted the loin of beef ‘Sir Loin’, is perfect for your Civil Ceremony and Wedding Breakfast. By day 4,000 ancient panes of delicately coloured glass flood the room with natural light. By night the soft glow of light and roaring log fire completes the setting and ambience of your magical and unforgettable Wedding day.
The private gardens provide a stunning backdrop for the Wedding photographs of your dreams. Discover three separate, and very different walled gardens, each with their own distinctive character.
The Wilderness Garden, with its large lawn, herbaceous borders and topiary is the first garden you will step into with its parapet walls separating the garden and ancient woodland beyond. Wander into the Rose Garden, the most formal, yet intimate, of the three with its abundance of colourful and wonderfully scented roses, and lines of clipped yews. The next doorway leads you into the striking Ramparts Garden. Looking over the castellations, the horizon opens to a vast view of the gentle rolling countryside and the distant shimmer of the Irish Sea.

What our couples said:
The day was indescribable. Actually was one of the best days of our lives. Nearly every guest said Hoghton tower was the finest and most unique venue they have ever seen, and they, like us, have been to countless weddings all over the country, and Europe in our case. The team ran the day brilliantly, with pinpoint precision and never too obtrusive. That was also commented on by our guests. From my and my wife's perspective you massively helped to make it the day it was, both with all your patient help during the several months of preparation for the wedding, and the day itself. And for that we thank you very much.

The venue is just outstanding but you made it so special. You calmed Ian and I down when we got flustered and you re-arranged everything perfectly as the weather was terrible. I can not thank the team enough for making our wedding the best day of our lives
