Located just south of Lichfield, Swinfen Hall is a magnificent Grade II* listed Manor House set in 100 acres of rolling parkland, complete with ornamental gardens and a 45-acre deer park. The present Hall was built in 1757 and retains many period features, from the balustraded minstrel’s gallery to original stained glass windows, guaranteeing you a fabulous backdrop for your wedding album no matter the British weather. It is available for exclusive use, and is easily accessible from the M6 and M42 and by helicopters – which can be landed on its grounds.
CHOICE OF ROOMS
Civil weddings take place in one of three stunning oak-panelled rooms, all with their own individual character and charm. The smallest has a maximum seating of 30 guests making it perfect for intimate weddings, while the largest can accommodate 160 of your friends and family.
