Let there be love…

The perfect romantic setting at the foot of the South Downs

Folkington Manor is a stunning wedding venue with a very romantic history.

Licensed for civil ceremonies and receptions in a stunning location, Folkington Manor will make an elegant, picturesque backdrop to the special day.

Just as each couple is completely unique, Folkington provides a personal, bespoke service to ensure that each wedding is individually tailored. From initial enquiry through to the wedding day, Folkington works with you to develop your ideas, within your budget, so that your wedding is simply perfect.

The space at Folkington is very flexible. Ceremonies can be held in the beautiful Flint Halls which are licenced for civil marriages, partnership ceremonies and renewals of vows. Drinks receptions and wedding breakfasts can either be held inside the Flint Halls or in a marquee in the grounds. We encourage you to come and see the options available.

With beautiful curved beams, striking architecture and a wealth of natural light, the two historic Flint Halls are attractive flexible spaces that can be adapted to suit your needs. All ceremonies take place in the main Flint Hall which accommodates up to 140 seated guests. You can arrange the seating either for a small, intimate gathering or for larger numbers. The smaller Flint Hall offers a discreet space for your private discussions with the Registrar and can also be used for a drinks reception either before or after the ceremony.

Whilst we provide the venue, the ceremony at Folkington Manor must be booked in advance with Eastbourne Registry Office. This is a legal requirement and will ensure that a Registrar is available on your wedding date. A fee is payable to the Registry Office in addition to our venue hire.



Seated at tables in the main hall is 90.  If combined with the small hall the total seated capacity is 125.

Theatre style seating in main hall is 140.

Maximum number standing in both halls is 175.


The Gardens and Grounds


With 85 acres of parkland, woodlands and gardens, Folkington offers an idyllic setting for a garden party reception or a marquee in most seasons. Whether you choose a luxury themed marquee for 500 guests, an exotic Arabian tent or a simple tepee, your canvas will look stunning on our sweeping lawns against the backdrop of Folkington Manor and the South Downs.



A marquee in the grounds can accommodate any number from 100 to 1000+.  Our provider will supply not only a luxury marquee styled to your choice, but also everything else you may need from dance floors and lighting, to toilets and generators.

Please arrange an appointment so you can view the possibilities at Folkington and discuss your wedding plans with us.
