Honeysuckle and Castle are delighted to offer The Riding School at Calke Abbey, exclusively for your wedding day.

This no corkage* charge wedding venue is a rustic blank canvas set amongst over 600 acres of Derbyshire parkland where deer and sheep roam free, this 18th Century building is steeped in history.

High set windows create an inviting space, whilst white drapes create more intimate areas for your guests to enjoy. With gorgeous exposed brickwork, antique characteristics and an old rowing boat resting in the large oak beams, The Riding School is without a doubt the perfect backdrop to your big day.

*For all future bookings

Licensed for civil ceremonies and partnerships of up to 240 guests, The Riding School is an idyllic setting to say ‘I Do’.

Whether you’re celebrating with a full day at Calke Abbey or moving on to a reception elsewhere, a dedicated member of the Honeysuckle & Castle team will be on hand throughout the day to help make it a magical and memorable experience.
