Exquisite weddings in a historical Georgian wedding venue

Exquisite weddings in a historical Georgian wedding venue

What was once a school for Greenwich Hospital, is now a sought-after wedding venue and hotel in the heart of Greenwich. Devonport House rests elegantly at the foot of Greenwich Park, and a stone’s throw from the River Thames. The Georgian mansion was built in the early 18th century with picturesque red brick walls and soaring white columns. 

Like most of the era’s architecture, Devonport House is pleasingly symmetrical and well proportioned. The impressive façade complements a generous stretch of manicured lawns, where many couples opt to host pre-dinner drinks receptions or casual barbecues on warm summer evenings. The charming wedding venue is a welcoming oasis of calm located only minutes from the buzz of London’s city centre, making Devonport House a popular wedding venue choice for nature loving couples.

Devonport House local information

Greenwich is a unique area being so close to central London yet so removed from the noise and bustle that a city brings. When visiting Greenwich, you feel as though you have stumbled into a charming British village filled with heavenly smelling corner cafes and daily craft and fresh produce markets. Greenwich is essentially built around the River Thames, with the main maritime attractions, such as the Cutty Sark, and outing-worthy areas all sprinkled along the river’s banks, allowing for lots of time spent gazing over the sparkling water at the towering skyline of Canary Wharf. Greenwich Park is a peaceful retreat where one can take an energising walk up the hill to the Royal Observatory to view the Greenwich Meridian or look out on a spectacular view of London’s skyline. Only minutes from Devonport House, one can access the Cutty Sark DLR Tube Station (0.2 miles) within a 5-minute walk and Greenwich Train Station (0.4 miles) within 8 minutes.

Greenwich is a culturally rich area and offers a large variety of places of worship and churches for wedding ceremonies. Although all four rooms at Devonport House are licenced for wedding ceremonies, couples occasionally opt to marry at a separate venue and then continue the wedding celebrations at the hotel. Churches nearby include St Alfege Church (0.1 miles, 3 minute walk), St Paul’s Church (1.2 miles, 7 minute drive), St Joseph’s Catholic Church (1.2 miles, 6 minute drive) and Grace Church Greenwich (0.2 miles, 4 minute walk)
