OVERVIEW

Enjoy your special day by holding your celebrant wedding or wedding reception at one of our wonderful venues at the University of Kent.

Our beautiful parkland campus has views over the city of Canterbury and its famous Cathedral providing a perfect backdrop for photos of your special day.

You and your guests can enjoy a drinks reception on one of our lawns admiring the view, take a stroll through our rose garden or light up the dance floor in our Darwin suite.

A venue perfect for you

At Kent we have flexible venues so you can style them to your bespoke tastes with various layout and décor options.  Whether you are looking for grand staircases, chandelier lighting or snug areas, we have it all. 

Turn your ideas into a reality

We're here to make your dream day come true. Your dedicated wedding co-ordinator will be there with you every step of the way on hand from the planning stages through to the day itself to work through all the details. 

Eat, drink and celebrate!

Every detail matters. Whatever your budget, we will ensure everything is perfect. Our expert team will take the pressure off you, so you can relax and enjoy every moment.

Everything is here

We are easily accessible by car or public transport and are only minutes away from the centre of Canterbury. Once you're here we have everything you could need - versatile venue space for small and large celebrations, en-suite B&B guest accommodation, a talented catering team, private bars, dance floor, state of the art AV system, plenty of free parking, and even a cinema and theatre!

Local contacts

Sit back and relax, we've got our little black book of trusted local partners that can help supply everything needed for your wedding.
