Submarines, treehouses, temples and space museums: Britain's most unusual and unique wedding venues

Finding a good wedding venue is sometimes easier said than done. If the problem isn’t with the size or kicking-out time or extortionate cost of bog-standard chicken, it’s often that it all just feels a little… samey. You’ve seen one hotel function room, you’ve seen them all, right?

Help is at hand. If you’re looking for something a little more unusual, something unique, something that reflects both of your personalities or interests (or burning passion for dinosaurs maybe), you’ve come to the right place.

Find here a hand-picked selection of British wedding venues that bypass tradition in favour of a confetti-littered road less travelled. Aquariums, space museums, underground caves, temples, submarines, haunted castles, subterranean lakes, iconic landmarks and TV studios – we’ve got them all, including a room stuffed full of whisky.

Take a look at our gallery below for some wedding venue inspiration, and if you end up getting hitched in an Edwardian swimming pool, you know who to thank.

Please note: Some venues are reception only, please check with the venue's events team
