The perfect venue for your reception or wedding party

Make your wedding reception or party memorable by holding it in the grounds of this fabulous historic Georgian Mill, perched on the banks of the River Test and surrounded by beautiful Hampshire countryside. What better backdrop for stunning photographs to provide perfect memories?

The Mill is well placed as a location from all points. It’s easily accessible from the A34, M4, M3 and A303, and is an hour by train from London Waterloo.

Venue hire includes use of the Silk Mill’s grounds plus facilities (water, electricity and toilets). Evening hire will have exclusive use of the site up to midnight.

There’s space for you to set up a marquee for up to 120 guests and include a bar and dance floor plus a separate catering tent. You can:

  • have full access to the Mill Welcome Building
  • have limited access for the wedding couple to the Mill
  • bring your own alcohol – we do not charge corkage!

Facility fee for hire of grounds only: £1,800 (incl VAT)

You’re welcome to use your own florist, caterer and musicians, but if you haven’t already chosen them you might want to consider these local suppliers.
