My partner & I attended a very special wedding here a week ago, it was amazing. The venue is beautifully styled and well laid out, the rooms and grounds are simply lovely. The atmosphere of the place is amazing, the staff who run it are completely professional friendly, kind and unobtrusive. Definitely a top venue, if we marry again we know where to book :) Well done Gildredge. 10/10 More...

Most incredible beautiful venue run by the sweetest, helpful and accommodating team. Everything was perfect! Couldn’t recommend enough.
Stunning venue that's been lovingly restored. Run by really friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful!
Beautiful venue. Staff are very nice and friendly. Was there for my cousin's wedding and the whole event went without a hitch! Thank you for helping create a wonderful day for her and her new husband! More...
Last Saturday was the wedding of one of my best friends, and what a wonderful venue they chose for the event in Gildredge Manor. The staff were all very helpful, polite, friendly and always had a smile. With beautiful grounds, everything so well kept and lovely big rooms across both floors, this really makes a stunning wedding venue. I'm not sure whether it was the venue or a different caterer, but the food was all very good and well presented too.The evening was very well organised, and we certainly enjoyed having a pool table to enjoy a few games on as well! Several different rooms and an outside area made it nice and easy to find somewhere a little quieter if need be. All in all, a lovely venue! More...
Stunning location! Great for weddings and functions and great for photoshoots.
Thank you so much for the most beautiful day, everything went so smoothly. All the staff were so lovely and polite. The venue speaks for itself it’s simply wonderful and beautiful. A big thanks to John who was super helpful and friendly. Our day was just perfect ❤️ More...
I've worked with many venues over the years with my mobile disco company Twilite and very few have come close to being as welcoming, friendly and hospitable as John and his team.
Lovely day - thank you. Great venue and friendly staff

Gildredge Manor is the most wonderful venue run by some of the most beautiful, kind-hearted people we've ever had the fortune to meet. I am so very glad that we chose the Manor as our wedding venue because it was all we ever could have wished for and more. The team that run it are second to none and an absolute credit to the Manor. I would 100% recommend it to anybody looking to book an event and I'm incredibly grateful to John, Jacqui, and all their team members for making our day so special and memorable for all the right reasons. We couldn't have done it without them. More...
We had the most wonderful evening last night at our charity ball. I would highly recommend Gildredge Manor as a venue. The property has been restored and decorated to a very High standard and is stunning. The staffing team were welcoming, helpful and happy to help with any queries and changes to our plans. I think all our guests felt so special. Huge thank you to John and his team. More...
Really nice place
We had our wedding reception here in March and it is simply stunning. We didn't have to worry about the weather because the inside of the manor is just gorgeous and everything you could ever want! So many of our guests couldn't believe how beautiful it was, truly Eastbourne'ss greatest hidden gem as I like to call it! John and his team were super helpful leading up to the day and made sure everything ran smoothly. Thank you! More...
This place is just fantastic Had the privilege of doing a photo shoot here If I was to ever think of getting married again (not likely) this would be the dream place locally
10/10! We cannot recommend this venue enough. It is a beautiful house set within amazing gardens. The various rooms meant our guests had somewhere to sit and chat if they didn't want to join in with the disco. It also gave us some fabulous photo opportunities, which our photographer took full advantage of. We had an amazing wedding here and everything went so smoothly thanks to John and the team at Gildredge Manor. We received such a personal service from John, who answered all our questions quickly and honestly. We were able to view the venue multiple times in the build up to the big day, which really helped with planning, especially as we had guests with limited mobility to consider. John completely understood what we wanted our wedding to be and could not have done more to make it a reality. More...
Wow, where do I start What a truly beautiful day myself and my husband had! The most stunning venue, beautiful grounds and absolutely fantastic staff, John you made our day so seamless and perfect! I cannot recommend this beautiful place enough. Thank you! Mr and Mrs Poolton More...
Went to a wedding reception here, a lovely venue right on Gildredge Park with a traditional / classy feel to the place. The wedding reception seemed to run smoothly without any obvious hick ups. Not too far from the town centre if your traveling in by train. More...
Lovely venue for a wedding
Lovingly and carefully brought back to its former glory - in fact, possibly even better! Mark & Emma have created a unique venue in this beautiful, historic Eastbourne building which oozes history from every restored floorboard, plaster moulding and stair rail. But, more than the fabric of the building, the decor and furniture create an ambience of relaxed luxury with a wide range of settings lending themselves to all kinds of purposes. The long gallery on the first floor gathers light from dawn to dusk while the dark panelled library on the ground floor yells ‘Victorian Gentlemen’s Club’ with its high-back leather chairs and soft sofas. The garden room is perfect for both a wedding ceremony or an evening party from where you can spill out in to the semi-formal gardens with a long G&T or Pimms. John and the team of staff are personable and faultlessly helpful - an event held here will be one you remember. More...
Fab venue food lovely ,staff excerlent .Beautiful gardens .No good for some one who cannot do stairs ,etc.lot of stairs leading up to the menu also. Wedding meals also served up stairs .But such a great venue ,should think in the summer it would be amazing . More...
My husband and I got married on the 28 December at Gildredge Manor. My wedding day was hands down the best day of my life and that was largely due to how beautiful and perfect the venue was. John, general manager, was so amazing on the day and made us all feel so relaxed the day before and also on the day. He is such a credit to the Gildredge team! The caterers, Food Glorious Food, were incredible on the day but also leading up our wedding day. The food was honestly the best food I have ever had! Our initial meeting with Emma and Mark, when we first decided on the venue also made us feel relaxed and excited knowing we were in such good hands. We had also so much fun in the evening with the entertainment provided by Elite DIscos, who were very professional and played excellent music all night! Every single guest commented on how perfect Gildredge Manor was, most even saying that it was the best venue they had ever been for a wedding. I highly recommend Gildredge Manor. It was perfect. Thank you, Love Mr and Mrs Reynolds x More...
Absolutely stunning venue and beautiful, helpful kind hearted staff x
The most Wonderful day of our lives!! There are no other words
We got married at Gildredge Manor a few weeks ago. We had the best day, thanks goes to the Gildredge team - they were great. From our initial meeting with Emma and Mark, who have lovingly restored the beautiful venue, the staff on the day, and special thanks to John who made the day run smoothly, we cannot fault it. The venue itself is stunning and the manor feels like your own for the day. All our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was and the staff were friendly and helpful. Thank you again from Mr and Mrs Hobbs More...

Beautiful setting. Lovely staff. Came here for a wedding last weekend. Slightly strange food. Had the soup to start with and it came with an onion Bhaji which I thought was weird. Was a bit spread out but if you were to hire such a large space that's to be expected. The only thing I can think of which isn't good is that there is no parking at the venue. Ok for the weekend as you can park on single yellow lines but imagine can be a bit of a mare if you are using during the week. Loved the little maze which the kids can play in More...
We got married here on Saturday and we can honestly say it was the most magical day of our lives. John and the team are brilliant and helped everything to run so smoothly, we would have been lost without that! We would highly recommend this venue, each of our guests loved it as well! Thank you so much guys for making our day so magical xx More...
An amazing day for my friends Craig and Reef....the staff....totally loving John.....nothing to much for them. Great manor, surroundings and setting. Excellent venue and thanx for making a beautiful day for two very special people and all their guests. Thanx xxx More...
This old manor house is in the middle of town, but bordered by parkland; on the lawns you would think you were on a country estate, not 5 minutes from the town center. The staff here are friendly and the there's a selection of rooms ranging from "quirky modern" to "Victorian wood panelling and chesterfield sofa".Parking is an issue: Leave the car and take a cab, you're close enough to the town centre that it's not a problem even at 2am. More...
Myself and Aretha had our wedding here yesterday. A fantastic day, superb venue and service. Excellent catering by Julia from Food Glorious Food and a big thanks to John and all the staff at Gildredge Manor for making our big day so very special
Approaching our 1st Anniversary and our memories of our day at Gildredge Manor are still very much alive! We had the most amazing experience from start to finish and couldn’t have been looked after any better. I would thoroughly recommend the entire experience. Nothing was too much trouble and we truly felt that we were the only people who ever got married there ! Beautiful, stylish, comfortable, stunning, classy ...... all of the above apply. Thanks to everyone who made our day so special. We will never forget all you did for us xxxx More...
The whole experience is amazing. The grounds are looked after, each room is a picture and caters for all. The staff are very polite, friendly and helpful. The whole ceremony and reception can be held there and it wouldn't mattered if it rained More...
Great wedding for my darling daughter.
Lovely venue and the staff are very welcoming.
Mark and Emma We cannot thank you enough for our amazing day. It was exactly how we had envisaged feeling. Our family and friends were superbly looked after by your "wedding ninjas" How on earth did they manage to have our every need attended to without us even asking? A fantastic team who all did you very proud. Who knew John was so good with a hula hoop? Jemma was outstanding as were the Food Glorious Food staff and your bar staff efficient and friendly. Your doorman was polite and made sure the DJ was looked after. The recommendations you gave us, Elite disco's and Sovereign Cakes did not disappoint. Reggie our dog had a great time during the afternoon so many thanks for allowing him to come. We felt overwhelmed with the love, kindness and emotion of the day and you certainly gave us lasting memories of a wedding day exactly as we had planned. Chilled, relaxed, inclusive, fun, and emotional...Just perfect!!! More...
Stunning wedding venue, superb staff.
Our hosts made all of us feel so special.

Had a truly wonderful day on Saturday 4th June at my son & his fiancée's wedding. Emma, Mark & Angie were wonderful - such nice people and they couldn't do enough to help. The venue is beautiful, decorated very elegantly and is the perfect place for a wedding. There are lots of nooks & crannies to escape to if you want to have a few quiet moments too, including a fabulous library. Because you get the whole venue for the weekend it makes for a very relaxing celebration as you aren't sharing it with anyone else. In addition, there is a lovely private garden area which we all made very good use of as the weather was absolutely gorgeous. This was an added bonus! The park surrounding the venue is also very pretty and is worth having a walk around. I don't think any other venue could have measured up to Gildredge Manor. It truly was a perfect day for all of us and the bride & groom want to do it all over again! More...
My husband and I recently got married at Gildridge manor and we couldn't be happier all of our guests were amazed by the Venue and the staff were fab Emma and mark were so helpful and when we felt overwhelmed they were there to help and gave us the support we needed and you would be crazy not to get married there

A building should be more than beautiful bricks and mortar, it can be a loving home, a place of peace or a vessel for happiness for a wedding. We couldn't have picked a more perfect place in which to hold our wedding. We are so greatful for the warmth that we and our guests received by Emma, Mark, Angie and the team. Our venue was not just a perfect setting which was exceptionally beautiful and intimate, that was just part of it for us. In addition, and most importantly, it exuded style without pretention, the love of a people for their premises and we felt this in every detail of this treasure of a building. We also fell in love with the presence of nature all around us, all of which just added to the comfortableness of our surroundings. We can't wait to book you again in the future to celebrate an anniversary! Love from Lourdes and David. More...

This venue is beautiful! We had such an amazing wedding day, made even more perfect by Emma & Mark and their team who worked tirelessly to make our day run so smoothly. We loved every minute and can't thank you enough for making it so very special. Nothing was too much trouble and you both found solutions to every little problem that occurred. You are both dedicated hosts with a genuine desire to help create the perfect event. Thank you very much from myself, Chris and our parents. xxxx More...
A wonderfully restored Manor House, set in beautiful gardens. An exceptional venue to host any occasion.

Attended our friends wedding last week and were blown away at how beautiful the venue is! It is a stunning place, lovingly restored and friendly welcoming owners and staff. So many beautiful rooms to have photographs taken and beautiful grounds too. More...
Beautiful venue and lovely hosts - Mark & Emma love what they do and it shows with a passion - the manor as been restored to its former glory and deserves nothing less - a gorgeous venue for any occasion - but as a wedding venue its just magical - warm relaxing and spacious - but enough intimate space to enjoy all your family and friends during the day. Just like being in the comfort of a large family home for your special day. Highly recommended. More...
Oh my goodness it is so lovely there xx
Could not be more impressed with this venue. I attended friends wedding yesterday and everything was perfect... All staff were friendly and chatty but blended into the background at the same time and each room was absolutely beautiful especially the ceremony/dining area. The outdoor area is lovely as well as being private and completely enclosed so there's no worry about wandering children. The food was beautiful - we were impressed by both the canapés and sit down dinner. Perfect venue for any wedding More...
Couldn't think of a better place to get married, beautiful place and great owners :) I can't wait
Amazing venue with great people, highly recommend
