Abbey Buildings – Weddings & Civil Partnerships

Turn your special day into an even more delightful occasion by holding it at the historic and picturesque Abbey Buildings. The Friends of Abingdon have been granted a licence for Wedding and Civil Partnership ceremonies to be held in these wonderful riverside medieval buildings. Couples can now choose whether to hold their ceremony, their reception, or both in any part of the buildings except the Undercroft.


The medieval Abbey’s spacious Long Gallery and gardens provide a truly romantic setting that both you and your guests will love. You can download our 12-page Wedding Brochure by clicking its image on the right. NOTE: the brochure is large – about 10 MBytes – so it may take some time to download if you have a slow connection.

We strongly recommend that you make an appointment with the Curator to come and see the venue for yourself. Although the Buildings can be a little too cold for weddings from October-April, we would consider requests for a short ceremony at any time of year. For details of rates and availability, or for answers to any other questions you may have, please contact the Abbey Buildings Curator using any of the methods below:
