Burgh Island is dedicated to your exclusive wedding, celebrations and parties. For over 15 years we have been organizing ceremonies and parties for couples looking for something unusual but sophisticated, classically art deco but personal, intimate and glamorous.
We naturally welcome same-sex couples and have hosted many wedding ceremonies where the couple have more recently married after first celebrating a civil partnership with us.
This is undoubtedly one of the most romantic locations in England: a hotel set on a private tidal island, surrounded by sea, sunshine and drama, and at low tide, accessible by our fleet of 4WD vehicles over the virgin beach. When the tide is in, convey your party to us in style on our unique Sea Tractor!
Uncountable romances have begun and flourished here since the hotel was opened in 1929: Edward Windsor and Wallis Simpson being one of the most notorious couples. In 2012 and 2014, Burgh Island was voted “most romantic hotel in Britain” by readers of The Good Hotel Guide, in 2014 we were shortlisted for the Mills and Boon Special Awards while in 2016 we were awarded “Editor’s Choice” for “Romantic Hotel” by the GHG.
Exclusive use of the Hotel for your wedding includes up to 25 rooms (50 guests) for dinner, bed and breakfast. We have space in our ballroom for an additional 20 non-resident guests.
