Hoghton Tower has been the home of the de Hoghton family since the Norman Conquest. Take the long drive to the 16th century and follow in the footsteps of William Shakespeare, Charles Dickens and King James I who, at a banquet held in his honour, famously knighted a loin of beef ‘Sir Loin’.
Imagine a 16th Century Manor House high on a hill, visited by King James I, William Shakespeare, J.M.W. Turner and Charles Dickens. Imagine joining that illustrious company by taking your first steps forward into marriage and history.
The Inner Courtyard provides an intimate setting for a musical quartet and canapé reception. The magnificent Banqueting Hall where James I knighted the loin of beef 'Sir Loin' is perfect for a 'Wedding Breakfast'. By day, the room enjoys natural light through four thousand panes of glass. By night, an open log fire and music from the Minstrels’ Gallery create a truly memorable experience. The dramatic King’s Hall is transformed into an elegant bar, coffee is served in a cosy ante room with impressive stone fireplace and club fender surround.
