What are the South Downs?

The South Downs are a range of hills covering Hampshire, West Sussex and East Sussex. They stretch across 260 square miles across the south-eastern coastal counties of England from the Itchen Valley of Hampshire to Beachy Head near Eastbourne, East Sussex. The South Downs creates breathtaking hills with beautiful hidden gems across the area. There are so many wedding venues to choose from in the South Downs, where you can really create a romantic, elegant wedding with the wedding photos to match.

Why choose a venue in the South Downs?

Apart from the fact that you have amazing views, there are so many romantic themed Country and Manor House venues available for you to hire for your wedding day. Whether you are having a 3 day wedding or just the 1 day wedding you have the option to have your guests say at an incredible location.

Most venues will offer you exclusivity and only take on a certain amount of weddings per year so these venues will work very closely with you in ensuring you and your guests have full use of the venue.

Forget the real world whilst you're staying a weekend in the beautiful South England Countryside. Wake up to amazing sunrises, beautiful views of local animals and scenery. Not forgetting that gorgeous fresh crisp air you will get from being surrounded by nature. The opportunities are really endless when it comes to creating the wedding you want.
