Rushen Abbey

Type:Wedding Venue

Rushen Abbey

About

Almost 900 years ago in 1134, King Olaf I gave land for an Abbey and so became the wonder that is Rushen Abbey in the south of the island. Over the centuries since, Rushen Abbey has hosted many gatherings: from the congregation of the Cistercian Monks in the 1100s through to the tea dances and discos of the 20th century.  Nowadays, the medieval ruins still have the power to enchant, with large gardens complete with blossom trees and flowers that provide the perfect scenic location for picnics, gatherings and weddings. 

Weddings 

With picturesque gardens and ancient ruins, the historic Abbey is an Approved Place for Civil Ceremonies, either outdoors in the beautiful gardens or in the former Guest House that was used to house the visiting dignitaries to the Abbey in the early 13th century. The balance between the rich history of the Abbey's ruins and the beauty of the surrounding gardens creates the perfect setting for your fairytale wedding. 

The Guest House can accommodate 50 people and the various outdoor gardens are open to capacity depending on the chosen indoor contingency venue. Alternatively, situated adjacent to Rushen Abbey, the Abbey Restaurant is the perfect location for bespoke wedding receptions. Small wedding ceremonies and blessings may be held at the Abbey private function room by special request.
