Warwickshire: an administrative and historical county in central England, in the Midlands region. As an administrative and geographic unit, the county’s history dates back to the 10th century, with the historic county town of Warwick (seat) located roughly in the middle.
The present administrative county of Warwickshire covers an area smaller and somewhat different from the historic county, and consists of a largely rural landscape of woods, fields and pastures, with a few large towns. It includes five boroughs: Stratford-on-Avon, Warwick and the boroughs of North Warwickshire, Nuneaton, Bedworth and Rugby.
Why marry in Warwickshire?
Warwickshire is a region located in the West Midlands, in the center of England. It’s rich in history and perhaps best known for being the birthplace of the amazing William Shakespeare, but also for creating rugby (in rugby city at least!)
It borders six other counties including Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire and includes to the south a small portion of the Cotswolds.
Having moved to the Midlands a little over three years ago from London, I’ve been able to experience Warwickshire farm weddings, barn weddings and stately homes, and more intimate celebrations at the local town hall with dinner at a nearby restaurant. Below are some of the best memorable wedding venues Warwickshire.
Here are the most recommended Wedding Venues Warwickshire
Lord Leicester Warwick Hospital
A historic gem in the heart of Warwick. This place cannot be missed if you are looking for something really special and different.
The hospital offers a very unique and picturesque atmosphere of intimacy.
Civic ceremonies usually take place in the 600-year-old, wood-framed Guildhall. This gorgeous room sleeps up to 70 people, and its antique feel and understated charm make it an unforgettable place. A civil ceremony can be held in the old great hall, which can seat up to 100 guests under its magnificent Spanish oak ceiling. The Guildhall Drink Reception will be held again in case of rain and bad weather.
Longbourne Barn and Kenneton area
This is a true hidden gem in the stunning Warwickshire countryside. Longbourn Estate Barn is a beautiful historic building that was formerly part of the Compton Verney estate.
The magnificent barn has stone floors, vaulted ceilings and massive wooden doors.
Nestled in the middle of 100 acres of South Warwickshire countryside, it offers a wonderfully secluded idyllic setting. This wedding venue gives you a great deal of flexibility in preparation time and the suppliers you can bring in to take care of your wedding day.
Ashton lodge country house near rugby
This is a return gem of a wedding venue available in the Warwickshire countryside. Under the new ownership, this venue has been completely renovated with 14 beautiful on-site bedrooms that can sleep up to 36 guests and a separate breakfast room in the Coach house the next morning. Built in the Edwardian era and set in 3 acres of countryside, this place has a unique feature.
How to Choose the Best Warwickshire Restaurants?
When you take the time to choose, more often than not, you are rewarded with a great tasting experience built around the ambiance of the restaurant and the behavior of the staff serving you.
When choosing the best Warwickshire restaurants, one faces many considerations. Word of mouth or reviews are helpful. They give you an idea of what a restaurant should look like. Especially from people who have visited this place many times.
The location of the restaurant
Choose a restaurant that you can walk to. When you want to have a good time, driving then can be a real problem. So, get a nearby restaurant where you can walk easily or where it is easy to get a taxi. Another $50 for a taxi to go to a restaurant adds unnecessary expenses
Sometimes the restaurant may be beautiful but the decor is not to the taste. It shakes your senses. Go somewhere where you enjoy the atmosphere.
Do they play music? How loud? Check out the people who go to restaurant. If you find it nice to be around these people while you’re at dinner, book a table. Perhaps a certain table is far from the kitchen doors and not under the air conditioner.
A private kitchen paired with the right wine
There are evenings when you only want a certain kitchen. And if this restaurant is the only one available where you live, there aren’t a lot of options. After returning from Asia, many people go to get a large piece of beef. They tell revenge tales.
On other evenings, the menu should be interesting to your taste buds. Especially when restaurants are clustered in an area and you have options.
Choose the restaurant that gives good value
Price matters when you choose
When you attend a large group, find a group that will give you value for your money. This doesn’t mean being cheap but getting a good meal you feel happy about paying.
Do you want good service in a restaurant? Just don’t expect it. do it. When you find a restaurant you like, make friends with the waiters and waitresses. Treat them as kindly as you would your friends and you’ll find that you’ll get great service all the time.
Sometimes these waiters are very busy and you order a hundred things. When you see them carrying many things to your table and are helpful. Give them space to put it.
Cleanliness in the restaurant
Check out the bathroom
You may just want to check the restaurant before you decide to book a table. Have a drink first then check out the place. Go use the bathroom.
