The Guildhall offers the perfect venue for your special day. Ideally located overlooking the sea at Lyme Regis, the ancient Guildhall enjoys panoramic views across Lyme Bay.

The Grade II listed building dates back to the Stuart period, providing a traditional setting for your civil ceremony.

The main chamber can seat up to 75 guests and disabled access is provided. Wedding stewards are on hand to ensure everything goes according to plan.

We are now taking bookings for weddings for 2023 until March 2025 and from 1st April 2023 there will be a £100 non-refundable deposit. 

If you are thinking of holding your ceremony in the Guildhall, please contact us to arrange a viewing and discuss your requirements.
