Review of The Bishop's Palace
Posted Alice MCustomer visited Nov 2018by
We would definitely recommend the Bishop's Palace as a wedding venue. We were looking for somewhere beautiful that would allow us to have a more personal day than a standard hotel package and that is absolutely what we got. The Palace and gardens are really stunning and Kelly and her team were flexible, understanding and really accommodating, helping us make the day just as we wanted it. Kelly was really helpful right from the start and really went out of her way for us, from sourcing shot glasses for the soup canapés, to taking care of dietary requirements and frequent changes to the plans at the last minute. We went for an afternoon tea and then hog roast which went down really well with all our guests (and Bishop's Palace makes some of the best home-made scones we've tasted). Even though we managed to hit the one rainy day in about 2 months of sunshine, our photos are gorgeous and we had a wonderful day. The only challenge was not having on-site accommodation/ late licence but with hotels within a short walk this wasn't a big problem.
