Weddings at Charlestown Harbour
Article Published: Tuesday 2nd June, 2020 - 8:53am
Charlestown Harbour, one of Cornwall’s most iconic locations, is now available for couples seeking a memorable and timelessly beautiful setting to marry. The small, privately owned Grade II listed Georgian harbour and UNESCO World Heritage Site is located on the rugged south Cornish coast, offering a picturesque and personality-packed locale for your party.
Steeped in maritime history and home to a fleet of striking classic tall ships, couples can marry in the intimate climes of The Round House, which can be found at the end of the east side of the harbour, offering sweeping views across St Austell Bay. Built in the late 1800s, the atmospheric space can host intimate ceremonies with up to eight guests in attendance, while larger receptions can take place in the heart of the inner harbour on board the tall ship, Kajsamoor (which is also available for dry hire as a venue only).
Built in Norway in 1939, since arriving in Charlestown in 2017 the ship has enjoyed various appearances on the silver screen and TV, featuring in the likes of ‘Poldark’, ‘Taboo’ and ‘Frontier’. Create a tailored package to suit your requirements, from a drinks reception on the open deck space to a three-course meal for up to 30 seated guests (or 50 standing) provided by popular local restaurant, The Longstore.
Complete with stunning beaches on its doorstep for loved-up strolls, this working port offers romance and character in spine-tingling abundance.
