This elegant grade 1 listed building, designed by Sir Thomas Fitch and completed 1689 is steeped in history and a dominant feature of the town.  Set among the splendour of historic Windsor with its easy access, famous visitor attractions and superb shopping and dining offer, Windsor Guildhall is an ideal venue for meetings, gala dinners and weddings.

There are two rooms available.  The imposing Council Chamber houses a fine collection of royal portraits spanning the years between Queen Elizabeth I and HM Queen Elizabeth II.  The Chamber also features two impressive solid brass chandeliers, each weighing over 6cwt, which are on permanent loan from HM The Queen.

The intimate Ascot Room was chosen by HRH Prince Charles for his civil ceremony in 2005 and again later the same year by Sir Elton John for his civil partnership.

Whether you are searching for a venue for a wedding or family celebration, gala dinner, drinks reception or meeting, Windsor Guildhall is sure to impress. 

You are welcome to visit for a show-round 7 days a week.  Alternatively, please view our 360 virtual tour.

PLANNING A WEDDING?

In 2005 the eyes of the world were on Windsor when Prince Charles married Camilla Parker Bowles in the Ascot Room of Windsor Guildhall.  This wasn’t the only newsworthy ceremony to take place at the venue.  In December 2005 Windsor Guildhall hit the headlines again when Sir Elton John and his partner David Furnish tied the knot in one of the first civil partnership ceremonies to take place in the UK.

Ceremonies at Windsor Guildhall are not the preserve of Royalty and rock stars.  You can book your ceremony in the very room these high-profile ceremonies took place.

The Ascot Room can hold up to 15 guests for a ceremony and the impressive Chamber can seats up to 100 guests.

Ceremony bookings are for 1 hour and the price can depend on the day of the week and whether or not you are a resident of the Borough.  The prices show here are for valid until 31 March 2018.  If you need to cancel your ceremony for any reason you will be refunded 50% of the fee.
