Weddings at Abington Park Museum

You can hold your special day in the stunning surroundings of Northampton's beautiful Grade 1 listed museum in the very heart of Abington Park.

The museum's Great Hall and Thursby Room are available for wedding ceremonies, civil partnerships and receptions, and our dedicated staff provide the highest level of service to ensure your day is truly memorable.

The Great Hall

The Great Hall, built by the Bernard family, is the oldest part of Abington Park Museum in its current form, having been dated to between 1496 and 1508 and is a fantastic space for weddings and receptions.

The Thursby Room

This room was added as part of alterations by John Harvey Thursby in the 1670s. The marble fireplace dates from the 18th century. The room was the main reception space of the house during Georgian and early Victorian times and so using it for your wedding celebration would be very much in keeping with its original purpose.
