Here are just five reasons why we believe our historic city centre hotel is the ideal venue to start your married life in harmony.


  1. We are a unique historical building

The Red Lion Hotel is Europe’s oldest purpose built hotel, in fact we’ve been here since the late 13th Century. Over the years we’ve worked hard to preserve the original character features and details that give the hotel its unique historical significance. If you’re looking for a beautiful venue which creates the perfect romantic backdrop for your those all important photographs on your big day, you can’t get closer than The Red Lion Salisbury.


  1. A town centre location

We’re located right in the centre of Salisbury, a beautiful cathedral city in the South of England within the county of Wiltshire. Connected by great rail and road connections to Hampshire, Devon, Gloucestershire, Somerset and London, and with regional airports nearby in Southampton, Bristol, Bournemouth and Exeter, we’re the ideal destination for friends and family traveling in from near or far.


  1. We have 60 bedrooms to sleep your guests

Not only are we are a fully licenced wedding venue in Salisbury, with a choice of two ceremony rooms, the fact we’re a hotel also means we have plenty of room to sleep your wedding guests overnight. In fact, we have 60 beautifully stylish and well-appointed rooms within The Red Lion, all of which include breakfast the next day as part of our inclusive room rate, with special rates available for your guests.


  1. You get your own wedding planning team

Every couple who takes up one of our three tiers of wedding package at The Red Lion gets to work with our dedicated wedding and events planning team who’ll even be on hand to ensure everything goes to perfect plan the day of the wedding. Whether you need support with building a bespoke package or would like the team to take all of the planning stress away – the team will ensure every detail is taken care of so you and your guests can focus on enjoying the day!


  1. Food, drink and wine pairings included as standard

We offer our couples a choice of three unique wedding packages, Bronze, silver and gold, each of which fully caters for a minimum of 20 guests. As well as offering a choice of starters, mains and desserts for your wedding breakfast, each package also includes a welcome drink, as well as wine with dinner and a glass of something bubbly for the toasts.
