Celebrate Something Special In Salisbury

Whether it’s an afternoon tea with long-time friends, a Christmas meal to unite family far and wide, or even a winter wedding to end the year on a high, The Red Lion Hotel is the ideal place to celebrate in Salisbury.

Being the oldest purpose-built hotel in Europe, special celebrations here are truly a unique and unforgettable event! Offering guests with something significant to cheer, toast or salute, a beautiful location to mark the occasion, packed with character, full of old world charm, and rich with elegance.

So, if you’re looking for a party venue or an event space in central Salisbury, here are some of the types of celebration we can help you to deliver…


Christmas Parties

We love a Christmas shindig at the Red Lion Hotel, so at this festive time of year we pull out all the stops to make our Christmas parties an event to remember. Together with a choice of dinner and lunch menus for a fixed price, we also put on DJ evenings on Fridays and Saturdays, so our guests (over 18) can suitably let their hair down.


Weddings & Civil Partnerships

Call us bias but as wedding venues in Salisbury go we think our 13th century hotel is something rather special, and our guests who get married with us tend to agree. If you choose to tie the knot at The Red Lion Hotel Salisbury you’ll have the support of our event manager to iron out all the details. As well as everything you need to make the dream day you’ve always pictured a perfect success.


Afternoon Tea in our Victoria Lounge

One of the oldest parts of the original hotel, our Victoria Lounge dates back to 1220, so its ambiance makes it the perfect place to relax with our chefs’ indulgent afternoon tea. For special occasions a glass of champagne (or a bottle) can be added to our teas on request. But three tiers of scones, sandwiches and cakes, already make any occasion feel like a treat.


Corporate celebrations

With our 13th century hotel having been at the heart of Salisbury for over eight centuries, it is the perfect destination to celebrate a fantastic year in business. Whether you would like to attend a team building day at one of our local attractions, with somewhere to rest your heads, or just get the team together to celebrate your achievements in a unique environment. The Red Lion is able to offer the perfect solution. Our fully appointed meeting rooms offer flexible arrangements for up to 110 delegates. While our in-house chefs can cater to your every dietary need- not forgetting our 60 unique and stunning bedrooms!
