A Castle at Sea – Elizabeth Castle

A majestic venue for your Jersey wedding

    Elizabeth Castle sits within the picturesque bay of St Aubin, overlooking the south coast of Jersey and completely surrounded by the tide twice a day. You will be transported across from the shore in one of our castle ferries, offering a truly unique experience for you and your guests.

    Elizabeth Castle in St Aubin’s Bay is a perfect venue for your Jersey wedding. Civil wedding ceremonies are held in the Governor’s House, which was built in the 1590s. Sir Walter Raleigh was its first resident and it was where Charles II lived during his short stay in the 1640s. This beautiful castle has a large terrace, perfect for drinks after your ceremony, and is located near the top of  this historic site where the views are fantastic. Your guests will be thrilled with this wonderful castle location and your Channel Islands wedding will be something  truly spectacular.

    Due to its unique location access is very dependent on the tide and weather, as the Castle Ferry will take you and your guests to and from the castle.

    The castle ferry can operate at all times except when the tide is high and the wind is strong creating a rough sea. Please take advice from our staff when booking your function. For certain types of event only specific dates will be available.
