  • From the service to the canapés up to the dessert it kept on getting better and better, really liked the food and wine. Thank you!  more »
  • We found it very interesting to walk round and the Keep had some amazing views. Be aware that if going on a Saturday it may be closed due to a wedding / function. So I was a bit disappointed that my o...  more »
  • This is an English Heritage property with free admission to the keep. There are lots of steep steps. The lower levels have a handrail, but higher up you have to hold onto the wall and there are three ...  more »

  • Quite a decent place to visit, but it is quite small and you'll see everything very quickly. Views from the top are great and the surrounding gardens are very nice.
  • Beautiful building and garden with regal feeling. Exclusive weddings look fantastic.
  • We got married at Farnham castle this month and it was without question the best day imaginable. To start with the positives (of which there are many)... From the moment we arrived, our dedicated wedding planner had everything under control. Patrick was an absolute professional from the first to the last minute of our day and the event ran like clockwork as a result (an opinion shared by ourselves and family). The venue flows better than any wedding venue we (and many of our friends/family) have been to. The food served during the day (canapes, wedding breakfast and BBQ) is beyond exceptional; the main comment from the guests surrounded the quality of Farnham Castle's food. Five stars, genuinely. The venue including the gardens, the lantern hall, the great hall and the bedrooms (obviously we had the honeymoon suite which was incredible) is perfect in every way. This venue is close to perfection, but it has flaws that are easy to address if willing (or maybe if you ask). The catering company that run the venue are quite simply greedy, to the point where you must pay for everything and anything. Whilst this is expected from a wedding venue, there are cases where such greed is harming their business. One example: if you want the bar to stay open beyond 11pm, they want £500. This specifically relates to the hotel bar for all 32 rooms that the wedding party have booked (full). Despite being closed, we filled this bar until 1:30am drinking warm champagne (wedding gifts) and could have happily continued with nightcaps contributing to a bar revenue income of well beyond the fee. A £500 charge to employ one barman for a couple of ours is quite simply a disgrace and beyond greedy. Despite this, the only other negative we found and have heard from several guests is that the breakfast, despite being a warm roll (plus continental), is extremely poor with ingredients running out, cold stale brioche buns and stingy meat portions inside the sausage/bacon rolls. The caterers should strongly consider warming/toasting the brioche buns served with both breakfast but also the evening BBQ as this was the only fault identified from the daytime food. I regret to add negatives but these won't take away from what will always be the best day of our lives.
  • Beautiful castle, very nice walk, well kept grounds.
  • Not very much to see, entrance is free, access to the old keep and the gardens. Nice to have a quick look around
