Commissioner’s House

Reception Hall


Commissioner's House was completed in 1704 for the Commissioner & his family. Above all it was built to entertain in the grand style but it was also a family home. As a result it is a "friendly" building that combines space & grandeur with the familiar qualities of an elegant home.

This is an exquisite setting for your marriage or civil partnership ceremony and/or the reception which follows. Built in 1704 for the Dockyard's resident Commissioner and his family, the house is the oldest, and probably the most attractive naval building to survive intact in Britain today. The moment you step into the Reception Hall at Commissioner's House you realise you're somewhere special. Many couples remember the moment they first saw Commissioner's House... it was the moment they found their wedding venue.

If you are getting married soon and looking for a stylish, memorable venue or helping to organise a couple's day, look no further.
