Double Drawing Room

The Double Drawing Room at Gildredge Manor

If you’re looking for a local wedding venue and dreaming of a glamorous Georgian Manor House, we will provide exactly that. Why not come and visit us? Gildredge Manor is in Eastbourne’s Old Town in East Sussex.

About the Room

This room in our local wedding venue is ideal for your drinks reception, a buffet and entertainment such as a disco or photo booth.

In the first part of our Double Drawing Room, you and your guests will find our well stocked bar and space for mingling. This room was part of the original house built in 1776.

This leads directly to an adjoining room (added in the early 19th century). This could be your games room if you fancy a game of pool or vintage table football, or entertainment such as your photo booth. Although, if you don’t want this, we can set this room up with some chairs or as your evening buffet.

Both rooms are complete with the original Georgian moulded plasterwork on the ceilings, carvings above the door, parquet floors and full-height windows. Not forgetting the doors leading directly onto the terrace and gardens. This room airy, spacious and light.

Originally, this is where guests would have been received for tea or sherry before meals and ladies retired to after dinner to play the piano and cards, admire artwork or engage in conversation.
