We have two barn wedding venues available: Northolt Barn and Skippings Barn, both of which are licenced for civil ceremonies. The barns form part of the Museum’s collection of rescued historic buildings. Each barn can be hired separately, or as part of a combined package to increase capacity and spread your wedding across more of our beautiful site.
Our Skippings Barn is licenced for wedding ceremonies and looks amazing when decorated for a wedding or private function. It makes a great venue for a unique, quirky wedding or celebration and our friendly and dedicated Weddings and Events team will ensure that your day at the Museum is a success.
Located next to the Museum’s Village Green, Skippings Barn has beautiful, rustic oak beams and a wide staircase that leads to a stunning minstrels’ gallery, ideal for a live band or D.J. to entertain your guests. Barn doors open to the field behind which can be used to erect a large marquee if desired. The barn can seat up to 60 people for a ceremony. You can party until 11.30 pm but we ask that all visitors have left the site by midnight.
Whilst we are happy to recommend some fantastic suppliers who are familiar with working at the Museum and who we trust to take care of you on your special day, wedding couples are welcome to bring in their own suppliers if they would prefer. We also do not charge a corkage fee.
If desired, you can hire a marquee or put up a gazebo that can stand in an enclosed field directly backing onto Skippings Barn.
