Just for you, there could be the perfect venue in the heart of Clifton, in the beautiful surrounds of Georgian and Victorian buildings, manicured gardens and wonderful hidden surprises – a shell-studded grotto, ornamental canal, statues and a fully restored rotunda.

You can experience this at Goldney House and Clifton Hill House. Both have stunning gardens, beautiful listed buildings, and some secret spaces that very few people in Bristol even know about, let alone have seen. Wow your guests with something truly different, fabulous food and personal service in a venue that is all yours for your special day.

Thank you for working so hard to help us bring together all of the little details that made the day ours. Thank you for providing us what was an absolute dream afternoon at Goldney.

"The day ran so perfectly and you dressed Goldney and Clifton Hill House exactly how I’d asked, but in my opinion so so much better than I would have done... I was blown away when I stepped inside the Orangery... The day was like a fairy tale... From start to finish it was perfect and stress free" Tracy & Paul, September 2018
