Wadhurst Castle corporate eventsWadhurst Castle is the perfect choice for corporate events including hospitality days, meetings, seminars and conferences. Events can take place in the historic and spacious castle or the separate Carriage Barn. Both are set within the private 140 acre estate with its breath-taking views and beautiful gardens.

For something a little different we can arrange a Wadhurst Castle Experience including a day meeting and flying beautiful owls and birds of prey against the stunning backdrop of the castle estate.

Dinners, drinks receptions and wine tastings are very popular for company and corporate hospitality events.
