Have a rustic barn wedding

Our Arborfield Barn is available for wedding ceremonies. Originally from Carters Hill Farm, near Arborfield, Reading, it was dismantled in 1977 and rebuilt at the Museum in 1980. The barn was used for the filming of Mary Queen of Scots, the scene where the two queens meet. It was also used for filming a wedding in the comedy television series Man Down and was used for a witch trial in the dark comedy, Inside Number 9.

Arborfield Barn can accommodate 46 guests for a civil ceremony. The venue is available for ceremonies only and can be hired for up to 3 hours.
