Wardown House, Museum and Gallery is situated in the beautiful landscaped Wardown Park, on the outskirts of Luton town centre. Currently undergoing a major redevelopment, Wardown is now closed. However, upon re-opening we are excited to launch Weddings at Wardown.
Wardown House would like to offer couples the opportunity to hold their wedding ceremony in the refurbished Drawing Room. This new space will offer views over the gorgeous Wardown Park and special features of the room will include a grand fire place, local art and a selection of musical objects from the museums collections. The Drawing Room will have capacity for up to 40 people only and will primarily be used for ceremonies only. Our new Dining Room has seating for around 28 people for light refreshments post ceremony and drinks receptions only.
