Bury Manor Barn, a beautifully restored barn, on the banks of the River Arun in the South Downs. We can accommodate civil, church or celebrant led ceremonies.
Bury Manor Barn is one of the finest wedding venues in Sussex and can be found at the end of a quiet village lane, on the banks of the River Arun. It enjoys panoramic views of the valley. A stunning Tudor barn, set in the picturesque rural village of Bury, near Pulborough in the heart of the South Downs National Park. The barn and its idyllic surroundings are in the grounds of Dorset House School – one of the oldest prep schools in the country. Steeped in history, records of the Manor date back to the Domesday Book. Bury Manor has had many incarnations – from a monastic building in the 12th century to a traditional manor house and a popular Edwardian House party retreat from London. This is an incredibly individual and special venue. Church, Civil or Humanist ceremonies can be held in this unique setting. We have a number of caterers for you consider and they are all happy to work with couples to create the perfect menu – whether your choice is traditional and formal or modern and relaxed. For guests staying overnight in the area, there is an excellent variety of accommodation – from a luxury castle hotel to quirky Airbnbs, we can supply a list of places to stay. Bury Manor Barn is easily accessible by road and is on a quiet lane just off the A29. The closest railway station is Amberley but Pulborough offers a more frequent service. From here it is 1 hour 15 mins to London Victoria and 40 minutes to Gatwick Airport.

I am so glad we picked Bury Manor Barn. The view alone is perfect, let alone the beautiful manor backdrop and the barn itself. Julie and her team are wonderfully helpful and reassuring on every detail. They are so generous with the space, and it felt like everything we asked was always a yes. The on the day coordinator ran everything flawlessly. On the day we consistently had guests comment how gorgeous the venue and setting was, and half of our friends are now considering moving to Bury or Amberley! I'm so glad we picked Bury Manor Barn, the best decision!

Not only is this one of the most beautiful venues, Julie has been amazing! My jaw dropped when I first saw the barn and surrounding area. Julie has gone over and above from FaceTiming to so we could see the venue to emailing back so promptly. The process of choosing and working with a wedding venue was made 1000 times easier the minute I walked through their doors. Thank you!

Stunning venue, fantastic management team, highly recommend! Beautiful venue with stunning views at an affordable price, what's not to like! Julie at Bury Manor Barn has been a joy to deal with, very accommodating and flexible, always easy to get hold of and very friendly. She's answered all of our many questions and filled us with confidence that we've made the right choice to have our wedding at this amazing venue!

Best Wedding Ever From the first time we visited Bury Manor Barn and met Julie, we knew this was the place for us. We had initially been reticent about going with a dry hire, but Julie made the whole process really simple. The list of suggested suppliers was really helpful and we were able to find the right people for us. One key element for us was being able to live stream our wedding, and Julie worked closely with our Live Streamer Moritz Schmittat to make sure the technical side was taken care of. On the day Gemma and Sarah were on hand to make sure everything ran smoothly and we had a fabulous day. We would highly recommend Bury Manor Barn. Not only is it set in glorious surroundings, we felt totally confident in Julie and her team's hands.
