Weddings in Skillicorne Gardens



Set within the stunning walled garden overlooking the colourful Imperial Gardens. Beautifully restored and surrounded by period terraces, a romantic and unique alfresco venue.

Skillicorne Gardens is a memorial to Captain Henry Skillicorne, a retired naval captain and adventurer, who established Cheltenham’s first Spa and actively promoted the healing properties of the Spa Waters.
