Next steps

If you would like to make an appointment to view the Tower or the Centre we request that you provide as much detail about your planned wedding in an email to Sarah Davis, Hospitality and Events Manager to sarah.davis@mount-batten-centre.com who will then call you to discuss prior to arranging a viewing appointment.

Any questions you may have can be discussed then when we can go through your ideas and plans for your special day and discuss menu options further.

Please note we are now only able to take booking enquiries for weddings to be held after October 2021.

Sarah, our Hospitality and Events Manager, is liaising with our couples who’s dates have had to have been moved due to the pandemic as a priority, and when we are able, we will arrange a series of open days for showarounds for future enquiries.

At present we can’t say when these dates will be.

We really do appreciate your patience
