STEEPED IN HISTORY
The Alverton Hotel dates back to the 1800s, when it was built as a convent by the same architect as Truro Cathedral in 1830. The striking building showcases an array of historic and original features, from the imposing bell tower and ivy-clad walls, to the arched mullioned windows and bellowing front door. Each detail takes you on an enchanting journey and contributes to a classic and stately backdrop for your wedding day.
2. KEY TO CORNWALL
The Alverton is hidden away on the hillside of Truro, just a stone’s throw from the city’s bustling highstreet, though just far enough to give it a secluded and relaxed feel.
The venue offers a romantic and elegant setting for your big day, with its unmatched facade and beautiful surroundings. The south-facing terrace and lawns make for a glorious spot to spend moments in between the ceremony and wedding breakfast, exploring the garden’s native plants and intriguing archways. The location is also the perfect gateway to venture into the city and beyond, to soak up Cornwall’s local delights and incredible landscapes.
3. INTIMATE AND GRAND WEDDINGS
The prestigious Great Hall, with its bold vaulted ceilings, sets the scene for an effortlessly illustrious wedding. Seating 140 guests for the wedding breakfast, and up to 180 for the reception – this space is the perfect choice for a bigger wedding party. Alternatively, The Alverton has three other fully licensed rooms for ceremonies, including the chic and contemporary Library, which is ideal for smaller more intimate weddings.
4. AWARD-WINNING FOOD
With two AA rosette chefs heading up the kitchen, it’s not hard to see why The Alverton is renowned for its delectable wedding breakfast. You can rest assured that your guests will feel completely spoilt with award-winning food and drink served up throughout the day, from delicate canapes upon arrival, to heavenly main dishes from a wide selection of menu options.
5. STAY FOR A WHILE
With 51 luxurious bedrooms available at the hotel, you and your guests are invited to relish the opulent comfort and pampering that The Alverton has to offer. The bridal suite is offered complimentary on the night of your big day, and guests can enjoy special rates for their stay. The entire hotel is even available to hire exclusively on certain dates.
