Eastbourne’s All Saints Chapel has been voted one of the best places in Great Britain to get married.

According to You & Your Wedding magazine, the All Saints Chapel is the 21st best place to get married in the entire country.

They said the venue was ‘as atmospheric as they come’.

“All Saints Chapel ticks all the boxes when it comes to dramatic wedding venues.

“The grade II listed Gothic chapel has more period features that you can shake a stick at, including some seriously stunning stained glass windows”

The venue on Darley Road, just outside the town centre, was in some prestigious company high up the list.

London’s Natural History Museum was ranked fifth, while Hartwell House, a stately home in Berkshire took top spot.

The Royal Pavilion in nearby Brighton also made the list, coming in just behind All Saints Chapel at 23.

The All Saints site was originally an Anglo-Catholic nunnery and convalescent home, designed by Henry Woodyer. All Saints was built between 1867 and 1869 with land donated by the 7th Duke of Devonshire, the chapel was added in 1874.

It has recently become a place of community and all are welcome.
