From 1605 to the present day, Lyveden New Bield remains virtually as it was left four centuries ago.
A building with no roof, no windows and no floors. A garden with moats on three of four intended sides, no plants, no statues or paths. Surrounded in folklore and mystery, Lyveden has escaped the influence of time, fashion and conflict.
Today, the scale, form and beauty of Tresham’s work can again be appreciated and acknowledged as one of the rarest survivals of Elizabethan garden design.
Lyveden was intended for entertaining guests, allowing them to gaze out over the estate. With its rich history, Lyveden provides an unusual backdrop for marquee wedding receptions. Why not have a firework finale? A memorable reminder of why Lyveden stands incomplete after events of November 1605.
Lyveden New Bield is a marquee venue with full flexibility to provide your own catering and drinks, along with all other suppliers.
The hire period is from Wednesday to Monday. The marquee is made available the day before your wedding to decorate yourselves, or allow your suppliers to set up in preparation for your wedding day!
While Lyveden New Bield is not licensed to hold ceremonies, we have beautiful areas of the grounds where you can hold a romantic blessing.
