This charming house is located in an unspoilt Georgian Street, complete with cobbled stones and Regency lampposts.

Full of character, and one of Portsmouth's most intimate venues, the birthplace holds up to 16 guests and is perfect for that exclusive, first-class event.

You will have private use of the whole venue, including the garden, for two hours. Your ceremony will take place in the Exhibition Room and there is also the option for Champagne and canapés afterwards.

'Tis love that makes the world go round, my baby' Charles Dickens
