The Hop Farm Wedding Venue

Venue Info

Farm Wedding Venue


The Hop Farm Family Park is a 400-acre Country Park in Beltring, near East Peckham in Kent, England.

The farm is over 450 years old, and has the largest collection of oast houses in the world.

Up until 1997, the farm was known as The Whitbread Hop Farm, named after it’s previous owner – Whitbread brewery.

Originally a working farm, the brewery was opened to visitors and proved to be quite an attraction.

In 1990, Whitebread made plans to move out of the brewing trade and was keen to acquire new owners for the farm.  


The farm was eventually sold for 2 million pounds and has since been a venue for countless events.

From weddings to parties, to private functions, The Hop Farm Family Park has proven to be one of the most ideal place to host your event.  

Some of the attraction the Farm holds are –

Yesterdays Village
