Capturing the spirit of 19th Century innovation every corner of Mount Stuart House exudes a charm and charisma of its very own. Celebrated as one of Britain’s most spectacular Victorian Gothic houses, Mount Stuart is the architectural fantasy of the 3rd Marquess of Bute and his architect Robert Rowan Anderson. It is their power of imagination, innovation and ingenuity that is behind the remarkable venue that is unashamed in its flamboyant decadence. From the cosmic charm of the Marble Hall, impeccably crafted with Italian and Sicilian marble and alabaster, to the breathtaking Marble Chapel, Mount Stuart House promises to provide a wondrous backdrop for your big day.
