Hawarden Castle Cricket Pavilion was built in the 1920s on what has often been described as ‘Wales’ most beautiful cricket pitch’. 

With its views of two castles and set in rolling historic parkland it’s easy to understand why the pitch was so loved by the Hawarden’s cricketers, but in 2016 the club moved to a new site half a mile away.

The Pavilion has now been beautifully renovated to become one of Wales’ most unusual and beautiful events spaces and wedding venues. With two large events rooms, amazing views, full access to 2.75 acres of cricket pitch, a fully-equipped kitchen, a separate bar in the score hut and brilliant showers and loos the venue is available for hire. 

Hawarden Cricket Club was established in 1865 with Prime Minister William Gladstone playing his first match in 1867. In the early days of the cricket club a tent was used as a pavilion which was soon replaced by a corrugated iron structure. In the 1920s the current building was built by the Gladstone family and given to the club. 

The building has been renovated to the very highest standards without losing any of its storied past and is a place that your guests will never forget.


Hawarden Castle Pavilion has been restored by and is owned, managed and run by the team behind The Good Life Experience, The Glynne Arms, Hawarden Estate Farm Shop and Pedlars.
