Insole Court, Llandaff

Insole Court is a 160 year old mansion house with a fabulous history.  The Insole family story mirrors Cardiff’s rise and decline during the Victorian and Edwardian eras. The Insoles were pioneering coal-shippers and mine-owners, railwaymen and docksmen during the three generations of Welsh Steam Coal’s dominance of world industry.

The family reached the height of its prosperity in the late 19th Century having acquired large land holdings, central to which was their home.  What started as a modest family home in 1856, was soon extended in the gothic revival manner, aspiring to emulate William Burges’ work for the Marquis of Bute at Cardiff Castle.  In the 1880s the hallmark of gentrification was acquired by converting the farmland surrounding the gardens into a fine ornamental park. 

Many of the original features have been carefully restored and this stunning and truly wonderful building will soon be available as a backdrop for your special day.

The venue can accommodate 60 daytime guests and up to 100 in the evening and are delighted to announce that they will be working with EJ Catering and Weddings by Zoë to create your beautiful and seamless wedding day from Spring 2018.
