Fonthill Castle is a mansion venue located in Doylestown, PA, that is available for private events. Suitable for events ranging from large outdoor weddings to intimate parties, this venue offers a one-of-a-kind backdrop for private gatherings. The century-old castle was built as the home of anthropologist Henry Chapman Mercer, who incorporated unique features throughout the mansion.
Fonthill Castle is nestled among rolling hills and vibrant trees and is reached from a long, winding driveway. The whimsical mansion is reminiscent of a fairytale castle and is equally as stunning from the outside as it is inside. The landscaped gardens provide a picturesque setting, while a large tent offers shelter during events. Inside, the house showcases an otherworldly display of patterned tiles, which line the floors, walls, and windowpanes. The colorful Moravian mosaics are both eye-catching and enchanting, and they are highlighted when sunlight streams in through the massive windows.
Fonthill Castle’s outdoor event space can accommodate 200 guests, while the interior is suitable for 40 attendees. The venue is equipped with a sound system for entertainment, as well as amenities including WiFi for guests’ convenience. An event manager is delighted to assist each client in coordinating the details of their special occasion.
