The grand atrium at The Octagon Barn near Norwich

The Norfolk Event Venue


A little about the Octagon Barn

The Octagon Barn is unique and the only building of its type, unchanged from its original design.

Built around the late 1600s to the early 1700s (the lack of builder’s records don’t help us to date it precisely!) as a non-conformist Methodist meeting chapel, the original 8-side shape sits under a magnificent open vaulted octagon roof to give a grand central atrium.

Octagon Barn offers the perfect Norfolk venue for your wedding or special event.

Amaze your guests when you invite them to our unique eight-sided barn, glorious gardens and enchanting woodlands nestled in the heart of the Norfolk countryside just a few minutes from the fine city of Norwich.

Whatever your purpose, The events team at The Octagon Barn is committed to creating the perfect space for you to impress your guests and treat them to an occasion they won’t forget.

Whether you are planning a wedding, family gathering, celebration or corporate event, The Octagon Barn provides the setting and style to meet your needs.

The barn is a magical place and we truly had the best day of our lives.

Dear Ella & Estelle. We just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our day run so smoothly and for all of your support. You were both amazing - my daughter said 'they were on point!' The barn is a magical place and we truly had the best day of our lives. All of our family and friends said it was the best wedding they had ever been to.

We booked our work Summer Party on Saturday at The Octagon Barn for a second year in a row

It was absolutely everything we imagined it to be and everyone had the best time. The Venue is truly stunning. Photos do not do it justice. You must go and see it to really feel the magic. The location is easy to get to and there is ample parking available. Really please with how everything went. Thank you so much!

We would recommend the venue without hesitation.

We got married at the Octagon during the pandemic; it was it our original planned venue. Katie and the team were amazing in making everything work. We would recommend the venue without hesitation (lovely fields, great barn) but the way we were treated and supported went beyond any of our expectations. An amazing venue for any event, of any size. Highly recommended.


The barns where we had our ceremony were perfect

We had our wedding here in July 2023 and it was so much than we could’ve asked for. Since Sammi took over at The Octagon Barn she made sure we had everything we needed for our day and nothing was too much to ask. From advice, last minute additions and helping us set up and breakdown she made sure everything ran smoothly and there was no stress. The venue itself is beautiful. The barns where we had our ceremony were perfect and the venue itself has so much character it hardly needs anything. We would highly recommend this place for any event!

Where do we start with this wonderful place…..

I’m a year late writing the review because I’ve been trying to find a way to express how amazing it is. We got married here in May 2022 and we couldn’t be happier with our choice of venue. Not only is it beautiful, but you can dress it how you like, have the flexibility on your own catering, bar, entertainment. There is no corkage for welcome and table drinks, and the planning team are brilliant. We can’t recommend the venue enough and has made an ever lasting memory for our big day. Thanks again team.
