About Tudor Place Historic House and Garden

Built in 1816 with gracious events in mind, Tudor Place has radiated serenity and elegance for nearly two centuries. Let us bring that feeling to your special day!

Leafy and open, Tudor Place Historic House & Garden can feel like a rural retreat, but this historic Georgetown estate is right in D.C., convenient to downtown, Virginia, and Maryland. Venue locations onsite include the outdoor garden areas: East Lawn, Bowling Green, and South Lawn, and the indoor 1867 Victorian Dower House. Add interest to your event with a guided tour of the National Historic Landmark house!

Tudor Place is the perfect location for a small, intimate wedding celebration. For any wedding or event rental, chose from three garden locations + one historic interior for your ceremony:

∞ Bowling Green, a romantic and secluded oasis of lush greenery

∞ East Lawn, a formally landscaped area framed by leafy trees

∞The base of the Tulip Poplar on our South Lawn, an airy open space crowned by one of our 200-year old trees

The Temple Portico, an impressive architectural backdrop that was designed to stand the test of time

∞ Historic 1867 Dower House, a graceful Victorian mansion

Tudor Place's 5 1/2 acres of lushly landscaped gardens and historic structures lend a sense of elegance from centuries past to your special day. When looking for that perfect place, consider joining the long tradition of memorable events hosted at this gracious venue.

    Great venue in the heart of Georgetown

    We knew we wanted to get married at Tudor Place upon our first visit. The gardens were so beautiful and they had multiple spaces we could use for our reception. We decided to use the East Lawn for a 50 person cocktail reception and Amy, the events manager, was so helpful in the planning process.

    Tudor Place is located in the heart of Georgetown and convenient to many churches and hotels. We had a great planning experience and would recommend to anyone planning an event.

    Intimate outdoor wedding

    We loved having our initiate 10 guest wedding at Tudor Place. The whole process was very easy. We did a walk through to see locations and decided on the beautiful Bowling Green. Since we had a November wedding, we also added on the ability to have the Dower House to escape the cold. Amy was very responsive and great to work with. Hillary was also very helpful on the day of our wedding and was very patient with our late decision of indoor or outdoor ceremony. Best of all, the garden was a gorgeous setting for our photos and ceremony. It feels like you’re not in the city at all! We’re so happy we decided to have our wedding at Tudor Place.

    No regrets!

    This venue is beautiful. They were very accommodating to our needs, super easy to work with and our guests loved walking the gardens prior to the ceremony.
