WEDDINGS

Make lasting memories with those you love at Lakeside, a distinctive wedding venue in a stunning waterside location. 

With stylishly modern function rooms for weddings and events, intimate fine dining restaurant and a comfortable bar area, the revitalised Lakeside is a truly unique venue, just a stone’s throw from Nottingham.

Built in 1873, Lakeside was originally known as Bestwood Pumping Station and was one of three steam-powered pumping stations built to supply Nottingham with water.

Enjoy a walk around the landscaped gardens and lake before climbing the steps of the iconic tower to take in the sweeping views across the Nottinghamshire countryside.

We are always interested in hearing from dedicated individuals who can deliver the highest level of service.
