London Wetherspoon’s Knight’s Templar is closing: couples can no longer get married in a legendary pub

The only Wetherspoons outlet that hosts weddings is closing on Saturday (18 March), ending the pub group’s offering of affordable ceremonies in the capital.

The venue at Chancery Lane, Holborn, London is the former headquarters of the Union Bank.

Knight’s Templar is popular with London university students as the pub is opposite the Maughan Library which is part of the University of London and King’s College London.

Whilst the pub has seen many chaotic nights of sports team social events, it has often been the central London venue for couples on their wedding day.

Wedding celebrations are rarely affordable in the capital, but the pub had offered a more affordable package, which included meals for 100 guests, three bottles of house wine per table, a wedding planner, flowers, table decorations and a live DJ, reportedly costing £5,000.

Meanwhile, the average cost of a wedding in the UK today is estimated to be over £20,000.

This was announced by a spokeswoman for Wetherspoon The evening standard that the venue was popular with couples and regularly booked up at weekends.

The building is on two floors with a large balcony on a mezzanine overlooking the floor below.

JD Wetherspoon operated 852 pubs in the UK and Ireland in 2022 but many locations face closure. Earlier this year, it was announced that the chain will close 34 of its stores in 2023.

Knight’s Templar was the only venue where ceremonies could be held, although other Wetherspoons locations are said to be available for receptions and parties. London Wetherspoon’s Knight’s Templar is closing: couples can no longer get married in a legendary pub
