About Us

Upon arriving at Whitby Castle, you’ll be immediately drawn to the architectural details framed by the perfectly manicured lawns and breathtaking views of the Long Island Sound.  Built as a private residence in 1852, it boasts striking similarities to the original Whitby Abbey in England, including some of the original Abbey stones. The grandeur of the exterior continues in the impressive ballroom, with walls of windows and vaulted ceilings.  Hold your ceremony under a simple arch set in front of the castle, surrounded by friends and family on the charming green, followed by an al fresco cocktail hour on the patio, encompassed by views of the Milton Harbor.  Your fairytale wedding awaits you at Whitby Castle.
