It's hard to find picture-perfect settings in the modern world, but Angel House delivers. This stunning regency townhouse overlooks the Angel Peace statue and the Brighton and Hove seafront.
Set a little back from the water's edge; this venue has a strikingly urban feel. The interiors, however, are what set it apart from any other place on this list. The beautiful crown moulding on the ceilings and walls combined with gold leaf and marble flooring makes for a sumptuous interior.
Besides, Angel House offers several well-appointed suites for gay couples, plenty of space to entertain, and ground floor bar and canapes. There's also a bridal suite above the main function rooms that gay couples are welcome to use before their ceremony.
