About Us

William Penn Inn is a landmark wedding venue located in Gwynedd, Pennsylvania. The inn’s history can be traced back to 1714 when it was founded as a public house. It has been used as a gathering place among the local community for over 300 years and now hosts idyllic weddings. Located less than an hour from Philadelphia, this venue offers the privacy of the country and the amenities of the city.

Facilities and Capacity

This venue has a plethora of ceremony and reception sites, each with their own distinct charm. You can hold your ceremony in Penn’s Garden, an elegantly manicured lawn featuring colorful flowers and verdant plants. Exchange vows under the space’s wrought-iron gazebo while up to 250 loved ones look on. Indoor weddings can be accommodated in a ballroom of your choice. The Carriage and Surrey Ballrooms provide a classic backdrop for both ceremonies and receptions with delicate chandeliers and vintage decor. Many couples choose the Carriage Ballroom, as its capacity of 250 allows for large gatherings. The Surrey Ballroom, which can accommodate 120 guests, is equally as stunning with bow windows offering views of the grounds. Dining rooms in the venue are suitable for intimate weddings of fewer than 40 attendees.

Services Offered

Staff at the William Penn Inn strive to give couples who wed here timeless memories of their special day. A professional wedding coordinator can oversee the day’s timeline and assist the couple as needed, reducing stress on the big day. Wedding packages here cover catering, and couples will have the opportunity to attend a private menu tasting. A custom wedding cake is also included, as is bar service with the option to add your own signature drink.


The founder of Pennsylvania, William Penn, visited Gwynedd around 1700 to pray with local Quakers. Years later, in 1714, the community founded an inn, which became a popular haven on the route between Philadelphia and the country villages. The establishment was christened the William Penn Hotel in 1827 and began functioning as a tavern. This historic building now holds the title of Pennsylvania’s longest operated country inn.

  • When we went for our first walk through of William Penn Inn, we sat in the parking lot after and tried to decide if it was "the one." A woman knocked on our car window to ask if we would take a picture of her and her husband because it was their 5th anniversary and they got married there. They gushed about how perfect everything was and we immediately made up our minds to get married there. The fact that everything is in-house, including the florist and the cake, really made it easy to plan. We also had a lot of help from our amazing coordinator, Caryn. At the ceremony we were pampered, the room was beautifully decorated and the food was SO GOOD! As a non-traditional couple, we were unsure about a ballroom wedding, but it was so perfect and our families and friends are still raving about it. Best decision ever!
