The UK is blessed with such a diverse landscape, from quaint market towns to bustling city centres, rich countryside to beautiful coastlines, and each will have a unique and quirky wedding venue for those looking for something a little off the beaten track.

BBC News reports that Selfridges in London has been granted a licence to host weddings, for those who want to tie the knot in a department store, so we thought we’d have a look at a few truly unique wedding venues in the UK.

Lusty Glaze Beach

This secluded, private, horseshoe-shaped cove Newquay, Cornwall is the only beach in the country that is licensed for wedding ceremonies, and makes for a wonderful backdrop for all your wedding photography, while guests enjoy the soothing sound of waves splashing on the shore.

Ceremonies take place on the Top Deck and your wedding breakfast and evening entertainment are celebrated in The Marquee. You can lap up the show-stopping view of the Atlantic Ocean throughout your special day.

Cley Windmill

Found in the quaint village of Cley-next-the-sea next to the River Glaven in Norfolk, this historic five-storey windmill is far from a traditional manor house wedding venue with its stunning surroundings and amazing facilities.

As well as the wonderful ceremony and reception space, the Mill boasts a stage on the second floor acting as the perfect spot for those all-important wedding photographs.

Victoria Baths

The stunning Victoria Baths in Manchester offers an innovative space to tie the knot. There are five licensed ceremony spaces, including the Victorian swimming pools.

For a lavish and uncommon celebration space, the Gala Pool is a completely bespoke setting. It boasts dramatic high ceilings, raised seating above the pool and original changing cubicles. This space is a truly unique backdrop for your wedding photographs.

To add to its quirky qualities, this venue has been a popular filming location throughout the years, featuring in several tv dramas and series, including Peaky Blinders, Antiques Roadshow and Life on Mars.
