About the Register Office

The Forest of Dean Office is housed in the Belle Vue Centre which was built as an imposing private Victorian residence by a wealthy local mine owner in the late 1850s.

It has a car park adjacent and disabled access is at the side of the building. The main entrance is reached by a wide flight of stone steps, and a stone pathway leads to a secluded garden area, both are ideal for photographs.

The Oaks is attractively furnished and enjoys the benefit of a comfort cooling system. The room has a maximum occupancy of 48 (including the couple and the two Registrars) which means that you can invite up to 44 guests. Confetti (biodegradable) can be thrown outside the building.
