    The Governor Thomas Bennett House

    We couldn't have asked for a better location. Right in historic downtown Charleston and close enough to take a short trip to the historic Battery Park for some unforgettable pictures. The grounds at Thomas Bennett are absolutely breathtaking, with so many seasonal flowers and natural colors, and the interior of the house takes you back to the days of plantations, great wealth and splendor.

    Highly Recommend!

    Linda at the Governor Thomas Bennett House was amazing to work with, and there were absolutely zero problems. This is a great, newer Charleston venue that really wowed our guests and gave us that old-Charleston feel. We'd recommend this venue to anyone!

    Fabulous and romantic venue. Linda is organized, kind and very helpful. Beautiful, historic home and gardens were the perfect location for our reception and a great way to show off Charleston to our out of town guests. Would choose it all over again!
