A little known gem centrally located in Mt Albert, Alberton is a beautiful historic house built in 1863 offering several lovely options for receptions and ceremonies and lots of picturesque settings for photographs. Set in a heritage garden, it has the grandeur of a mansion, once the crown of a 500 acre estate but it also has the intimacy of a family home.
The front steps are a breath-taking setting for a ceremony and for group photographs with the ornate balconies and Indian inspired turrets as a backdrop.
The verandah overlooking the garden is a charming space for serving celebratory drinks and canapes, with alcoves that can accommodate a live band or a bar. It is also a nice space for a desserts and cake table.
Garden receptions are popular in summer and have a enchanting ambiance when decorated with lights and lanterns. A seated meal can be served in a marquee using whichever caterers you choose. We can recommend a wide range of catering options - from a high-end seated service to a buffet (spit roasts are popular), to some of Auckland's top food trucks - all of which are experienced in working at our venue.
Inside the grand Victorian ballroom, with its opulent wallpaper and drapes, can also be used for hosting a reception, accommodating up to 70 for a seated meal. Or you may want to use this space later in the evening to serve tea and cake. Alberton has an extensive collection of vintage silverware and fine china tea sets available for hire.
We are a flexible venue that allows hirers to use the spaces and to decorate as they like in order to personalise their celebrations.

Alberton is also available for wedding photography and can be hired for other celebrations such as bridal showers or engagement parties.
