Kay Chapel

Dating to 1859, Kay Chapel is a historic Newport landmark. After it was officially closed in the 1970s, Hotel Viking purchased and restored the non-ecumenical chapel. Today, it’s one of Newport’s most unique private settings for intimate weddings.

Located adjacent to Hotel Viking at One Bellevue Avenue in Newport, R.I., Kay Chapel accommodates in excess of 200 guests. For information, contact Hotel Viking’s catering sales managers at 401-848-4800.

 

Bridal Afternoon Tea

Afternoon tea was first introduced in the 1840's in England by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, who remedied afternoon "hunger spells" with a delightful snack of tea, bread and butter, and cake. After inviting friends to join her, her afternoon tea became a social event among the English aristocracy.

A Newport tradition like no other, will add glamour and prestige to your wedding festivites. Perfect for a Bridal Shower or a Wedding Weekend Activity- all your guests will be delighted with this classic social event!
