Franklin’s View: A Wedding Venue Spotlight 

If you want a truly exclusive wedding venue right in the city center of Philadelphia, Franklin’s View is a perfect choice. The garden-like setting is perfect for couples who want a romantic space that intertwines a rustic feel with modern elegance. 

The Rich History of Franklin’s View

Franklin's View

Franklin’s View is located in Franklin Square, right in the heart of downtown Philadelphia and catty-corner to the iconic Independence Mall and Liberty Bell. This historic eight-acre park, planned by William Penn in 1682, is one of the five original squares in Philadelphia. It was later renamed after Benjamin Franklin in 1825 and has served many purposes–including a horse and cattle market and parade ground during the War of 1812. 

Now it’s a bustling public park where locals and tourists alike enjoy the beautiful atmosphere. The mid-19th century fountain and carousel certainly add to the charm of the location and make beautiful backdrops for wedding photos!
