Your Dream; Your Wedding; Your Way!

Graced by kings and nobles Newcastle Castle is an iconic, spectacular and magical wedding venue. Dating back to 1080 it is where the story of Newcastle began, steering the course of history for the North East. Let it be the beginning of your story!

Due to the medieval layout of the Castle, when you hire Newcastle Castle you are hiring the whole building giving you and your guests exclusive use of the whole site.

From initial enquiry to the day itself, the team at Newcastle Castle will work with you to make your dream become a reality.

The maximum capacity for a ceremony is 60 guests, and for a drinks reception/buffet it is 80 guests.

For further information on how to hire this iconic venue, and what we can offer you, please contact Ruth on 0191 230 6300, or email

"We cannot thank you enough for Saturday!!! The Harbottle Suite looked absolutely amazing, everything was perfect. Our day was organised with precision but also with the level of care that we and all of our guests were completely blown away by! Please, thank everyone who was there, around and about on the day itself and those who helped in the preparations in advance, for making our day fabulous!!!"
