Welcome to one of Britain’s most iconic castles, Alnwick Castle.
This majestic and illustrious venue, filled with architectural delights, provides the most spectacular surroundings for you to celebrate your special day. The Alnwick Castle Guest Hall lends a historic atmosphere to wedding celebrations, with its beautifully restored beamed roof and stone archways. This spectacular banqueting hall and adjoining Castle Courtyard allows guests to mingle within the grand medieval walls and its cobbled squares. Enjoy a canapé reception upon our splendid sun terrace, with sweeping views of the Capability Brown parkland, as well as undertake Broomstick Training with Alnwick Castle’s resident wizarding professors, on the very lawn where Harry Potter first learnt to fly!
For more intimate affairs, Alnwick Castle’s private parklands provide stunning scenery and a secluded location to commence your celebrations. We offer two beautifully exclusive venues situated within the privacy of Hulne Park; Hulne Abbey and Friars Well.
Hulne Abbey is a truly enchanting venue, nestled on a hillside, with exceptional views of the sprawling countryside. Surrounded by medieval walls and founded in the 13th Century as a Carmelite monastery, Hulne Abbey is the perfect setting to bask in the afternoon sun and observe dancing stars in the dark Northumbrian night skies.
The country residence of Friars Well offers the ultimate venue for private entertaining, and the perfect palatial home to relax in. With 5 large reception rooms, 8 bedrooms including a magnificent master suite, indoor heated swimming pool and a variety of large terraces with outstanding views of its own private lake, there’s plenty of space to celebrate with your friends and family.
