Whether you want elevated panoramic views, historic buildings, riverside settings, landscaped gardens, unique architecture, woodland parks - or a combination - each of our colleges has a unique atmosphere to fall in love with.

Durham Castle

It is said that there is no finer venue in the North East for weddings than the Great Hall and Senate Rooms of Durham Castle.

The Great Hall at the Castle is one of the largest and most impressive of its kind in the country. Dating back to 1284 it is 45 feet high and over 100 feet long and can comfortably accommodate 80 to 200 guests.

Civil ceremonies and partnerships are also available for up to 120 guests.


Hatfield College

The intimate eighteenth-century buildings of Hatfield College create the perfect venue to hold your Wedding Reception. The early Georgian dining hall is ideal for wedding banquets for up to 130 people.


College of St Hild & St Bede

Set within 16 acres of beautiful and photogenic riverside grounds the College can offer wedding breakfast in the Joachim Room which is a converted chapel.
