About Newcastle Castle

The story of Newcastle began here. Let it be the beginning of your story…

Newcastle Castle is a truly unique and beautiful wedding venue located in the heart of Newcastle Upon Tyne. Dating back to the 11th century, this remarkable Norman Fortress will be your very own castle for the day, with characterful and historic architecture throughout providing an idyllic setting for your fairytale wedding.

Whether you’d prefer to dance the night away with live medieval music, have surly guards greet your guests on arrival, have cannon fire announce your wedding in style, or even have a personalised banner to hang in the Great Hall, here at Newcastle Castle we will help you create a truly bespoke and unique experience by adding a little medieval magic to your special day!

We have two fully licensed rooms for ceremonies within the original gatehouse, The Harbottle Suite and The Museum Room in The Black Gate. We also have a beautiful medieval Chapel, and the Great Hall in the Castle Keep itself where you could have a more personal, rustic ceremony or celebration with loved ones.

When you hire the Castle, you will have access to the whole building, so you and your guests will be able to explore and enjoy all four floors of the Castle Keep, including the roof, which has stunning views across Newcastle, Gateshead and the Tyne valley. Newcastle Castle is a blank canvas venue, which gives you the flexibility to bring in any external suppliers you choose to have your day, your way (DJ, bands, caterers, pop-up bar etc.) and there are no hidden charges.

Customer Reviews

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone at the Castle Keep for helping us create such an amazing memorable day. It was such a pleasure dealing with all of you over the last year, and we just loved every minute of the day.
