Newcastle Castle

Newcastle Castle, The Black Gate, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 1RQ



Newcastle Castle is a venue that gives you the opportunity to host your wedding event in one of the North East’s most iconic and historic buildings. There have been very few alterations to the Castle Keep since Edward I spent Christmas here in 1292!

The Castle has photo opportunities aplenty giving you some truly unique wedding photographs that you will treasure forever.

We are a dry hire venue so with our fully exclusive packages our castle becomes your castle! We pride ourselves on the freedom we give you to use the Castle as you wish and you have the flexibility to use whichever suppliers you choose.

The venue consists of the Black Gate, a 13th century gatehouse which houses the Harbottle Suite, our licensed room for civil ceremonies; and the Castle Keep, which consists of four floors plus the Roof with some of the most stunning views across the city and Tyne Valley. On the second floor of the Castle Keep is the large and atmospheric Great Hall. While the ground-floor consists of the Gaol which is ideal for drinks receptions.

We have wedding packages to suit all budgets, from ceremony only through to a fully exclusive package where we close our castle especially for you!

The team at Newcastle Castle will work with you to make sure your event runs as smoothly as possible. To find out more about our packages or to arrange a visit, please do get in touch.

We look forward to welcoming you to Newcastle Castle very soon!
