If you’re searching for a romantic setting for your big day, look no further than Durham. This beautiful county boasts idyllic countryside, a stunning coastline and an enchanting city, where a host of historic, modern and unique wedding venues are waiting to welcome you and your guests.

For the ultimate fairytale wedding, it’s sure to be love at first sight when you encounter one of Durham’s magical castles or romantic country house hotels. Those seeking the tranquillity of a spa retreat, the elegance of a boutique hotel or the cosy sophistication of a country inn, however, will also have no problem finding their perfect match.

And for a location as unique as you, Durham itself will not disappoint. The county is home to many quirky venues and breathtaking natural landscapes, along with museums and galleries where you can be married surrounded by masterpieces and historic objects.

The county is also a great choice for minimoons and honeymoons, with its award-winning hotels, cosy cottages and romantic glamping pods. Stag and hen parties, meanwhile, will discover luxurious spas, exhilarating outdoor pursuits and a bustling city with quirky bars and restaurants.
