Weddings at Tynemouth Priory and Castle

Hold your wedding at Tynemouth Priory and Castle on the coast of North East England. This historic site offers a fantastic location for a perfect outdoor marquee wedding ceremony or reception.

From its original beginnings as an Iron Age settlement, the site later became an Anglo-Saxon monastery, and more recently a royal castle and a coastal defence, this truly is an astonishing setting. You and your guests will be sure to enjoy the fantastic views overlooking the River Tyne and the North Sea.

We had the most fabulous day at Tynemouth Priory and Castle. We had always said 'wouldn't it be amazing to get married there' and from the moment we enquired to the end of our amazing day it was seamless.
Tynemouth has been a part of our relationship from the start and the backdrop of the priory and blank canvas to create our day was exactly as we envisaged. The English Heritage staff were simply amazing and on hand from start to finish to make our day run to perfection.
We simply had the best day, a wedding venue like no other and the most amazing memories.
