Full Description
  • We would be delighted if you decided to hold your special day, here at Crook Hall & Gardens, Durham City, North East- this is a very beautiful, exclusive (and romantic!) place to get married. You and your guests would have exclusive use of the Hall and Gardens during this time. We are able to offer ceremonies both inside our Grade I listed Medieval Hall or outside in our Wedding Gazebo which is situated in the beautiful gardens. We are licensed for up to 80 guests. We also have a ceremony only option. This is on Thursdays. While some of our couples are working with a very limited budget others have more flexibility, so we will work with you to make sure that you get exactly what you want: We don’t offer packages, all our weddings are exclusively tailor made for each couple. We are very happy to help you plan your day – because of the historic layout of the Hall and Gardens there are numerous ideas to make your exclusive wedding day really magical…. candle lit ceremony in the Medieval Hall or in the beautiful gardens, champagne by the Moat Pool, speeches in the Jacobean Room, photographs in the Secret Walled Garden, tea in the courtyard, drinks in the orchard, a wishing tree in the wooded glade……the possibilities are endless. If you would like further information or would like to call round and discuss possibilities just get in touch. We do our wedding show rounds during the times in which we are open to our visitors and guests.
