Our Location

Who wouldn’t want to get married in a castle? Well if you book your wedding venue at Walworth Castle, you can get married in our picturesque castle, making your wedding day unforgettable. Our 12-century castle is located on the outskirts of Darlington in the North East of England. We have stunning countryside views with 18 acres of lawns and woodlands to host your wedding. We are easily accessible from the North and South via the M1 and have local rail and airport links for guests coming from further afield.

Exclusive Wedding Venue Use

Unlike some of the other local venues, we only host ONE wedding per day. This helps to ensure that you get the best service and attention on your big day. We find that this eliminates any rushing around and our guests can relax in the thought of knowing they don’t have to abide by a strict schedule due to a wedding taking place after theirs. You can also go one step further and book the entire hotel in its entirety for you and your guests exclusively. If you would like to book the hotel as your exclusive wedding venue, contact us for prices.
