Welcome to Walworth Castle Hotel. We are open for overnight stays, dining, celebrations and weddings.

Weddings at Walworth

We’ve mentioned this a few times previously on our website, but weddings at Walworth Castle are genuinely magical. Who wouldn’t want to get married at a 12-century castle surrounded by their nearest and dearest? We have one of the most stunning wedding venues in the North East of England, with stunning views of the countryside. The castle is a stone throw away from Darlington and is easily commutable from Durham, Newcastle and Teesside.

Regardless of the wedding venue, your upcoming nuptials can cost a lot of money. Due to the investment, you will make on the special day; you want to make sure that you are getting the highest levels of service and that all your needs are taken care of.

Unlike some other venues, we only host one wedding per day at Walworth Castle. We find that this helps to ensure that our team can give you their full attention and you don’t feel that we are under any external pressures to move things along quickly. If you book your wedding at Walworth Castle, you also have the option to book the castle as an exclusive wedding venue with no other guests at the hotel other than your wedding party.

Depending on the time of year you want to wed in, we have various wedding options available.

Wedding Celebrations

The perfect venue for a wedding in the North East, Walworth Castle’s Cardinals Court is the ideal setting for any wedding celebration.

Civil Marriages in the Ballroom

If you are looking for a location for a civil marriage, look not further than our stunning Ballroom. Walk down the aisle on the red carpet, surrounded by your guests and say your vows in front of your nearest and dearest.

Civil Partnerships

Walworth Castle is one of the most popular civil partnership venues in the North East. We have a licence to get married in our beautiful Ballroom, or outdoors in our ceremony garden, Lady Palmers Pavilion.

Outdoor Weddings

Perfect for summer weddings the recently installed Lady Palmers Pavillion is the ideal setting for an outdoor wedding. The surrounding natural foliage allows for a stunning backdrop for your big day. If by chance the weather isn’t favourable, we can move your party inside to the 16th-century Ballroom.

Twilight Weddings

If you have got married abroad or want to have a wedding celebration without the formality, you could book a twilight wedding celebration at Walworth Castle.

Dungeon Weddings

For those of you who are looking for something a little bit different, our intimate dungeon has the setting to really wow your wedding guests.

Exclusive Use

Who wouldn’t want the private use of a 12-century castle for their wedding party? Well at Walworth Castle you can book the entire castle and grounds for the exclusive use of your wedding. Your guests are only invited by personal invitation, making the hotel and the grounds your home for the wedding.
