Types of ceremony venue

With over 70 to choose from, ranging from ancient castles to cosy hotels, Northumberland has the perfect venue for you. We have two different types of venues. Find out more below.
 

Register office

You can choose from our two register offices to hold your ceremony, both lie in the picturesque market towns of Alnwick and Morpeth.

Morpeth Town Hall

The newly refurbished Morpeth Town Hall is an impressive and popular venue for all the ceremonies we offer. The iconic building is located in the centre of Morpeth on the Market Place and was designed by Sir John Vanbrugh, famous for his work at Blenheim Palace, Castle Howard and Seaton Delaval Hall. The Ball Room holds up to 80 guests.

View our virtual tour of Morpeth Town Hall to see why it is so popular.
