Hulne Abbey is a truly exclusive and enchanting wedding venue, nestled on a hillside in the private parklands of the Duke of Northumberland. Surrounded by medieval walls and founded in the 13th century as a Carmelite monastery, Hulne Abbey is a beautifully secluded venue for your celebrations.

The Abbey is licensed for wedding ceremonies, providing an atmospheric setting for your vows. With ruined walls and archways leading to hidden alcoves, there is plenty for guests to explore while enjoying drinks and canapes, and many opportunities for some breathtaking photographs.

Available from April - September, you are welcome to host your reception in the grounds, with ample space for a marquee or rustic tipi. You can hire the abbey for the whole day and have the run of the grounds until midnight, allowing you to enjoy the warmth of the afternoon sun through to the dark Northumbrian night skies.

The layout of Hulne Abbey is flexible, allowing your celebrations to be as intimate or extensive as you imagined, comfortably accommodating anything up to 500 guests.
