Beyond expectation

The staff at beamish hall went over and above from the build up to night before all the way until they waved us off the next day.
Nothing was too much and they were all so pleasant to our guests.
The female manager and another lady were so lovely and the male manager who also served at the bar.
Thank you so so much

Best day of our lives

We had the most amazing wedding at Beamish hall and honestly couldn鈥檛 recommend the venue more. From start to finish the team were so friendly and helpful. On the day everything was so well organised and seamless. We were told where to go when and they managed everything. Having their on-site decorating team helped too, as they moved flowers between rooms so we didn鈥檛 need to worry about anything.
The venue itself was just perfect too. Such a lovely building. We had exclusive use so we鈥檙e able to use each of the 3 big function rooms, and it felt intimate but grand at the same time.
There鈥檚 also 40 bedrooms so although a few guests couldn鈥檛 book a room the majority were able to, and there鈥檚 a few hotels close by too. Although there are cheaper venues, I think it was very reasonable for what we got, and cheaper than a lot in the area.
Honestly couldn鈥檛 recommend it more x

Fabulous. Our Magical Winter Wonderland Wedding.

My husband and I had our wedding at Beamish in December 2023. It was a magical and beautiful day from start to finish, which would not have been possible without the amazing wedding team at Beamish. The team were kind, patient and helpful, every step of the way! No question was a silly question. Everything ran smoothly thanks to the wedding team. We would recommend any couple had their wedding at beamish. The food was gorgeous, all guests commented on how stunning the venue was and how kind the staff were. There is nothing the staff won鈥檛 do to ensure you have a day to remember.

Mr & Mrs Partis

We honestly can not thank Beamish Hall along with Lauren and the rest of the wedding team for making our day so perfect.. From setting our date there 2 years in advance we were made to feel special every time we visited or called with queries. The whole welcoming experience we received I can honestly say made our day run like a dream, making us feel truly amazing but all of our guests commented on what an overall Beamish wedding experience which was simply the best! In a heart beat we wish we coulld relive our day again back at Beamish Hall. We love revisiting Beamish Hall where the staff still remember us and our day which makes us feel honoured to have held our day there .

The dream wedding venue

We couldn鈥檛 recommend Beamish Hall highly enough. From the first time we looked round to the day after the wedding, we couldn鈥檛 fault Beamish Hall. All the staff were super friendly and attentive. Lauren answered all our questions at our first viewing and it was then that it was clear to us that this was the top venue in Durham and we had to book asap. At our final details appointment Mark made us confident that we were in safe hands. Everything was well organised and the wedding day ran like clockwork, we didn鈥檛 have to worry about anything! Thanks so much Beamish Hall!

Best day of our lives

From the very first meeting we could tell how professional and friendly the staff at Beamish Hall were. They made planning our day so easy and literally nothing was an issue or a problem. They were really accommodating and made sure we planned a day that suited us as a couple.
The food choices were all delicious and presented beautifully on the day.
The whole team were really helpful but our coordinator Lauren was a superstar!
On the day itself we were made to feel at ease and supported by everyone at the hotel making sure everything was delivered, set up, and ran to time. The different rooms we used as part of our Exclusive Use package meant each element of the wedding day had a different feel to it, and was decorated beautifully by Beamish Extras.
I honestly can鈥檛 recommend Beamish Hall enough as a wedding venue.
