About Hexham Abbey

Beaumont Street, Hexham
Northumberland, NE46 3NB

Welcome to Hexham Abbey, an historic and beautiful venue located in the bustling market town of Hexham, Northumberland.  With over 1300 years of history, the Abbey is a wonderful choice for couples looking for something extra special for their wedding day.

We welcome couples of all faiths and none, you don’t have to get married in the Abbey itself to host your reception with us. Our civil ceremony partner is the beautiful Hexham House which is within a bouquet’s throw across the gardens of the Abbey. 

We offer a selection of stunning function rooms and give you full flexibility with your options, whether you want a small or large celebration, informal or formal. The team at Hexham Abbey are happy to accommodate any specific requests or requirements, meaning you are not restricted to a set package, nor minimum spends.

The venue also has some marvellous outdoor spaces, creating the perfect environment for your wedding photography.

The Great Hall is our main showcase setting, a former Georgian ballroom featuring an intricate ceiling design and five large west-facing windows overlooking the Abbey Grounds. It can comfortably seat up to 110 guests for the wedding breakfast and is turned around for the evening’s entertainment, with our outdoor spaces and other function rooms utilised as needed. All our functions rooms are linked, meaning larger celebrations can fill the entire venue with a capacity of up to 200 guests.

We would be delighted to speak to you further on how we can add your wedding celebration to over 1300 years of history here at Hexham Abbey.

Fantastic Venue
Venue Service

By Dan and Emma Rogers, on 19 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 07 Jul 2018

We cannot thank this venue and staff enough - what an amazing day had by all including ourselves and guests! The flexibility of the packages and room layouts meant we were able to have a "flowing informal reception" rather than your standard seating plan sit down meal. Every member of staff was so helpful and helped make our day so perfect. Special shout out to Lucy Orton, Owen Mills and Caretaker Jeremy who worked their socks off. Cannot recommend this venue enough!

Stunning setting, and an extremely flexible venue!
Venue Service

By Sarah and Pierre-Yves, on 17 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 19 May 2018

We could not have dreamed of a better wedding! The setting of the Abbey is absolutely beautiful, and the huge advantage is the flexibility that the venue offers. The Abbey has a highly affordable wedding package with everything that you could need, but we were able to adapt it entirely to suit us. We worked with the Abbey to bring in our own caterers, bring our own wine and even operate a token system for the bar. They accommodated all of our requests and were so open and helpful. Now living abroad, all the organisation of the day was done in two meetings face to face and otherwise by email, so it is credit to the Abbey for how well everything went. We were able to decorate the room the night before, and then just trusted the staff at the Abbey on the day. Everything went so smoothly on the day, so we were really relaxed and could make the most of our day. Beautiful setting for welcome drinks outside and photos! If you are looking for a stunning setting, where you can work with the venue to bring a unique touch to the day, then look no further than Hexham Abbey.

Brilliant Venue
Venue Service

By Lynne, on 15 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 02 Dec 2017

We had a brilliant evening. The venue is wonderful and it was all made possible by the Abbey team. Grateful thanks to the chef, kitchen helpers and waiters on, the bar staff, the caretaker and Jane and yourself. We will definitely be recommending the venue to our friends and all those you came to the party will have realised how good the venue is. In fact. one of the Morris dancers said, as a result of knowing where our party was going to be, suggested to her daughter that it would be lovely for her wedding in June and I believe came to see it and has booked it already. Many thanks again to you all

Thank you

I just wanted to drop you a quick line. I once again would like to thank you and your team for the hard work and professionalism put in to ensure Abigail and Dan’s reception ran so smoothly. Everything was perfect and certainly befitting the occasion at such a wonderful venue. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to other people interested in using your facilities. Many thanks. Kind Regards Eddie Guerin
