St Chad’s is set in the shadow of Durham Cathedral and fronts onto North Bailey, a medieval street. Beyond the charming gardens, where the peaceful serenity makes it hard to believe you are in the heart of Durham, the land falls away into the wooded gorge of the River Wear which flows round this high peninsula, once the citadel of the Prince Bishops.
The beautiful setting of our picture perfect gardens, where your guests can enjoy a drinks reception on the lawn, along with exclusive use of the Moulsdale Hall, the Senior Common Room with garden terrace & the splendid glass covered Cassidy Quad make an ideal setting for your wedding celebration. You will receive a professional, friendly and caring service from our staff who will endeavour to ensure that your special day is everything you could wish for. Yours will be the only wedding on that day meaning you will have our undivided attention throughout.
Our Head Chef and his team provide excellent cuisine, giving variety and style to all our dishes. We have packages available however, we delight in creating bespoke menus to suit every palate, style and budget.
We are also able to offer competitively priced B&B accommodation for your guests.

From the first time we visited the venue, we knew St. Chad's was the venue where we wanted to get married.Sent on 15/09/2021
Located in the heart of Durham, right next to the Cathedral, it's an absolute hidden gem. The venue itself is full of character, with a beautiful, glass roofed quad, and the grounds are absolutely stunning, complete with a lovely little chapel.
From the first time we met them, Lesley and Darryl were always on hand to answer any queries, and put our minds at rest, and they (along with all of the other staff on the day) helped our wedding day run absolutely perfectly.
Every single one of our guests commented on how absolutely stunning the venue looked and how incredible the food was.
We would 100% recommend St. Chad's as a perfect wedding venue.
