Woodhorn Museum, in Ashington, is Northumberland’s largest museum and a truly unique venue for your wedding. The venue combines the North East’s industrial heritage with striking modern architecture and design for a distinct and interesting setting.
Woodhorn has preserved its mining history and still features its original giant pitwheel which, in wonderful contrast to the modern Cutter building, provides a stunning backdrop for your photos. You can take in all of the intricacies of the remarkable building from our extensive lawns.
We are licensed to hold your civil ceremony in our wonderful Workshop Galleries, which boasts stunning original features from its colliery past. The Workshop Galleries offers space and flexibility for your celebrations and can be elegantly dressed to suit your ceremony, formal meal or evening reception.
Woodhorn can cater for weddings with up to 100 guests, treating each person to a delightful dining experience. Bespoke menus can be created by our fantastic caterers to suit your personal tastes and budget. Our food is freshly prepared, beautifully presented and truly delicious.
If required, we can also help you with your preparations. From recommending suppliers to assisting with arrangements, we can help as much as you need.

The team at Woodhorn made our big day perfect. Not just is it a stunning venue with all you could wish for photo opportunities, they also treat you like VIP's from booking, prep and on the day. Nicola helped us decide and plan all we needed and it went so smoothly.Sent on 31/03/2017
On the day it was lovely sunshine, we captured many sunny pictures, creating a stunning photo album. They offered a huge selection of packages and everything can be adapted to your needs and budget. We can't thank Woodhorn Museum enough for helping us create a day we and our guests will never forget.
