Important notice

Due to crucial restoration works on the property, we will be unable to take bookings for weddings until 2017, for 2018 ceremonies. We have been fortunate enough to receive a substantial grant with which we can begin these works, but this funding has a time frame and so work needs to begin this year. The work we are doing initially is a series of trials which will inform the later works in 2016 and 2017. This work will involve emptying rooms of their collections and the erection of scaffolding around some parts of the building. All of this is for the long-term benefit of the building and hopefully in the future you will be able to see the effect the positive effect the work has on Lindisfarne.

A romantic venue

Lindisfarne Castle is licensed to hold weddings and every year dozens of couples take their vows one of its intimate, romantic rooms over looking Holy Island and the Northumberland Coast.

You get the place to yourselves for 2 hours and, as most ceremonies last about 20 minutes, you can enjoy the Castle privately with up to 30 guests.

A private ceremony

Availability is limited at Lindisfarne; this is due to public opening and of course, the tides, but only makes a wedding here more special.

If you have a date in mind give us a call on 01289 389902 or
