Blackfriars was established in 1239 as a Dominican friary and remains one of the jewels in Newcastle’s medieval crown. Whilst its horseshoe of stone buildings surround a sheltered courtyard, its peaceful and tranquil location belies its hidden location right in the heart of the city. It’s a truly unique venue providing the perfect picturesque backdrop for a beautiful wedding or civil partnership.
Blackfriars is approved by Newcastle City Council for marriages and civil partnerships so you can enjoy both your ceremony and reception in one place. We have dedicated wedding coordinators to help you plan your day and take care of all your wants and needs so you don’t have to worry.
We are able to accommodate most wedding formats. Just imagine the ceremony of your dreams in our ornate Banquet Hall or unique Tasting Room, followed by a relaxed Champagne reception in the sheltered courtyard or historic Parlour Bar before heading back into the Banquet Hall for a delicious and memorable wedding breakfast and evening party. Blackfriars really does have it all and is the perfect venue for your big day!
We have a number of spaces to hire for your ceremony, reception drinks, meal and evening event.
