Over rolling hills, around low-slung mountains, and through delightful market towns with cobbled streets, you'll discover the beauty and charm of Durham County. Don't let this North East English county's sleepy reputation fool you. Durham is home to many wonderful sights and activities, as well as many beautiful venues.

Durham County is named after the historic city of Durham at its center. This lively college town has history to spare and many beautifully cared for buildings that have lasted through the centuries, including Durham University, which used to be a castle! The big town of Darlington offers friendly faces and grand hotels, while smaller market towns like Sedgefield are home to hidden gems that might just turn out to be the perfect location for your fairytale wedding.

The county of Durham has many beautiful and unique wedding venues to offer for those willing to take the time to look. Start your search in the city of Durham, where you'll find the most available choices. Here, you have your pick of grand, historic hotels that can host a party of nearly any size, or smaller, boutique inns that can provide personal service to more intimate gatherings.

If your wedding budget planner tells you that simple and low-cost is the right option for your big day, consider a conference centre or even a local restaurant.

Looking for a truly unique Durham wedding venue? Expand your search to the countryside. Here, you might discover a historic mansion that once hosted kings or even a glorious castle where you'll feel like a prince or princess during your unforgettable wedding.

What Questions to Ask During Your Durham Wedding Venue Tour

If you've fallen in love with a wedding venue in Durham, the next step on your road to commitment is to schedule a venue tour. This is your opportunity to meet the venue staff that will be instrumental in pulling off your big day without a hitch.

Bring lots of questions! The more you learn, the more information you'll have to make the right venue choice. First and foremost, ask about the venue's capacity, so you can make sure it will fit your party. Next, you need to know the cost of the venue and the down payment. You'll also want to know if you can bring your own vendors, what time they can begin setting up, and if there is a curfew when the party has to stop. If this is a larger venue, it's also important to know if they've already booked other events that could compete with your own.

Once you've chosen a wonderful Durham wedding venue, your matrimonial work has just begun. Keep track of it all with our wedding to-do list, and then start planning your guest list. Next, it's time to find vendors and put up your wedding website. It's a lot to do, but at WeddingWire, we're here to help!
