Ushaw College has opened the doors of its historic estate to wedding receptions. The gardens, parkland and spectacular architecture present picturesque surroundings and offer the perfect place for you to celebrate your special day. Although there is an underlying sense of tranquillity to the area, Ushaw offers tastefully incorporated modern facilities to all of our visitors.
The Francis Thompson Room is a perfect place for a drinks reception, and The Parlour is a room well suited to a sumptuous Wedding Breakfast. The gorgeous Refectory is a unique and beautiful setting for your reception dinner and becomes an unforgettable backdrop for the party after. The hall can seat up to 160 guests, and all dietary requirements are easily catered for. We also have 49 en-suite guest rooms, so you won't have far to travel.
