Built way back in the 14th century Lumley Castle is now one of the region’s most versatile event spaces. A popular choice for weddings and when you see the setting you will understand why! Located just off the A1 and overlooking the River Wear Lumley Castle is an ideal getaway for a romantic break located not too far from the historic streets of Durham.
The castle has dominated the County Durham landscape for almost 600 years and is surrounded by beautiful greenery and parklands. With an onsite Hotel and a restaurant that’s delivers time and time again is Lumley Castle the finest castle in the region?
The accommodation at the castle is grand in every form with names such as Thomas Lumley who was once the owner of the castle back in 1421. There is also The Castle Keep suite, The Earl of Somerset, The Sir Ralph Suite with its four poster bed and Narnia style wardrobe.
