Our main showcase function room is the elegant Great Hall, with a Regency-decorated ceiling and west facing windows which overlook the Abbey grounds. It can seat up to 120 wedding guests for a meal, and there’s plenty of room for dancing later on.

The Prior’s Hall, Wilfrid Room and Etheldreda Room, can accommodate between 40 to 80 wedding guests. These rooms, each with its own unique character and atmosphere, would be perfect for you if you’re looking for a smaller and less formal wedding party.  Our fully stocked bar is located in the Wilfrid room, which adjoins the Great Hall, and this is our most popular combination of function rooms for receptions and evening wedding parties.

If you are looking for just an evening wedding party with a buffet, for bookings of over 50 guests, we dont make a charge for any room hire, meaning you could occupy the Great Hall including an evening buffet for around £1000.  We even offer corkage so you can bring your own wine and fizz!  

We would be delighted to host your special day at our wonderful wedding reception venue, and for more information about our current wedding packages and offers please contact us on (01434) 611 904 or events@hexhamabbey.org.uk
