We make dreams happen and work tirelessly to ensure perfection is delivered right from the start. We even offer venue exclusivity, so you can have the entire venue just for those near and dear to you.

Our efficient, friendly team and delicious catering will make memories of your day at The Town House ones to treasure. Whether you choose to say your ‘I Do’s’ at the local registry office or local church, our self-contained venue, with your own bar and restaurant, can host your wedding breakfast and evening entertainment for up to 30 people.

One fabulous bonus of holding your celebration at The Town House is that you are able to book all eight bedrooms in the hotel building itself for you and your guests. So why not invite them to stay at The Town House for an indulgent mini-break right in the heart of the city, with Durham Cathedral and the 11th-Century Castle within 10 minutes’ walk away.
