There is nowhere quite like Woodhorn. Here, listed colliery buildings combine with cutting edge 21st century architecture bordered by a country park.

Woodhorn retains the iconic silhouettes of its mining history: the giant pit wheel, a scheduled ancient monument, is now complemented by the strikingly beautiful modern Cutter building. The setting makes a breath taking backdrop for photography, ensuring cherished memories that last a lifetime.

Woodhorn interiors offer the flexibility to create the effect you want. Each room is
extremely versatile and can be elegantly dressed for a ceremony, arranged for an intimate sit down meal or transformed into an atmospheric dance floor. There are three rooms licensed for civil ceremonies:

• The Workshop Galleries – Retaining dramatic, attractive features from its colliery workshop past,
these galleries offer characterful and flexible space, ideal for larger weddings. 

• The Kilbourn Room – An intimate, modern space. The walls are hung with the beautiful, evocative prints by Pitmen Painter, Oliver Kilbourn.

• The Winding Room – A spacious, light top floor room with delightful views to the Cheviot Hills in the west and the sea to the east.
