It is said that there is no finer venue in the North East for weddings than the Great Hall and Senate Rooms of Durham Castle.  The Great Hall at the Castle is one of the largest and most impressive of its kind in the country.  Dating back to 1284 it is 45 feet high and over 100 feet long and can comfortably accommodate 80 to 200 guests.  The staff have a wealth of experience catering for the most prestigious events, ensuring that the quality of service will match the unrivalled setting.  The present Castle began in 1072 as a simple defensive mound commissioned by William the Conqueror and constructed under the supervision of Waltheof, the Earl of Northumberland, to defend the peninsula formed by the meander in the River Wear. Bishop Walcher built a hall on the site of the present Great Hall, together with the Undercroft and Norman Chapel.  The Undercroft now serves as the student common room and bar.
