The Venue

CROOK HALL & GARDENS
Frankland Lane, Sidegate, Durham, DH1 5SZ

Crook Hall, a Medieval Manor house built circa 1217, is one of the oldest inhabited houses in Durham City. Home to the Bell Family since 1995, the Medieval Hall merges into a Jacobean Manor house which in turn merges into a Georgian Town house reflecting its development over the centuries that it has stood beside the River Wear. The gardens are a combination of new and old, while some have been around for centuries, others are a more recent addition. There are nine areas of the garden to see and we encourage you to take some time to explore.

Wedding Gifts

We’ve been planning hard and spending money for a good year or two.

Your financial donation would truly mean a lot,
So thank you for contributing to our honeymoon pot!
