3. The Priory, Tynemouth

Yes, I’m talking about one of Newcastle’s crown jewels – the iconic Priory that stands tall along the coastline. If you’re craving a touch of drama with your sea views, you’re in for a treat. This place has seen it all over its 2000-year history – from an Iron Age settlement to a monastery and coastal defense, and now, you can add your own history. The Priory hosts outdoor marquee weddings through April to October, taking over the entire grounds. It’s like a wedding wonderland with a bit of everything – ancient monastery ruins, large lawns and and sweeping coastal views. You could even take a stroll just outside to Tynemouth High Street or King Eddies Bay for some extra-awesome photo ops. Just imagine a summers evening celebrating your wedding here – incredible!
