Weddings at Lancaster Castle

Lancaster Castle is now a licensed wedding venue.

Couples can get married in the spectacular setting of the Shire Hall, a glorious Georgian court building notable for its extensive collection of heraldry.

Ceremonies can also take place in the spooky surroundings of the castle's Old Cells, the medieval Hadrian's Tower or the Barrister's Library, which occupies the site where the infamous Lancashire Witchcraft Trials took place in 1612.
