The Castle View Suite

If you are looking for the best Wedding venues in Chester-le-street, then look no further than Chester-le-Street Cricket Club. It is the perfect venue for the most important day of your life! We are nestled in the centre of Chester-le-Street, with breathtaking views across our picturesque cricket ground. The stunning, fourteenth-century Lumley Castle stands proudly in the background, setting the scene for a wonderful day for you and your guests.

There’s the opportunity for you to take some great wedding day photographs from the balcony or anywhere around our ground to personalise your Cricket Club experience. An especially popular option is sipping Champagne by moonlight while enjoying fantastic views over to Lumley Castle. The castle looks spectacular when floodlit on an evening with the sparkling stars in the sky.

Now you know why it is called the Castle View Suite. Ideal for a reception dinner, the suite comprises an exclusive entrance foyer, a private bar, a full-length glass balcony and contemporary decoration.

The suite also includes a large adaptable seating space where you can have complete control over the seating arrangements. The scale of potential customisation doesn’t stop here, as you can also easily transform the room to make it fitting for the evening reception. The room can be equipped with full disco facilities that escape notice during the day but are much more conspicuous by night. It truly is one of the best Wedding reception venues in Chester-le-street!
