Discover weddings with a difference

Getting married? We’d like to propose something a little different. Our magnificent Victorian building is filled to the soaring rafters with the achievements of the Tyneside people – so why not fill it with your friends and family to celebrate your special day? Greet your guests at the Turbinia herself, and gather for a celebratory drink before moving on to the museum’s Great Hall. The Great Hall offers opulence on a grand scale with wood-panelled walls, and glazed tiles, over which a series of intricate metal arches soar towards the ceiling. This is a stunning setting for wedding ceremonies, wedding breakfasts and evening receptions. You can also make use of the science maze, jam packed with scientific puzzles and curiosities or the Story of the Tyne for drinks receptions for small (but perfectly formed) celebrations.
