Grey Street Hotel Newcastle wedding venue
The Grey Street Hotel is a small boutique wedding venue, located in the heart of bustling Newcastle City Centre.
Grey Street was built in the 1830's by Richard Grainger, and was named after the Prime Minister Earl Grey, whose statue stands at the top of the street.
The Grey Street Hotel started out as a bank, but was also a Newsagents, a restaurant and a nightclub, before it was converted into a hotel in 2005. In 2013 it was acquired by the Malhotra Group. They already own numerous care homes, banks, pubs and other leisure properties in Newcastle. They are planning an ambitious refurbishment of the Grey Street Hotel in 2016.
Weddings at the Grey Street Hotel
The Grey Street Hotel is a unique, boutique wedding venue in Newcastle.
It is located in the heart of Newcastle City Centre, on Grey Street, a Georgian terrace which is recognised as one of the best streets in the world. The rooms are currently decorated in a minimalist, contemporary fashion. This fits it's urban location quite well.
Grey Street Hotel can accommodate only small, intimate weddings of up to 80 guests.
The hotel has a small footprint, but a lot of floors, so it is a bit of a maze inside. The ceremony room is quite small and dark, and gets very hot when filled to capacity!
Wedding Photography at the Grey Street Hotel
The Grey Street Hotel is very limited for wedding photography on it's premises. It owns no gardens beyond it's building, and the building is used by other guests staying in it's hotel rooms, so you won't have exclusive use of its larger public areas.
As the hotel is located in Newcastle City Centre, it is easy to get to prominent local attractions such as the Quayside, though, so if you are prepared to walk a bit, you have a good range of urban options for bride and groom portraits.
- Interesting location in Newcastle City Centre, right in the heart of the city
- Good value wedding packages
- Only suitable for smaller weddings of up to 80 guests
- Very limited options for photography unless you are willing to walk around the city centre
