Hadrian’s Wall Gallery

About this space

Hadrian's Wall Gallery creates an exciting and unique atmosphere for ceremonies. You can even get married looking onto a T-rex! The gallery has an interactive model of the Wall which enables guests to discover the detailed history of this amazing fortification as well as finding out about all the forts, milecastles and associated museums that can be visited today.

For couples choosing to stay with us, why not host your wedding breakfast and/or evening reception  alongside an elephant and a great white shark in the fantastic, double height Living Planet Gallery

We also have the Special Exhibition Space, which is a large open plan room with fresh white walls and wooden floors. This space is a blank canvas ready to be dressed in a theme that represents you.
