Newcastle Racecourse is a stunning and unique wedding venue that many happy couples have enjoyed before, including legendary boxer Muhammad Ali who renewed his wedding vows in South Shields in 1977 and joined us after for the reception celebrations. You can still follow in his footsteps, as we are open for weddings. We are currently only able to host 15 guests, but this guidance does change, so please check here for the latest Government guidance on weddings and civil ceremonies.
Registered for civil weddings and civil partnership ceremonies, there are plenty of suites to choose from that offer sensational views across High Gosforth Park. All our suites are big enough to accommodate socially distanced ceremonies and allow for different household bubbles. All whilst still in stunning surroundings and tranquil parkland.
Due to the scale of our venue, we are normally popular with Asian weddings. So it makes us extremely sad we cannot welcome large celebrations with the current guest limitations. However, our team is doing all they can to ensure our venue is ready to welcome you back as soon as it is safe to do so.
