Venue hire at Norfolk museums

Find the perfect venue for your wedding or event at one of the following Norfolk museums:

Norwich Castle

From the imposing flint lined Norman Keep to the relaxed style of the Benefactor’s Room, Norfolk’s county museum offers a host of exclusive options and inimitable spaces that are sure to enhance any occasion.

Strangers’ Hall

With a suite of period rooms, Tudor Great Hall and Elizabethan Knot Garden, this hidden gem, just minutes from Norwich city centre offers beautiful historic spaces both inside and out.

Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse

Set in 50 acres of tranquil rolling countryside in the heart of Norfolk, this fantastic site offers many options for hire, including the atmospheric old chapel with its decorative brickwork, leaded windows and wooden pews, a Victorian School Room, Workhouse Boardroom and Keppel’s lodge, a newly built space crafted from green oak and glass. There’s even a traditional working farm with rare breed animals.

Time and Tide Museum

Converted from the former Tower Fish Curing Works in 2004, Time and Tide tells the story of Great Yarmouth, a town built on the bounties of the sea. Enjoy all the benefits of a modern meeting room in a building filled with thousands of years of history.

Elizabethan House Museum

If you’re looking for a wedding venue steeped in history, Elizabethan House is the perfect location. Built around 1596, Elizabethan House has been home to prosperous merchants and prominent locals; it’s even said to be the setting for one of the most important meetings in British history, one that decided the fate of King Charles I.

The Tolhouse Gaol

If you’re after a truly unique place to say ‘I do’ - look no further. One of the oldest prisons in the country, The Tolhouse Gaol has played host to witch trials, pirates and smugglers.

It was a thrill to handle Castle Acre Service Book, so obviously used - candle grease and thumb prints - by monkish hands so long ago.
