Read on to find out more...

Langley Castle has been named the UK’s 'Most Romantic Hotel' in the Luxury Lifestyle Magazine readers’ awards, scooping this most coveted of awards on the basis of public votes.

We were shortlisted along with 29 other hotels, before reigning triumphant in the fiercely competitive category all hotels long to win.  We also came second in the ‘Best Boutique Hotel’ category, in which 20 hotels had been shortlisted.

The award is tremendous news for Langley Castle, which is renowned for its exquisite weddings, both fairy-tale castle affairs and themed Game of Thrones-style.  

Those seeking a romantic weekend away should also make Langley Castle the number one hotel on their wish-list, to have the love-fuelled experience of staying in a castle room complete with four-poster bed, romantic window seat and little touches that have no equal, thanks to Langley's unique ambience. 

The stellar news comes at a time when Langley Castle is already seeing a boom in wedding enquiries, following the castle wedding marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Castle weddings are definitely back in vogue and the number one choice for those marrying over the next two years.

Langley's general manager, Carla Robinson, says, "We are finding that couples are shunning weddings in manufactured environments and looking for a venue with authenticity, classic style and sense of place within the landscape.  They are also wanting to personalise the wedding in unique ways, rather than doing what everyone else has done, setting the trend, rather than following it.

"We are ecstatic at having been named 'Most Romantic Hotel', which has already generated wedding enquiries from couples wishing to marry at a venue with a compelling sense of love filling the rooms within its six century-old, seven-feet thick walls.  The fact that it was the love of our customers that brought this award to our door, through public votes, is even more special, as is the fact that these people are discerning appreciators of true luxury.

If you have already been to Northumberland, or the North East, you will already know what a wonderful part of the country it is!  If you have never visited, then this will be the best time to take a short break away, as the whole region is gearing up for an unforgettable show. Everyone is invited and everyone can play a part.
The Great Exhibition of the North 2018 is a three-month celebration of the North of England’s pioneering spirit and the impact of our inventors, artists and designers.
This will be one of the biggest events in England this year and will be packed with amazing exhibits, live performances, displays of innovation, new artworks and magical experiences.

Spurred on by the Great Exhibition of the North 2018, Northumberland County Council is also bringing together, for the first time, a diverse range of summer activities under Great Northumberland 2018 which will see 56 days of arts, culture and heritage events celebrating the county of Northumberland.  A variety of the county’s best-loved visitor attractions will play host to events, including Lindisfarne Castle, Cragside, Vindolanda, Cherryburn and many more.

Langley Castle is perfectly located to explore and enjoy all of these fantastic events, with many locations only a short drive away.  So if you are looking for a family retreat this summer, with lots going on, then look no further!
