Walworth Castle Tops the Table for Weddings in Darlington
The team at Walworth Castle hotel near Darlington have good reason to celebrate as they top the table of most popular wedding venues in the borough for the second year running.
Councillor Gerald Lee, Darlington Borough Council member for Heighington and Coniscliffe Ward, which includes Walworth, met with the staff and owners of Walworth Castle to congratulate them on their success.
“Well done to the team at Walworth Castle. It is a wonderful and unusual venue and a fantastic achievement to top the tables twice in two years.
“With ten licensed venues across the borough, including the Register Office in the Town Hall, Darlington Hippodrome and Head of Steam Museum, Darlington has a great choice of wedding venues to suit all tastes and budgets.
“With an average wedding costing somewhere near £20,000, they play an important role in the local economy, generating employment, welcoming visitors to our town and also supporting the many suppliers involved in the wedding business. The success of Walworth Castle Hotel confirms that Darlington is a place where people want to live, work and also visit and celebrate a life event.”
Owners of Walworth Castle Hotel Chris and Rachel Swain added:
“We are really proud to receive this award and the recognition of the hard work and achievements of the Walworth Castle Hotel team.
“Of the many of the couples who choose to celebrate their wedding day with us, some are local couples but many are from the wider area. It is great that they have chosen Walworth Castle Hotel and, of course, Darlington as a place to celebrate their special day. Couples often return to us to celebrate special and family occasions. We are hoping to build on this success for 2020 and for many years to come”.
