Laing Art Gallery
The Laing Art Gallery is the region’s premier historic gallery with an exceptional collection of both national and international significance. Home to an impressive permanent collection of works by local artists such as John Martin alongside nationally renowned figures such as JMW Turner and Edward Lear, the gallery hosts a changing programme of temporary exhibitions. Visitors can enjoy events from leading contemporary artists and fun activities for families, and you can visit the Laing’s shop for exclusive gifts.
What it is: A sophisticated venue offering a range of spaces, including the stunning Marble Hall and 18th century gallery. All of the Laing’s galleries are licensed to hold civil ceremonies, and with a capacity of 80 guests, are ideally suited to an exclusive and intimate occasion. The Laing café, with its magnificent marble statue, offers a beautiful backdrop for a wedding breakfast.
Why we love it: Grand and luxurious, The Laing Art Gallery will make you feel like royalty for the day (which is how it should be!)
