Colman Gallery, Norwich Castle
From 16 September 2019 until Autumn 2024 all ceremonies in Norwich Castle will take place in the Colman Gallery.
This is because the Benefactors Room is closed while the Norwich Castle renovation project takes place. Find out more about the Norwich Castle renovation project.
If your ceremony is taking place before Autumn 2024, it will be held in the Colman Gallery. All ceremonies after this date will be in the Benefactors Room as the Colman Gallery will no longer be available for ceremonies.
The capacity of the Colman Gallery is for 50 people. This does not include the couple and both registrars.
If you are having a photographer, they will be included in your guest numbers.
Outdoor ceremonies are not offered from this location.

During the Castle renovation there is room for a ceremony car, however this should not be larger than a people carrier because space is restricted. There are plenty of public car parks close by including Castle Mall, for guests.
Photographs can only be taken inside the ceremony room. You won't have access to other areas of the Museum for photos. No flash photography is allowed in the ceremony room due to potential damage to the artwork. You're welcome to use the Castle gardens. There are some interesting locations in the grounds, including an open-air theatre space.
Animals are not allowed into the Castle, with the exception of service dogs.
The Colman Gallery is located on the ground floor and is fully accessible. There is an outside lift from the gardens up to the front door or the Castle.
