Stand out from the crowd and let The Customs House make your wedding day reception extra special.

If you’re planning a wedding or civil partnership reception with a difference, come to The Customs House and be one of the first to take advantage of our unique and original venue! Our recently renovated and distinctive listed building is situated on the banks of the River Tyne, making The Customs House an ideal setting for your wedding reception. Imagine how amazing your wedding photos will look.

When you choose to host your reception with us, we’ll not only ensure a memorable location, our friendly, helpful and approachable staff will go to extraordinary lengths to ensure all your wishes are met, giving you a truly unique experience.

The rich, vibrant history of The Customs House in South Shields has made it a significant and imposing part of both the visual and cultural landscape of South Tyneside. We’ve been at the heart of our bustling community since it was built in the 1860s. The Customs House has undergone a huge transformation from its days as a major port - it now exists as a vibrant arts centre and could soon be host to your wedding!
