overview

All of its wonderful galleries can be hired for evening entertainment and hospitality and it makes a stunning setting for a variety of corporate and private events.

Designed by Oliver, Leeson and Wood in 1899, the Great Hall is a magnificent wood panelled and tiled room. It has beautiful lanterns added in the Art deco era and wonderful decorative metal arches. It provides a truly stunning setting for a wide range of daytime and evening events such as dinners, conferences, public and private exhibitions and larger meetings.

Guests can dine alongside the stunning 35m long Turbinia, once the fastest ship in the world, or perhaps gather for drinks here before dinner in the Great Hall.

Why not hold your pre-dinner drinks reception in the fascinating Story of the Tyne gallery? This wonderful gallery boasts a unique display of ship models showcasing 150 years of shipbuilding.

Our Science Maze gallery is packed with interactive displays relating to science and engineering.
