Situated four miles from an airport and eight miles from the centre of Newcastle, Kirkley Hall welcomes business and leisure travellers alike. Being one of Northumberland College's campuses, with over 50 years of experience in agricultural and land-based training, the 17th-century interiors of this Grade II-listed building can accommodate to an array of functions, including weddings and conferences. Guests can also wander through a walled garden, or visit the Zoological Gardens, which feature a vast collection of animals. The Orangery Tea Room serves a range of snacks and light lunches such as soups, jacket potatoes, panini and afternoon tea, while play and picnic areas are also available.
