Located in the city centre of historic York, The Guildhall boasts picturesque views over the River Ouse and York Minster. Complete with spacious, lavishly decorated rooms and an elegant walled courtyard, it makes for the perfect, romantic setting for your wedding celebrations.

The 15th Century, Grade 1 listed Guildhall maintains much of its original charm and character - including the Main Hall's beautifully restored oak pillars - which will provide a captivating backdrop for your special day.

Our dedicated chef’s produce an array of locally sourced menus to suit all tastes. However, if you have something particular in mind, we're more than happy to work with you on a bespoke menu.

Whilst we're not licensed for civil ceremonies, there's a host of licensed venues in the heart of York, including the marvellous Mansion House, just a stone's throw away.
