Full Description
The magnificent Merchant Taylors’ Hall, nestled within the ancient walls of the City of York, is one of the most significant medieval buildings in this architecturally rich city. Built in 1415, the Hall has borne witness to centuries of history and been a place for York’s residents to congregate, feast, make music and make merry for more than 600 years. One of the Yorkshire Post's 20 most stunningly scenic wedding destinations in Yorkshire, the Hall is steeped in tradition, with medieval beams, a roaring fire in cooler months, and a magical atmosphere year-round, offering a romantic and unforgettable venue for your wedding celebrations. There’s a choice of spaces to accommodate 40 – 120 guests, a lovely garden available for photographs, your drinks reception or just for you and your guests to enjoy, and the option of ceremony & reception, or reception-only celebrations. Our caterers will create a bespoke buffet, set meal or banquet menu of delicious food and fine wines to enhance your special day, and there’s also a fully licensed bar offering real ales, pump beers, spirits and wines. Our city centre location is ideal, with some free on-site parking and much more available only 400 yards away. York train station is just a 15-minute walk, or short taxi journey, for your guests travelling from further afield.

A bride wearing bright orange Converse under a couture gown

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Historic, welcoming, flexible, romantic, magical

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

There are so many, but if we had to choose one, probably the porch in front of the ancient wooden door. It's amazing!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

That the profit we make doesn't go to faceless shareholders - but instead goes towards maintaining this amazing Grade 1 listed ancient building and providing financial support to young people in the fields of art, craftsmanship & music via the Company of Merchant Taylors in York
