Lovely venue for a wedding, the room upstairs is well laid out, good choice of drinks, and the room for the ceremony/music downstairs was really lovely. Nice private venue in a public park.

This is the most magical venue for a special wedding. The historic building is beautiful and the setting in York’s Museum Gardens and adjacent to the River Ouse is a sublime. I’d certainly recommend this venue for any special celebration. Wonderful!
