About Carlton Towers

Carlton Towers is a privately owned Victorian Gothic-style country house set amongst 250 acres of parkland in the beautiful Yorkshire landscape. Home to Lord and Lady Gerald Fitzalan Howard, Carlton Towers has been hosting weddings for over 30 years and has a reputation for ensuring that every detail is simply perfect.

Our stately home is licenced to perform civil ceremonies and can accommodate up to 170 guests from your ceremony and reception and 200 for the evening celebration.

We offer exclusive use of the venue comprising three grand state rooms, 16 individually and beautifully designed character bedrooms, a minstrel’s gallery, bar, lobby, dance area and garden. From glamorous weddings through to the serene, our exclusive offering can be tailored to your specific taste.

The three staterooms provide the most delightful ambience for any wedding reception and span 150 foot in length. The house offers ideal backdrops for photograph opportunities, both inside and out.

Carlton Towers prides itself on its varied and extensive a la carte wedding menu, but if required, our chef and catering partners can work with you on a menu of your own creation if you so desire.

Your wedding will be organised and coordinated by our experienced Events team who will carefully discuss your plans with you and check that every last detail is in place.

    Amazing Venue, Fantastic Service

    We were lucky enough to have our wedding here in October 2019 and everything was perfect. It's an absolutely stunning venue and many of our guests commented on how amazing it was and how good the food was.

    The staff are extremely attentive and were excellent from the very beginning. On the day they helped us set up our decorations and were very good at communicating with us and letting us know what was happening and any decisions we needed to make.

    The whole experience was first class and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend the venue for anyone considering it.

    Perfect venue, bad service

    We had one of two of our weddings here last year. The venue itself is absolutely stunning, many of our guests said the same, and is ultimately what sold it to me as our wedding venue.
    However, in comparison to the other venue we held our second ceremony at there was quite a disparity in service and how the day unfolded.
    If you have a large family & circle of friends to help you organise your wedding then this may work well for you but due to my circumstances I single handedly organised our wedding day, and can say I did not find the 'wedding co-ordinator' much help at all. It's not very ideal for staff at the wedding to approach us twice on the day in the middle of our meal to ask what we wanted to do, or to point out that the music had stopped playing.
    You can stay at the house itself on your wedding night if you have a minimum amount of guests who would also be staying with you (which we would have loved to have done, but this is understandable). I expressed our interest in potentially staying the night without being told of the minimum guest number; however most of our guests had already arranged accommodation. I communicated this yet the 5+ rooms plus other undiscussed charges were added to our invoice, which I had to ask to be removed. It felt as though communication dampened once the full balance was paid.
    Some mistakes were made with our wedding breakfast, bearing in mind we had a menu tasting prior to the day - e.g kale instead of spinach, strawberry mousse instead of strawberry cheesecake, neither of which we would have ever selected. However, the rest of the food was delicious and I don't feel it was any fault of the chefs, perhaps it was a miscommunication. Having paid £100 for a menu tasting (which was free for 6 people at our other venue) I would have hoped we'd received what was discussed, and if this wasn't possible for it to be communicated before the day.
    It's a shame that I had to leave this review but as I say the house itself is beautiful, if you can get past the lack of communication and disorganisation of the staff.

    Yorkshires best kept secret with the WOW factor.

    Carlton Towers was the first venue my husband and I viewed for our wedding . We knew instantly that it was the perfect place for us to bring all of our friends and family. The venue is hidden away on a large piece of private land, with an impressive drive onto the property for guests to take in the grandeur of the estate. One of the great things about Carlton Towers, is that you get exclusive use on your big day, The venue also has many bedrooms which can be used on the night of the wedding (or a very nearby Travelodge for around £30 per night). The wedding Coordnator, Charlotte, is fantastic. What Charlotte doesn't know about weddings, or the history of Carlton Towers, isn't worth knowing. Charlotte helped us plan the wedding from day 1 & was present during the day, too. Carlton Towers understands that a lot of planning goes into the big day, and make it manageable by by inviting you to the venue on several occasions to meet with the coordinator. We were able to decorate the entire venue the day before the wedding, & were allowed to use the bedrooms to get ready in the morning. Carlton Towers have delivered many weddings here and this shows in their professionalism and exceptional delivery. The wedding toastmaster is around during the whole wedding to ensure that things run smoothly and on time. The food is exceptional and they catered very well for our multi-cultural wedding. If I had to fault it, I would only say that the on site accommodation is priced too high and the bride and groom shouldn't have to pay for their food/accommodation as offered by other venues. Overall I am so pleased with the venue and can't recommend it highly enough.
