About

Located in North Grove, Greater Manchester is Elizabeth Gaskell’s House, which can serve as a memorable wedding venue. It is nestled just outside of Machester City Centre. The former home of famed Victorian writer Elizabeth Gaskell, this restored abode features spectacular period rooms and a villa-style garden. It makes for a one-of-a-kind and stunning backdrop for wedding celebrations.

Facilities and Capacity

Elizabeth Gaskell's House offers multiple spaces for events. From the inviting book-filled Study to the sophisticated Drawing Room with its grand piano, there are many well-suited settings for the ceremony. Both of these spaces feature Victorian furnishings and furniture. These period rooms are ideal for the couple wanting something special, intimate, and brimming with charms. Following the ceremony, couples and their guests can move to the Dining Room for the drinks reception. This is where Elizabeth is known to have written her famous stories and letters. Another option is the beautifully restored garden with its mix of heritage and native plants. Here, there are plenty of photo opportunities. Wedding celebrations can also take place in the light and airy basement. It was originally the Servants' Hall and former Kitchen and can be used for afternoon teas, a buffet, or a formal sit-down meal. This venue is available for exclusive use with up to 35 guests including the wedding couple.

Services Offered

Elizabeth Gaskell's House has a wedding coordinator who can assist couples in planning their big day. The venue also allows for outside caterers, making it simple to customise your event. Accessible car parking and changing rooms can also be provided, along with bar services.

    Beautiful small venue

    We loved using Elizabeth Gaskell as our venue! It holds up to 35 guests and the value for money is incredible (compare it to other venues and you'll see why!). The venue team were lovely; be aware that they only work/open on certain days so if you need to make a visit there it may be on a weekday. They were really accommodating in terms of accessibility for elderly/disabled guests and even helped us with some tricky chair sashes. Really appreciated their help and would like to visit again in the future.

    Elizabeth Gaskell’s House's reply:

    A beautiful venue

    We had an amazing day at Elizabeth Gaskells house. The value for money was unbelievable and the experience did not feel cheaper than any other wedding I have been to.
    The venue is beautiful and has gorgeous period features and furniture.
    Everything in the run up was very smooth, even with a change of wedding coordinator mid way through or planning- we were never left feeling forgotten about and both Ellen and then Katie were so helpful and kind to us.
    We were able to go to the venue the day before the wedding to set up, at no extra cost and when we went to tear down the following day- Katie and her team had already cleared everything and had it ready to go in boxes for us.
    We had an amazing day and are so thankful to the entire team at the house.

    Amazing venue for an amazing day

    The venue was a 'yes' as soon as we walked in the door. Beautiful period house and decor. We were looked after brilliantly by Katie, the wedding organiser, both before and during the day of the wedding. We felt lucky to celebrate with Katie and two of the volunteers (Cath and Jane? Sorry ladies, my mind was elsewhere!) who were responsive, friendly and kind. We had the best time. I recommend 100%.

    Relaxed Perfect Wedding!

    Got married here in Oct 21. Had the perfect relaxed day we wanted. The house is a beautiful setting and it was great we could have afternoon tea after the ceremony. All our guests commented on how lovely, unusual and memorable our wedding was.
