Situated in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, Elsecar Heritage Centre is part of Barnsley Museums and is a historic venue for weddings and private events. In the Victorian era, the local village used the old-fashioned centre for ironmaking and coal mining. Today, the facility boasts industrial-chic spaces for couples and communities from across the globe.
