About Merchant Adventurers’ Hall

Fossgate, York
North Yorkshire, YO1 2XD

The Merchant Adventurers’ Hall provides a beautiful and exceptional setting for your wedding. This ancient medieval guildhall is over 650 years old and can be yours exclusively for your special day.

The Hall provides a wonderfully romantic setting for large or small wedding celebration and can exclusively accommodate 20 to 180 guests for ceremonies and receptions.

Large ceremonies or partnerships take place in our stunning timbered Great Hall, whilst small ceremonies (20 people or less) are held in the elegant Governor’s Parlour. Afterwards, celebrate with a dinner in the captivating Great Hall followed by an evening reception in the Undercroft where entertainment and bar facilities are located.

The Hall’s secluded walled garden provides an ideal setting in the Spring and Summer months for a pre-dinner drinks reception and plenty of potential for photographs to capture celebrations.

Our appointed caterers will be on hand to provide you with a range of catering and drinks packages to suit your every requirement, be it a hot fork buffet to a welcome drink or a well-stocked bar. Our menus are all created with locally sourced produce and are served with truly outstanding customer service, and impeccable attention to detail.

Perfect setting

If you want a little history and character in your day this is the perfect venue. You also get quite free reign to run the day how you’d like it so if you don’t want a conveyor belt wedding this is your place. And so central that your guests can stay anywhere in York.

Historic medieval hall in the centre of York

By Claire & Simon, on 12 Aug 2012

June 2012 - We had our evening meal and ceilidh here. Truly a stunning location for dinner in an ancient hall and a large area for sitting and dancing downstairs. Hidden treasure in central York that has beautiful, well-maintained riverside gardens. Absolutely recommend it for couples who want an original and historic location.
