About Merchant Taylors’ Hall

Aldwark, York

Nestled against the city walls of York, welcome to the Merchant Taylors' Hall. Steeped in Yorkshire history, it is a remarkable place to celebrate your wedding day.

The Hall, built in the 15th century, has stood for decades as a testament to York’s intriguing medieval past and having been lovingly restored to its full splendour, it is a magnificent space in which to spend your special day. With a combination of original wooden beams, exquisite stained glass windows, historic pannelling - plus a magical atmosphere - your guests will be wowed by their surroundings!

Whether grand or intimate, the Hall has a choice of rooms for you to host your celebrations. The Great Hall, with its fine timbered ceiling, minstrels' gallery and huge, working open fireplace is ideal for larger weddings, while the Small Hall is perfect for your ceremony, post-reception dancing or to host more intimate weddings. Whichever you choose, our catering partners will work with you to create a range of mouth-watering food options, from a bespoke buffet to a formal baquet – the choice is yours! There's a fully-licensed bar too.

What’s more, the Hall is licensed to host your ceremony, meaning that you can say ‘I do’ in these stunning surroundings. Then, once the nuptials are complete, you can take to Merchant Taylor’s Hall’s secluded garden for wedding photos and a champagne toast to the beginning of your next chapter.

Amazing venue
Venue Service

By BenL, on 08 Nov 2008

This is a superb venue to get married. The MTH has loads of character, the food is amazing and it is something totally different from the usual boring hotels!

Fantastic winter wedding venue!

We heldour wedding reception at the merchant taylors in December 2007 and it was fabulous. There were no problems with organisation in the lead up to the big day and it all looked magical on the day open fire, massive christmas tree and twinkley candles. The food was delicious and I would have to agree that compared to other venues we looked at pretty reasonable. You won't regret picking it for your wedding.

Excellent. Our wedding day here was faultless!

We got married here 15th Sept 07. Cannot fault anything. Jane the manager was always helpful and nothing was too much bother. On the day the waiting staff were so professional, the venue stunning, food lovely with many comments from our guests and everyone had a fantastic day! Also, for what you get I think it's quite reasonable. Especially compared to other York venues. Get married here you won't regret it!

I was a bridesmaid for my brother's wedding here in October 2004, and everything was just stunning! The venue is so interesting and the food was superb, and as far as I know, there were no major headaches with the organisers!

A beautiful place for a wedding!

By Caroline Taylor, on 16 Sep 2005

We had our reception here, and although the co-ordinator was a bit mad, we had a fantastic day. Food was amazing, table decs beautiful. Evening entertainment does have a noise limit, but they are very helpful at finding people for this. Wonderful gardens too, and people can have a nosy at you from the Bar Walls!
