This place is exceptional
I cannot recommend the Faversham enough. They are hands down, head and shoulders above anyone else we met with or any other venue we visited. The value for money versus the service we received was without doubt the best we could have received. This place is standout.

Lovely Summer Wedding in Leeds!
We had our wedding on the 7th of July, 2023. The weather was so sunny, and thankfully, all rooms had an aircon. It also had a good outdoor space. They also put some games for adults and kids outside. All my guests are having so much fun. We came from different cultures (English-Indonesia), and the staff were very considerate in accommodating our guests' food preferences (halal, vegetarian, lactose intolerant, etc.). They even set up an Indonesian snack corner at our wedding night do. The day went off without a hitch, expertly directed by Jess. We are very grateful for their help. The day wouldn't have been as perfect without them xxxx
Oozing with character style and flair
We couldn’t fault the day at all, and would highly recommend the venue and the team for anyone wanting to celebrate a day that is truly special to them. Added bonus if you get the venue on a nice day where you can make use of the terrace!
Fabulous venue for your city wedding!
From the moment we walked through the door, we knew it was the one! It's a beautiful, characterful building with a warm atmosphere. It's also got a great flow, which makes the practicalities of the day (and the transitions) a breeze. The room set aside for the couple/wedding party is a nice extra! We loved being able to pop in for a quiet moment or use it for hair & makeup touch ups.
The lounge was ideal for our guests who didn't always want to be in the middle of the party. It was also nice to have lounge furniture in the main room - everyone was able to relax properly when they weren't dancing.
What's especially good about the Faversham is that you can really make it your own. I had a few unusual ideas for our wedding and The Faversham were able to accommodate all of them. I think for couples looking for a cool, city centre vibe - it's the perfect venue. The iconic Leeds architecture surrounding The Faversham is dreamy for your wedding photos. There's also plenty of photogenic spaces inside, so you know whatever the weather, your photos will be gorgeous.
The whole wedding planning process was a breeze. The staff at The Faversham are the best of the best. Their communication is exceptional. I never had to wait for long to get a reply whenever I had a question. A special shout out to Deb for all of her support! The wedding fair and the tasting day were highlights - it really got us excited and made it feel real.
On the day Hannah and the team made sure our day was amazing. Being a perfectionist, I find it difficult to relax and be in the moment, but for once in my life I was able to as I knew I could trust them to take care of everything. You can tell that they care a lot about their couple's having a wonderful day - and that really shows in the quality of their work.
The food & drinks were great. Our guests particularly loved the cocktail hour so I would highly recommend adding that into your day.
To summarise, The Faversham has style AND substance. And isn't that exactly what you want on your special day?
Thanks again to the team,
Becky & Tom.
The Most Perfect Day
Our experience from start to finish was out of this world. The staff were excellent, they put us at ease every step of the way. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble and they were so in tune with every fine detail to make our day run perfectly leaving me and my now husband to relax and enjoy our day.
The venue. Wow, the venue. Our aesthetic was naturally very Faversham. We were lucky we had to minimally decorate as the venue is absolutely beautiful.
The catering - our friends and family still rave about the food! Mouthwatering food!
Our whole experience with the Faversham is something we will never forget and something we will forever be grateful for.
We cannot recommend the Faversham and the whole experience enough.
Helped us have our dream wedding!
Personal, unique venue oozing character and style!
Laid back, one of a kind venue
November Wedding in November
You could have a high class day or a very casual affair (like ours) and they're very happy to accommodate what ever you need. We felt we could ask any silly question that came to our heads and they treated us with total respect and understanding!
The venue itself is so so special; from the beautiful tiles in the conservatory to the small details in the bridal suite it is just beautiful. For me it is perfect.
The day went so fast and we wish we could do it all again.
Thanks Deborah, Hannah and the whole Fav team!
Perfect wedding day
The food, bears pantry, was so good, we've had so many comments from our guests about how amazing it was.
On the day, the staff quickly resolved any issues and sorted everything out so we had no stress at all.
It was a perfect day!
First of all… shout out to the staff who could not have made our day run any smoother! They work SO hard to make everything run seamlessly from a room turn-around to food service to the bar.
Secondly, the venue!! The venue is immaculate - even as a blank canvas it’s gorgeous.
The flow works perfectly - guests all congregate in the same area meaning the atmosphere stays vibrant.
The sound quality is amazing - from acoustic sets to a live band to a dj, the acoustics are perfect!!
And, the price point is spot on - you get what you pay for which is an incredible event and very good quality food and drink.
Planning and organising the event was so easy - whatever you fancy, they will make it work.
I cannot thank the team enough. Our day was so special and we couldn’t have picked a better venue!
I’m already planning the next excuse to have a party at The Fav….
If you’re considered an event here, go visit and I’m sure you’ll be booking within minutes!!

The most incredible wedding venue and experience!
The Perfect Day
The Faversham helped us find an alternative date, moved all the suppliers to the new date and made the whole process so smooth and simple.
The food and drink at the wedding was outstanding and the venue itself is beautiful.
Jess was a really attentive wedding coordinator without getting in the way. I feel like we planned everything before the day with Jess and then it all just happened without a hitch!
Just wondering if it's possible to go back and redo the whole day because I didn't take it all in!
