Perfect wedding venue!
We had our wedding at The Hospitium last week and could not have wished for a better venue! Claire and the team were extremely helpful in the run up to the big day and then from start to finish on the day, meaning that we didn't have to worry about a thing. Thank again for helping to make it our perfect day!Sent on 22/09/2018

Wedding of our Dreams
We could not be happier with our choice of the Hospitium as our wedding venue. Having only got engaged in October 2017, we had a very short engagement! When I contacted the Hospitium, we went to look round the very next day! As soon as we saw it, we fell in love. It is so beautiful inside and the location is unrivalled.Sent on 26/05/2018
Throughout the whole planning process, Claire and Eve the wedding planners were so helpful, responding to emails amazingly quickly and always being supportive and lovely.
On the day itself, the venue looked absolutely magical, thanks in part to the staff who helped us set everything up! There were so many people around making sure everything ran perfectly - from the security guards, to Claire and Eve, to all the other staff at the venue constantly ensuring everyone was having a great time. The catering from Bradshaws was delicious - several of our guests have contacted us to say it was the best wedding food they've ever had - and especially good at catering for special diets. We had children, vegans, vegetarians, coeliacs and nut allergies and every single person got a three-course meal of impeccable standards.
It is also a really accessible venue. We had elderly grandparents in attendance and it was great that there was a ramp into the venue, a lift to the upper level and a disabled toilet. Staff were very helpful in opening the Marygate gates so that taxis could drive right up to the door, meaning those who struggled to walk didn't have to trek across the gardens and could be dropped off and picked up easily.
I would 100% recommend the Hospitium as a wedding venue as I think it is such good value for a fantastic setting and wonderful staff.

Perfect winter wedding!
We got married here on 9th December, it's a perfect venue for a wedding and everyone commented on how unique and special the venue was. The Hospitium staff and Bradshaws catering staff were superb from start to finish during our planning and day itself. It's great value too compared to other venues we look at and nice that it contributes towards the upkeep of the museum gardens. Nothing to fault with anything, it's a special venue with great staff.Sent on 19/12/2017
The ceremony room downstairs is beautiful with the stone columns and window seats. Our florist Fiona Hogg did an incredible job with decorating it. The upstairs room for the meal is great to not have any turnaround time between the night do and is ideal for the 100 people we had.
Couldn't recommend this highly enough for a wedding or just a visit. Tucked away in the centre of York you don't feel at all like you're in a city centre.
