Our bigger suites can accommodate up to 500 guests for a grand affair, and many of the spaces boast wonderful views of the racecourse, providing the perfect backdrop for your day.

As the venue is licensed for civil ceremonies and partnerships, you can hold your whole wedding day here. In the warmer months, your ceremony can be held outside on the balcony against a gorgeous backdrop of the view across York Minister.

It is a modern, timber clad suite with a beautiful feature roof on the top floor of our Weighing Room and overlooking the Parade Ring with views up the racecourse.

We offer a range of set packages to help with your plans. Alternatively, we have the flexibility to customise and tailor each aspect of your wedding to you, ensuring that you have the day of your dreams.
