Details

One of York's historic hidden gems; Barley Hall offers a range of packages from a mead drinks reception, to a full medieval banquet experience within the Great Hall of this medieval townhouse.

Perfect for corporate and private events, parties, business meetings or even your child’s birthday; Barley Hall is available for exclusive hire throughout the year.

Barley Hall is a stunning medieval townhouse, once home to the Priors of Nostell and the Mayor of York. The building has been lovingly restored to its original splendour with stunning high ceilings, beautiful exposed timber frames, and possibly the only horn window in England.

It has been decorated to replicate what it would have looked like as the Snawsell home around 1483 and boasts a magnificent Great Hall.

Visitors to Barley Hall can make themselves at home, sit on the chairs, handle the objects and experience what it would have been like to live in medieval England.
