About Us

The 14th century Hospitium is a two-storey listed building set within the beautiful Museum Gardens, overlooked by the striking ruins of St Mary’s Abbey.

The Hospitium is our most versatile venue, available throughout the day and evening. It is licensed to hold weddings and civil ceremonies. The medieval rooms and garden-setting are beautiful and atmospheric – get in touch to make your dream event happen here.

For your wedding day you will have exclusive use of the historic two-storey building. Your ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening reception can all be accommodated with ease, so your guests can relax from the moment they arrive.

The Hospitium is licensed for ceremonies and we work closely with staff at York Register Office to ensure your wedding runs like a dream. Our dedicated team will help you to make your special day a joyful and memorable one.

It is a two-storey listed building set within the beautiful Museum Gardens, overlooked by the striking ruins of St Mary’s Abbey - the perfect setting for your wedding photographs.

The ground floor is ideal for your wedding ceremony and can be quickly converted to an open area for a drinks reception after the formalities are completed. Its medieval stone walls and latticed windows give it a historic, traditional air and offer a "blank canvas" for your choice of floral arrangements.

During the warmer months, many couples choose to hold their post-ceremony drinks reception outside on our paved area. This roped-off area looks out over the Museum Gardens and helps create a lovely summer garden party atmosphere.

The first floor, with its high ceiling and half-timbered walls, provides a stunning dining room for your wedding breakfast. We can host seated dinners for up to 135 guests and drinks/buffet receptions for up to 200 guests.

To round off the evening, the ground floor can again be converted into a space for music, dancing and more drinks.
