The 14th century castle was at one time the grandest castle in Northern England. It was a favourite residence of Richard III and Henry VIII and is steeped in 600 years of royal history. This unique venue, located just 25 minutes north of York, is licensed for weddings. Experience this beautiful historic backdrop for your perfect day, with private use of the castle and courtyard itself. No-one will forget your wedding here.. The Sounding Hall is licensed for 56 guests and together with the huge courtyard, the uses are only limited by imagination. 


£1200 for  use of licensed ceremony room for up to 54 guests. Receptions up to 200 guests, additional costs apply.
