What's So Special about Askham Hall?

Askham Hall is licensed for civil ceremonies in the Grade II listed barn, the 16th century Medieval Hall and the Grade I listed manor house. If the weather is on your side, the beautiful gardens are also available for tying the knot.

For a traditional Wedding Ceremony, St. Peters Church and St. Michael’s Church are just a short distance away. Within the venue’s grounds, the Bank Barn has been beautifully restored to welcome you and your loved ones. It boasts original features, such as bare stone walls and a beamed oak ceiling, mixed with contemporary décor. Seating up to 150 guests, it is a fantastic setting for a wedding no matter the season.

Askham Hall offers exclusive use for couples, with a minimum of two nights, taking a minimum of 9 rooms the night before the wedding and at least 15 rooms the night of your wedding. This means that you will have the day beforehand to set up your wedding perfectly, with the help of the dedicated events team.

19 luxurious bedrooms will be at your disposal at Askham Hall. There are another 6 bedrooms at the venue’s sister property, The Queen’s Head, a charming inn located in the village of Askham. George and Dragon inn, only a 5-minute drive away, can also form part of your accommodation, offering 11 newly refurbished opulent bedrooms; all of which are dog friendly.

What Couples Say

“We had a magical wedding day at Askham Hall from start to finish. When planning our wedding, Becca & Tina were so helpful and were there to answer any questions we had. All of the staff at Askham Hall were so accommodating on our wedding day and everything ran smoothly – so many of our guests commented on how attentive the staff were. It is a gorgeous venue at such a good value in comparison to other venues. The rooms are beautiful and the wedding menu is the best wedding food we have ever had! A day we will never forget and we will always recommend Askham Hall to anyone and everyone as it is just perfect, holding a special place in our hearts.”

What Couples Say

“Home from home I really couldn’t recommend this venue any more. From the staff, to the surroundings to being made to feel like home. Full of character & picturesque views. Whatever you want from a wedding this place can offer it all. I wish I could go back and do the weekend all over again!”
