A Striking 14th Century Half Timbered Building
Hospitium, York, Museum Gardens, wedding venue

Situated in the beautiful Museum Gardens of York is the fourteenth century Hospitium. A striking building that would originally have been used for guests of the nearby abbey, it is half timbered with a sharp contrast of the dark wooden structure against white walls.

It has had a few uses over the years but following a renovation in 2006 has returned to it's more social use and is now a popular venue for weddings and events.

A lovely setting for a wedding

If you're exploring the Museum Gardens it's well worth wandering past and taking a look. There are old stones holding their own secrets around the grounds as well as some ruins attached to the side. It's not open inside to the public to visit as it's now used for events. However, if you're lucky enough to be invited to a wedding (as I was) then you're in for a treat.

The ground floor has an ideal room for a wedding ceremony with old stone pillars, perfect to wind around floral decorations. Upstairs, the grandeur of the building is unveiled with high ceilings, deep red paintwork on the ceiling and the exposed dark wood beams. It's a great room for a wedding dinner fitting for the king and queen of the day.
