Wedding Ceremony/reception Venue





Guildhall Lane,


Leicester's Guildhall is one of the finest surviving timber-framed medieval halls in England and a premier venue in the city for more than 600 years.

In the heart of the Old Town, next to the Cathedral, the grade 1 listed Guildhall retains much of its traditional architectural splendour, with original period features and detailing.

The Great Hall and Mayor's Parlour are both licensed for civil wedding ceromonies. You can walk down the aisle in a truly atmospheric setting. The Parlour and the lovely cobbled courtyard are both perfect for drink receptions and photographs.
