Whether you’re looking for an intimate setting for a small gathering or somewhere that can accommodate several hundred guests, Station Hall provides a stunning backdrop for a stylish wedding.

You don’t have to be a railway enthusiast to be drawn in by the luxurious allure of nostalgic rail travel and vintage glamour that exudes from the carriages displayed in Station Hall. It sets the tone for an elegant wedding service and celebration.

Alternatively you can tie the knot in the Countess of York, a beautifully restored railway carriage ideal for an intimate celebration.

Our team of experienced coordinators will help guide you through the whole process, from initial enquiry through the last sip of champagne, and make sure your day exceeds your expectations.

We strive to give you the best experience possible, as recognised by our title of Wedding Venue of the Year 2018 in the Visit York Tourism Awards.

The museum holds a civil licence, and ceremonies can start at 17.00 (guests to arrive at 16.30). The area beside Queen Victoria’s carriage in the Royal Gallery is the most popular location for ceremonies.

To make your planning easy, we offer a selection of wedding packages including venue hire, furniture, food and drinks—all of which can be tailored to suit your needs.
