Weddings

One of Headingley’s best kept secrets, the Edwardian-era James Graham building sits proudly at the head of 200 acres of beautiful parkland. Lush flowerbeds and trees adorn the historic campus, quiet and secluded over the summer months. It’s a stunning setting for your perfect day.

Up to 200 of your guests can dine in the grand, oak-panelled splendour of the Great Hall from a bespoke menu tailored and crafted by executive chef David Parker, formerly of Bettys & Taylors of Harrogate. 300 evening guests can then dance the night away with an option to open up two more of the building’s dedicated function rooms, the stunning Acre and Jubilee rooms, for total flexibility. Guests who want to stay close by can also make use of the three star en-suite rooms available at Carnegie Village, just across campus.

A dedicated event manager is on hand to make sure your day runs perfectly and packages are built to be as unique and individual as the two of you.
