The feel

Abbey Pumping Station

Our newest venue! Be one of the first to hold a small wedding in the splendid Beam Engine House – a magnificent monument to Victorian engineering. Drinks can be held in the adjoining former Electric Switch Room. You can also hire a marquee to host a larger celebration in our extensive grounds, including the private paddock area.

This genuinely is something very different!

Capacity 20 seated/40 standing

Belgrave Hall & Gardens

18th -century charm! The perfect backdrop for a more intimate wedding. Choose from 3 licensed rooms in this lovingly-restored former family home. Our special bridal room with views of the beautiful gardens is available for those finishing touches – before walking down the sweeping staircase and up the aisle. The converted stable block opens onto an attractive cobbled courtyard. This area offers a charming setting for weddings and drinks receptions and has a professional-standard kitchen available for your catering. In summer we have a marquee in the garden, which seats up to 90 people for your wedding breakfast. Stunning photographs are guaranteed!

Capacity 40 seated/60 standing

The Guildhall

Medieval Elegance. The Guildhall has been at the heart of the city for over 600 years. Make it part of your history by marrying in the awesome Great Hall or smaller Mayor’s Parlour. Both have stunning oak panelling and fireplaces, with many original features.

The enclosed courtyard is an enchanting location to serve a glass of champagne after the ceremony.

A popular city-centre venue for weddings and drinks receptions, there are several nearby venues which can provide capacity and catering for further celebrations.

Capacity 80 seated/150 standing (Great Hall)

Capacity 35 seated/70 standing (Mayor’s Parlour)

New Walk Museum

Classical elegance. Situated on the picturesque New Walk, this is the perfect location for a more traditional wedding with a twist. Under 10 minutes- walk from Leicester Station.

The newly-refurbished Victorian Art Gallery is beautifully lit and is our largest venue for civil ceremonies. Our team will work with you to create a perfect day. You are welcome to arrange for singers and musicians to perform. We have a stage, AV and a beautiful Steinway piano for hire.

The smaller, classical Lord Mayor’s Room is also available for weddings or drinks receptions. We can offer unique photo opportunities, including weddings with dinosaurs – the ultimate in unusual guests!

Capacity 180 seated/200 standing (Victorian Gallery)

Capacity 60 seated/80 standing (Lord Mayor’s Room)

News- we now have a exciting new marquee available at Abbey Pumping Station that seats 160 cabaret-style. An ideal venue for celebrations after getting married in the magnificent Beam Engine House!
