York Register Office facilities

York Register Office is a grade II Georgian listed building set a few hundred yards from the Minster. It boasts a traditionally styled marriage room (seating 50) which opens out into beautifully landscaped gardens.

Front entrance

The entrance to the Register Office is through two imposing pillars, which form an impressive front to this Grade 2 listed Georgian Building. As you look left from the steps you can see the world famous York Minster just 200 yards away.

Waiting room

The marriage waiting room is a spacious area which looks out across the gardens, with the Bootham Suite situated to the left. It has an imposing fire place and will seat 50 people comfortably.

The Bootham Suite

The Bootham Suite has a superb setting for a marriage ceremony, with tasteful decor and a traditional aisle. It is furnished to a very high standard, with a York stone floor and a state of the art sound system. The room opens out directly into the beautifully landscaped gardens.

The gardens

The gardens are the perfect setting for the pictures of your special day. From a large hard standing area you can make your way down via the stepping stones, to various photo opportunities on the lawns. There is also a large rockery which forms a perfect backdrop for your pictures.
