Information For De Grey Rooms

Following an elegant refurbishment in 2018, this former home of the York Hussars regiment, with its rich heritage and tradition, is a very special building in our city.

From the moment you arrive, to the last dance of the night, we want your wedding day to be perfect. Working with a handpicked list of local caterers, you can choose a menu that suits your style and taste, whether a classic roast or a replica of that memorable first date meal. Our recommended suppliers can help you dress the space in whatever style you choose and provide classic entertainment for your special day. Our dedicated wedding coordinator is on hand from your first enquiry to help support you through the process and ensure you create those once in a lifetime memories.

As one of the UK’s most romantic cities, York is the perfect place to get married. With beautiful parks and historic architecture on our doorstep, there are plenty of nooks and crannies to take those memorable wedding photographs. De Grey Rooms sits right in the heart of the city offering a beautiful balance of neo-classical interior with modern elegance.

We use local Yorkshire suppliers. Our recommended caterers provide outstanding, bespoke food that will exceed your expectations. Black Sheep and Yorkshire Vintners supply our bar, and we have a range of refreshments tailored to the needs of our patrons.

Built in 1841, De Grey Rooms have been a social hub in York ever since. The Rooms are Grade II listed and have wonderful features, such as the sprung dance floor and 11 metre high glazed ceiling recess in the Ballroom. Adorned with glass chandeliers, a mixture of wooden floors and deep pile carpet, and fine detailing throughout, De Grey Rooms bring neo-classical elegance to any wedding.
