Civil Ceremonies
We have a licence for a civil ceremony for the
spacious Library on the ground floor, which enjoys
beautiful views over the surrounding parkland, and
also has access to the garden via a French window
and a ramp for wheelchair access. The Sitting
Room on the ground floor is adjacent to the Library
and enjoys the same views.
There is also, on the first floor, the medium sized
Panelled Room, slightly smaller Boynton room and the
intimate circular Lister Room which is in the turret.
There is also the option of using Samuel’s
restaurant for the ceremony, which would apply
in the case of an exclusive use wedding, and a
marquee would need to be erected to seat guests
for dinner.
Please note that the Registrar’s costs for attending
the ceremony are an additional charge and
booking the Registrar is the responsibility of
the Bride and Groom, which needs to be done
at the earliest opportunity. If you would like to
contact the Registrar, the office is at County Hall,
Northallerton and their number is 01609 780780
ext. 2602.

We are able to take bookings for Marquees, using the site adjacent to the Library.
There is a charge of £1000 for the use of this site, and we ask that marquees
are set up the day before the ceremony and taken down the day after.
