With more than 40% of its land devoted to National Parks, North Yorkshire is famous for its outstanding natural beauty. However, there's a great deal more to this popular holiday destination than the outdoors. York is the most visited city in the country outside of London, thanks largely to its picturesque streets and wealth of history. Among the city's highlights is Bedern Hall, a medieval building used for all manner of events. Enjoying a central location, Bedern Hall is close to many of the city's best hotels.
Bedern Hall was first constructed in the 14th Century, originally forming part of the College of the Vicars Choral. From the 1390s until the middle part of the 17th Century, Bedern Hall served as the college's refectory, bringing members together at meal times.
Late in the 17th Century, Bedern Hall was incorporated into a private house. The hall served various functions in the years to come, ending up as a bakery and butchers in the 20th Century. The building sadly then fell into disrepair. Restoration work began in 1979 and the Grade II listed building is now the great medieval hall it started life as.
The spectacular hall is now once again open to the public, being used primarily as a space for dining and social events. From weddings to corporate events, the space is diverse in its capabilities.
The impressive catering options are great for weddings, with chefs making use of all kinds of local ingredients. Business guests are lured in by the fibre broadband, state of the art AV equipment and proximity to the main train station in York.
