Your guests will have the use of a conservatory area as a waiting room before the ceremony and there is a room set aside for your use prior to an enhanced ceremony.

A landscaped patio and garden area to the rear of the building offers excellent photographic possibilities as does the famous Harrogate Stray at the front. Do feel free to throw biodegradable confetti in the garden.
