The Guildhall venue hire

If you are looking for a prestigious location for a conference, formal dinner, civil wedding or partnership, then why not hold it at The Guildhall - one of the north’s most impressive venues providing excellent hospitality within a historic setting.

This venue offers free WiFi and a full range of audio visual equipment tailored to your requirements. Situated in the heart of the city, The Guildhall is 10 minutes walk from Hull Interchange. It has disabled parking, wheelchair access and disabled toilets.

This wonderful venue is supported by Hull Culture and Leisure offering a professional catering service that can provide banquets, buffets or light refreshments. Whatever your requirements, our dedicated staff are happy to help.

Venues -

  • The Banqueting Hall has a capacity for up to 250 people for a formal dinner or 350 theatre style. It is a truly magnificent setting that is unique to Hull.

  • The Reception Room has a capacity for up 120 people for formal dinners or 250 theatre style. It can also be used with the banqueting hall to host pre drinks receptions. Or for the more nimble footed, this room has a sprung floor which is ideal for dancing.

In additional to the Civic Suite we also have a variety of different sized meeting, a number of which are licensed and are available with private bar facilities if required.
