Events and Venue Hire

The Ampleforth Estate provides the perfect backdrop for special occasions and events, from wedding receptions and birthday parties to residential course and sporting events.  We offer a unique setting with a range of historical, traditional and listed buildings spread throughout a large private estate set in the stunningly beautiful Ampleforth valley.

The accommodation and facilities of Ampleforth Abbey are available for hire during the summer months and out of Ampleforth College's term time. Ampleforth has ten boarding houses, providing in excess of 600 beds, of which a third are en-suite rooms. The houses range from the modern St Hugh's, St Margaret's and St Aidan's to the more traditional and centrally located St John's House. We also offer a wide range of conference facilities, some of which are available during term time. 

Whether you are looking for a venue for a large group booking, a school trip or somewhere to celebrate a special occasion, we can help.  To find out more, please contact us on 01439 766079 or email
