A Spectacular Wedding Venue in York:

The BEST WESTERN PLUS Dean Court Hotel in the very shadow of York Minster

Congratulations on your forthcoming  Marriage!

Unique amongst hotels in York, couples can have their celebration in a building that was once home to the clergy of the Minster, where the emblem of the Keys of Heaven, given to St Peter, can still be seen on the hotel’s walls.

One of the best hotels in York, the BEST WESTERN PLUS Dean Court Hotel offers you a venue of distinction and elegance for your special day. Many couples having their Reception here choose to be photographed outside the magnificent gothic cathedral. The hotel is licensed for civil ceremonies of up to 90 guests, with a professional, discreet and dedicated service from the moment of your enquiry.
