Here's what some of our newlyweds had to say about their special day:

We cannot speak highly enough of our experience at The Parade Ring Restaurant at York Racecourse. It is a beautiful venue overlooking the paddock and racecourse and close to the immaculate Champagne lawns where we had our fizz reception. The room is elegant and stylish with a nod to the original 1920s heritage.


The glass walls of the restaurant and balconies give the rooms a light and summery feel and flexibility for guests. The dining area was dressed exceptionally well with white linen and elegant tableware. The surrounding areas feature beautifully keeps flower beds and lawns. The service was excellent and the staffs were so good at accommodating our every request - even some slightly tricky technical elements in one of the speeches! The food was excellent, which guests have since commented on. I cannot recommend York Racecourse highly enough for this award. Jess and Joseph  - 28.05.16


The wedding venue, catering and commitment of the staff was excellent. If I could do it all again, I would! Maoma and Andrew – 23.04.16


Best wedding day ever!  Catered for everything. Nothing left to chance. Nick and Sharon – 26.03.16


We picked the perfect venue for our wedding, it is very beautiful and we just fell in love with the idea of getting married on the outside balcony. It felt so personal and the view we had when we were saying our vows was just breath-taking. We felt it was a really special venue with a difference. The venue offered so many unique photo opportunities too which was great. We would recommend this venue to anyone wanting their special day to be just perfect! Lisa and Colin – 26.09.15
