About The Black Swan Hotel wedding venue

As elegant as the bird itself, The Black Swan is a unique hotel, which combines a collection of styles and architecture dating back to the fifteenth century. Today the hotel has been carefully transformed to create a stylish and distinctive four star boutique hotel, located in one of North Yorkshire's prettiest market towns.

The hotel retains a wonderfully historic and romantic charm with snug lounges, open log fires, and a quintessentially English country walled garden. Outside the hotel, Helmsley offers a wonderful selection of backdrops for your wedding photography including Helmsley Castle, Duncombe Park, and the babbling brook which runs through the town.

Whatever style of wedding you want, you can be assured that your every need will be personally dealt with by our dedicated Wedding Co-ordinator to ensure that your wedding day is unique and special in every way.

Of course we welcome your ideas and thoughts and are happy to tailor make packages to meet your personal requirements. Please feel free to discuss your ideas with our Wedding Co-ordinator who will be delighted to explore your thoughts and ideas with you. Your wedding will be the only wedding on the day making sure that we are able to give you all the care and attention that we can to make your special day exclusive to you.

Additional details:

Set in the picturesque North Yorkshire market town of Helmsley, The Black Swan, once a traditional coaching inn with a history dating back over 500 years, is now a stylish boutique hotel with a comfortable array of antiques blended with contemporary classic interiors.

As well as delicious Yorkshire fayre served in the 3 AA rosette restaurant ‘The Gallery', the hotel serves one of the best afternoon teas in the land. Its charming Tearoom boasts a clutch of awards (awarded one of the coveted ‘Awards of Excellence 2013’ by the Tea Guild).
