The Great Hall

Post ceremony drinks & photographs

After the ceremony guests can enjoy drinks in the Staircase Hall and make use of the completely exclusive grounds of Howsham Hall – it’s a photographer’s paradise. Guests can enjoy drinks & canapes, freshen up in their suite or even have a game of snooker in the Billiard Room.
