Weddings

Located on the historic site of the world’s oldest surviving passenger railway station, housed in 5 listed buildings, our unique galleries and significant collections can provide a stunning backdrop to your wedding day.

Tie the knot in The Great Western Warehouse and then have drinks in our Revolution Manchester Gallery or the atmospheric setting of the Power Hall, home to one of the world’s largest collections of steam mill engines and locomotives.

Entertain between 200 and 250 guests in one of our event spaces: the Garratt Suite, a bright and contemporary space, or Revolution Manchester Gallery, where you’ll be seated among some of the greatest innovations in the history of science and technology.
