The Gatehouse at Kirkstall Abbey

The Gatehouse is the ideal place for a romantic wedding or if you want to impress important clients at a corporate function. With its breathtaking views and medieval architecture, The Gatehouse offers the opportunity to entertain guests in the rustic surroundings of a 12th century landmark.

The venue is made up of two annexes, a main room and two spacious patio courtyards at the front and rear of the building. The courtyards offer spectacular views of the Kirkstall Abbey ruins and are surrounded by lush green lawns; perfect for al fresco dining in the summer months.

Both annex rooms can be reserved during cafe opening hours and can seat between 15 and 25 guests - a perfect size for a business meeting or networking event. The venue can cater for 60 seated dinner guests in total and a maximum of 175 for canapé and drink receptions. This venue also enjoys unlimited free parking for guests at the adjacent car park.

The Gatehouse has been newly referbished and now has FREE WiFi! So you can enjoy your afternoon and still stay in touch with the rest of the world on your phones and laptops.
