A lively city, with a sizeable student population, there’s always something happening in Leeds. At the very centre of the action, The Calls and Briggate are adjoined areas with a variety of great pubs, many of which offer private bar areas, dancefloors, and private rooms or reception areas. This is ideal for those looking to celebrate in a casual manner, but with an added element of privacy and personalisation. As well as that, there are relaxed diners and more up-market restaurants available for private hire, if you’re looking to add some great food to your celebration.
Towards the City Centre, you’ll find some more exclusive venues, including disco bars, gardens, rooftops, as well as whole venues and private lounges. Perfect for celebrations with an added touch of class, they’re ideally located next to beautiful landmarks, such as Leeds Town Hall and Cathedral. As an added bonus, many of these spaces also offer bespoke food and drinks packages, and stay open well into the early hours of the morning.
Further from the centre, you will also find a variety of large halls, theatres, and restaurants in suburban locations, such as Holbeck Urban Village and Saxton Gardens. If you’re really pulling out all the stops and inviting large groups of people, then these venues are more than ready to hold large capacities, on top of an exclusive and tailored experience for your party.
Prices for renting an engagement party venue will vary depending on the venue’s size, standard and your individual requirements. In Leeds, it’s possible to book a table for £40 per hour if you’re planning a small gathering or an entire venue that can fit 100+ for £750 per hour. If you’re looking for venues with on-site catering, such as bars and restaurants, most of them charge on the basis of minimum spend, starting at £500 and reaching up to £4500. If you’re looking for all-inclusive package deals, they typically range from around £10 to £70 per person. (All data from Tagvenue.)
You’ll find a majority of superb restaurants and bars that are all within walking distance from each other in Leeds City Centre, along Park Row, E Parade and King Street. If you enjoy a family atmosphere and fashionable surroundings, check out Horsforth, which attracts young couples with its great variety of restaurants and event venues. For a prime dining experience, you can also head over to Headingley, home to some of the top restaurants in the UK. If you care for picturesque views and a laid-back atmosphere, plenty of bars and restaurants in Leeds Waterfront will be more than happy to welcome you and your guests to celebrate your engagement.
When planning your engagement soiree, it’s best to be flexible with the date and have several options in mind, so you don’t miss out on your favourite venue just because it is already booked. Also, keep in mind that some locations in Leeds are more popular among recently-engaged couples than others, such as The Calls, Briggate or the city centre. This means that finding a weekend date for your engagement celebrations may be difficult if when you don’t start searching at least 3 months in advance. Plus, you should expect higher prices there than in the Leeds Dock or Temple.
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
