About this space

For Event groups up to 35 people, the Drawing Room at Elizabeth Gaskell's House provides a stunning space for your day.

The Drawing Room is filled out with Victorian furnishings and furniture that can be arranged to suit your wedding party. It also includes use of a Boudoir Grand piano which may be played by an experienced pianist.

Before the event, your guests can wait in the entrance hall and look around the Morning Room of the house. Following the ceremony, we can provide a drinks reception in the period Dining Room, which is where Elizabeth wrote her stories and letters.

The surrounding gardens provide a beautiful backdrop for photographs, as does the staircase and front steps of the house.
