Formerly the Freemasons Hall and designed by architect Percy Scott Worthington, the beautiful Manchester Hall first opened in 1924.
The multi-million pound restoration of the Grade II listed Bridge Street building in 2018 blended the venue’s former glory with the the best 21st century design, and it’s now also home to Masons Restaurant Bar, Honest Burgers and Dishoom.
Combining glamorous 1920s architecture with cutting edge design, Manchester Hall’s urban grandeur makes it the perfect spot for a city centre wedding.
With a licence to hold weddings and civil partnership ceremonies, your whole day can be planned around the one venue, whether you want to celebrate with 50 or 500 guests.
It’s even been shortlisted for the ‘Best City Wedding Venue’ in the Hitched UK Wedding Awards 2020.
Make history at Albert Square Chop House. With such a significant and romantic history, it’s no wonder so many Manchester couples celebrate their nuptials here.
Located in the iconic Memorial Hall built in memory of Prince Albert, the love of Queen Victoria’s life, Albert Square Chop House lays claim to two remarkable legacies.
The first: the love story of Victoria and Albert. The second: 1662’s Act of Uniformity, which the Memorial Hall was commissioned to commemorate. The act was the inspiration for the non-conformist movement which still epitomises the spirit of Manchester today.
Widely regarded as one of the finest examples of Venetian Gothic architecture in Manchester, the Hall was built by noted Victorian architect Thomas Worthington, also responsible for the Albert Memorial in Albert Square housing Matthew Noble’s statue of Prince Albert built in 1867.
The Grade II listed building pre-dates Alfred Waterhouse’s Town Hall and even Albert Square itself, as well as being regarded by Historic England as one of the finest examples of Venetian Gothic Revival architecture in the country.
With such a significant and romantic history, it’s no wonder that so many Manchester couples celebrate their nuptials here.
