Best Unique venues in York
Rail travel has long been a source of fascination and intrigue. From the global fame and glory of the Flying Scotsman to the splendour of the Orient Express, trains have transported, inspired and entertained us for hundreds of years.
With a collection that includes over 1 million objects spanning 300 years, the National Railway Museum is a celebration of human endeavour and achievement. The stories that run through the collection provide creative and inspiring backdrops for events including conferences, dinners, receptions, weddings and Christmas parties.
The NCEM hosts three festivals of early music in Yorkshire, a year-round programme of folk, jazz, early music and world music concerts supported by a significant creative learning programme. This venue boasts an enviable reputation for blending artistic quality, administrative excellence and creative diversity.
The NCEM also offers state-of-the-art conferencing equipment in a historic and elegant setting. The versatile space and range of modern facilities make the NCEM an excellent choice of venue for conferences, meetings, award ceremonies, product launches and other corporate functions and events.
Horses raced at York during the days of the Emperor Severus in Roman times. However, many of the 360,000 racegoers who will visit the reigning “Northern Racecourse of the Year” this season are unlikely to realise they are taking part in a spectacle that first took place over 2,000 years ago.
In more recent times, York Racecourse has built up a first class reputation in the hospitality field as a venue for business events and conferences. The venue offers a range of meeting rooms for hire, perfect if you’re looking for a training venue or somewhere to host your next conference. On offer is extensive range of spacious and elegant suites, complete with stunning views and access to open air terraces.
The Yorkshire Air Museum makes a wonderfully unique and atmospheric corporate event hire facility close by the City of York. The parkland location in the grounds of the original World War Two air base is easily reached by road and public transport facilities.
The Museum is housed in the grounds of the original RAF Elvington airfield, which was home to the only two French Air Force Squadrons to escape from occupied France in World War Two. The original, carefully restored wartime buildings make an atmospheric and spacious location for a wide variety of corporate events in York and the surrounding Yorkshire area while combining modern conference and communications facilities.
