An intimate wedding

Host your intimate wedding ceremony in the Beam Engine House, supported by decorative columns with foliate capitals, rising to meet beautifully-finished ornate ironwork. It is the only place in Britain where you can see four steam-powered beam engines restored to working order.

The adjacent Electric Switch Room is also licensed to hold larger weddings for up to 50 guests.


Amanda & Michael

“We had the best day ever getting married at Leicester Guildhall & Abbey Pumping Station; all our guests were blown away by the venues. I couldn’t recommend a better venue to get married in Leicester. You do an amazing job; everyone is so friendly and welcoming; really put me and Michael at ease on the day."

Our permanent marquee seats up to 160 guests for your evening reception and couples are welcome to arrange their own external caterers.

Take memorable photographs in front of exceptional backdrops to leave a lasting impression on your guests.

We can offer couples the unique experience of riding on the museum’s mini-railway which will transport you and your guests towards our marquee to continue the celebrations.
