Medieval Mansion is a Classic Venue for Your Wedding in the heart of Shrewsbury



Couples looking for a unique and special setting for their wedding can now get married in a 13th century mansion house within Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery.

Wedding ceremonies and civil partnerships can be held in Vaughan’s Mansion, which dates back to the 1290s and is recognised as the ‘jewel in the crown’ of the Museum & Art Gallery complex. A rare surviving example of an early medieval first-floor hall, Vaughan’s Mansion is the only one of its kind in the region and it is a building of national importance.

Vaughan’s Mansion has a maximum capacity of 50 people.



Following their wedding ceremony, couples and their guests have the opportunity to hold a drinks reception on the Museum balcony, which overlooks the main Shropshire Gallery in the former Music Hall auditorium.

For details of other areas of the Museum & Art Gallery including the Balcony and Special Exhibitions Gallery please get in touch. These would be suitable for 50-100 people but are subject to availability.

Our prices for a weekday wedding between Tuesday and Friday start from £400, from £450 for a Saturday, and Sunday and Monday prices are negotiable. We offer a range of extras such as decoration of the room as seen in the photos on this page. To contact the Registrar please click here Registrar at Shropshire Council
