St Saviourgate York is a conference and events venue situated within the ancient walls of York and surrounded by 2000 years of history. The venue is the Central Methodist Church which dates back to 1840 and is today a Grade II* listed building. Designed by architect James Simpson who was tasked to create a building that would provide as a meeting and community space and to mark the centenary of Methodism. Today St Saviourgate has five flexible event spaces capable of holding events for up to 400 people.
Positioned next to the Shambles and in view of York Minster, the building has an iconic colonnaded portico frontage that leads into a two storey Great Hall. The Great Hall has a decorated high ceiling, stained glass windows and an impressive organ. A series of buildings connected to the Great Hall via a corridor lead to a sunny and green courtyard in the centre of the venue.
The Fulford and Rawcliffe rooms combined make up the primary events spaces, these rooms can be separated by moving wall. This original wall feature is a wonderful example of Victorian engineering providing a flexible use of meeting space. Our smaller room Clifton makes for an ideal break out space.
