'The Leeds Club is a very comfortable and attractive venue in the centre of Leeds. There is plenty of space and weddings have sole use of the premises: two large rooms for the ceremony and the wedding breakfast (which was delicious,) One large room is quickly transformed into a disco and there is still a spacious but cosy bar available for non dancers to sit and chat. All the staff are friendly and really helpful. But, the main reason for choosing The Leeds Club, beyond all these positives, is that the Club really went the extra mile to ensure that the day was absolutely perfect.'
So many guests have commented on how great the day was and what a lovely wedding it was- thank you very much.

Location was second to none, and the building was amazing, so elegant and beautiful and full of character. The perfect setting for a memorable wedding day. The facilities were great, so many rooms and the whole building had so many special features that made it very unique, perfect for any couple looking for something that bit extra special. The Leeds Club was the perfect wedding venue, full of charm and character, it is truly a beautiful and unique setting.
The quality of the service was outstanding and it seemed like nothing was too much trouble, the team did their best to accommodate any requests. The venue and staff were really very flexible and committed to ensuring you have the most personal and special day. Their attention to detail is fantastic, and the team are so friendly and approachable.
The food was of a very high standard, as good as any top restaurant, and great value for money. All our guests were very impressed with the food and drink and the standard of service.
This historic venue was an amazing choice for our wedding and its city centre location meant that it was very convenient for our guests, something that is really important and we didnt realise how much so until the time. Our guests loved being in the heart of Leeds with a good choice of hotels within walking distance and were all so surprised that we had found such a hidden gem right in the city centre.
The term hidden gem really sums up the Leeds Club. A perfect all rounder for amazing reception drinks, then a formal dinner and then a great party afterwards. It gave us everything we wanted and more.
Huge thanks to Karen and Nathan for making our day so special.

We can't thank the team at The Leeds Club enough for their hard work in making our wedding day so special. We wanted our wedding to be intimate & romantic and from the moment we stepped into this wonderful building, we knew we had chosen the right place. Nothing is too much trouble for any of the team, it was a real breath of fresh air to be able to plan our day as we wanted it and not have to adhere to any "packages" as so many other wedding venues seem to want. Karen made the planning enjoyable and the day ran like clockwork thanks to Karen, Nathan and the team.
The Leeds Club itself is magnificent and is unlike any venue we had seen before, we had done plenty of searching and the perfect venue was right under our noses all along!
Amanda & Graham Gardner Monday, 24th September 2012
From the very first email we were looked after, never ignored and the answer was always yes. I cannot put into words how special they made the day and the planning upto the day. They made me very proud to be from Leeds and use the Leeds Club when our guests arrived from around the country to see its splendor!
I am trying to think of another reason to be able to use the club again!

The organisation, planning and service on the day was superb from start to finish. 5/5. The location was excellent for our guests who travelled from out of town; great facilities and a beautiful building which is perfect for photographs. 5/5. We are delighted that we choseThe Leeds Club to celebrate our wedding. The staff were extremely helpful, professional and dedicated and made the day a great success. The catering was also excellent. The Leeds Club is a hidden gem in the heart of Leeds and was the perfect venue for our small wedding.

Our overall experience of The Leeds Club has been first class and
exceeded our expectations. From first viewing the venue we were both
impressed by the fantastic service and would highly recommend the
Leeds Club as a wedding venue. The flexibility of the venue in terms
of food and rooms really suited us- we definitely didn't feel we were
on a wedding conveyor belt!
We had a wonderful stress-free day thanks to the superb staff team.
Karen was particularly attentive and helpful in planning the day and
was always on hand to answer any questions. Before the wedding we were
introduced to Nathan, the events manager, who was present on the day
and ensured everything ran perfectly. The professionalism of all staff
ensured the day run smoothly and exactly the way we wanted. Many
guests commented on how approachable, helpful and attentive every
staff member was.
The venue is beautiful and retains all original features, which meant
we didn't have to worry at all about dressing the rooms. The food was
fantastic and excellent value for money. We really couldn't have asked

We are delighted we chose The Leeds Club for our wedding reception venue. The location was just right and easily accessible for our guests. Inside the building was beautiful and we had the whole place to ourselves. The staff were so friendly and went out of their way to make our day extra special and perfectly suited to our taste.

Our wedding reception at Albion Place was absolutely superb.
The food was fab, and the setting was just as beautiful as we hoped. Each member of staff provided excellent service, and our friends an family are still raving about our day now.
The team at Albion Place were really accommodating, and I would recommend anyone to have their reception there. Tthank you Albion place, we will never forget our excellent day.
James and Sophie RuggFriday, 9th March 2012
We had such a fantastic wedding day at 3 Albion Place. The venue was perfect for our winter wedding, and we were able to have some wonderful photos taken in Leeds city centre with all the Christmas lights on show. From our first look round to the day itself, the staff were exceptional in working with us to make our wedding everything we hoped it would be. No packages here, we were able to pick and choose exactly what we wanted. The food was amazing, and everything was reasonably priced. Definitely Leeds's best kept secret! We have no hesitation in recommending 3 Albion Place for your wedding.
Will & Fran Newton Wednesday, 22nd February 2012
The Leeds Club is an elegant and atmospheric building inside and out with a unique city centre location, which can be a good or bad thing but certainly suited the wedding that we wanted to have. The staff were excellent and really helpful with dealing with our requests and making sure that everything went smoothly on the day. The food was very good too and several of our guests especially commented on the quality of
Darren & Sarah Scotland Wednesday, 22nd February 2012
We chose The Leeds Club for our wedding reception and couldn't have been more pleased. The location, building, and staff, led by Karen, were all amazing and it went a long way towards making the day one we will never forget.
Our wedding photos from the evening look stunning and we're still getting comments now about what a special place it was. We honestly couldn't recommend the place highly enough
Nick & Vanessa Hynes Wednesday, 22nd February 2012
The Leeds Club wasn't actually the first choice for our wedding, but we quickly realised we'd made the right decision. From the word go, the events and restaurant team showed themselves to be flexible, thorough and personally committed to making sure everything went smoothly on the day. Which, thanks to them, it did. For months afterwards our friends and guests were full of praise, both for the venue and the staff.
The Club itself is also rather special - a landmark building in a quiet corner of central Leeds, graced with elegant interiors throughout - and featured prominently in our wedding photographs, especially the splendidly well-appointed gentlemen's toilets!
We were delighted with the Leeds Club as a wedding venue and more than impressed with the help we received at every stage - from planning the event, to choosing and sampling the menus, all the way through to the big day itself. We really couldn't have asked for more.

We held our wedding ceremony in 3 Albion Place in October 2009. We saw the possibilities of all the rooms as soon as we first entered the building. From our main ceremony in the Leeds room to photos out on the front steps while a string quartet played to guests as they sipped prosecco in the lobby, watching our embarrassing photos looping through on the flat panel TVs. Then later, with a tapas-style dinner (hence no need for a seating plan!) to the band in the bar, later followed by the DJ while the oldies sang around the piano - and multiple group photos on the magnificent staircase, with women sneaking down into the men's toilets to get a glimpse of the listed fixtures and fittings, to babies sleeping peacefully up stairs. All thanks to staff who offered personable yet professionable, unintrusive service. It was all a perfect day!
James & Johanna ClarkTuesday, 14th June 2011
From the very beginning (selecting the venue, the food, and the wine), the staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. The service on the day was superb. Staff were extremely attentive, without being intrusive, and there were certainly sufficient in number to cope with the number of guests we had.
3 Albion Place is a perfect location for a city centre wedding reception, and we had fun walking down from the cathedral during a busy shopping period on a Saturday afternoon. The building has recently been refurbished, and clearly great thought and attention to detail has gone into this. The separate bar, reception, and dining area gave us the ability to break up the event into its component parts. The only downside is at the time of our wedding, there was no disabled access at the venue.

One line summary Unique and stunning venue with real ?wow? factor, brilliant service, delicious food and total free reign to do what I liked!
The reviewers comments
The venue is really beautiful, right in the centre of town so really easy for everyone to find, with loads of parking nearby for those with cars. Although there are no grounds as such, it was really novel having photos taken in the centre of Leeds against the backdrop of the architecture of Albion Place ? it was very unique!
Inside the venue there are chandeliers everywhere, there?s a really impressive foyer with tiled mosaic floor. We had a Pimms drinks reception then a Reception & evening do for 100 guests. We got the venue exclusively for our guests, which made me feel very special and gave us total privacy. I was able to have my wedding exactly how I wanted ? there was no set package or hidden costs like there are in other venues.
I also had totally free reign to decorate the venue how ever I wanted ? I?m really creative (and fussy!) so this was important to me. I came to set up the afternoon before, but because I had loads of other last minute things to do at home, I had to leave it to them to finish decorating the venue according to my vision. We?d had several meetings prior to the wedding so the staff knew exactly what I wanted, and I was amazed how well they finished it all off for me. The room looked so beautiful when I saw it that I cried!! The service was brilliant and really attentive ? they knew exactly what was going on all the time. The food was also delicious ? several guests commented to me how good it was ? and so well presented. I thought this venue was going to cost the earth because it?s so posh, but it was actually really reasonable. I?d recommend it to anyone!

My husband and I were both delighted with our decision to host our
wedding reception at Three Albion Place in January 2010.
When we started our search we knew we wanted to avoid the cliched
reception venues with formulaic wedding packages. Katie and the team at
Three Albion Place were able to offer us a wedding reception tailored
precisely to our requirements - a breath of fresh air after looking at
venues who had strict lists of their own requirements, such as having to
book a set number of bedrooms in hotel venues, or being restricted to using
The venue is elegant, original, and filled with character which meant our
wedding photographs look fabulous; the staff present on the day were
attentive, unflappable, and it was clear that nothing was too much trouble.
We loved having the whole venue to ourselves, having enough space to allow
us to allocate a room for children to play in, and to give our evening
guests the choice over whether they wanted to be upstairs on the noisy
dance floor or downstairs in the more relaxed (and beautiful) bar area.
Having married in our local church, heading into Leeds City Centre
afterwards meant our guests would have a wide choice of hotels in which to
spend the night and no problems with taxis.
We loved being in a venue that despite holding around 150 of our guests in
the evening still felt intimate and cosy. Our guests particularly raved
about the quality of the evening buffet food and the gents toilets (a

We couldn't have asked for a better venue. The location was perfect, it is a 5 minute walk from Leeds City station, the building oozes character and has plenty of interesting history behind it, particularly the original, grandiose gentlemen's restrooms. All our guests were so impressed to find themselves in this secret gem right in the centre of Leeds. We had a very small wedding in France and wanted a place to have a relaxed party rather than a formal reception. Albion Place can cater for both and made our night perfect, we loved the eclectic mix of a historic, grand building with modern furnishing and relaxed, efficient staff. Katie Smith was so generous with her time and attention to detail. Not being the most organised people in the world, we would often just make a surprise visit; if Katie wasn't available someone else would always attend to our needs; make us a lovely fresh coffee and listen to our wedding demands/ramblings with great patience. We didn't eat much on the night (I think the adrenalin of the occasion won't allow you to), but a lot of our guests said it was the best buffet food they had ever eaten. We had Pimms and a pianist in the reception area, then a band and the buffet in the Leeds room, we then closed this room off as it got later and families were departing and had a 2 man acoustic set and DJ in the bar area where the late-stayers partied the night away, the movement of people was just how we wanted it, Steve Brown the event manager on the day, articulated it perfectly. All our guests just felt so at home and well looked after, as did we, highly recommended, book now!
Sam & Gemma Wood Thursday, 21st April 2011
From the moment we began arranging our wedding, with the team at 3 Albion Place, the service and the attention to detail was excellent. Steve and Karen helped us through the array of choice and possibilities in a professional yet friendly manner; their experience in all matters wedding was invaluable.
We got married at the Leeds Town Hall and, with us both being from in and around Leeds, the venue of 3 Albion Place suited us perfectly. It is ideally located for a city centre wedding and the style, and features, of the building fitted brilliantly with the overall wedding.
The day itself was organised incredibly well, we were amazed at how perfectly timed everything was from when we arrived, to a champagne reception and into the wedding breakfast.
Which leads us on to the food, it was absolutely faultless. It has to be said the whole team at 3 Albion Place, from the chef to the service, pulled this off incredibly well. Every guest we spoke to commented on the high quality of the food, and the service, and from our perspective it was the best we had ever had at a wedding.
The party carried on late into the evening and at no point did anything go amiss; from supporting the entertainment we had arranged, to the evening food and taking care of over 120 guests though to the small hours.
To summarise; the big day was one we shall never forget and the team at 3 Albion Place played a huge part in its success.

The building itself provides as elegant a backdrop as you can find for your ?big day?.
But there are lots of fine settings and the thing that really makes No 3 special and stands it apart from other venues is its team. The staff exude professionalism that makes you confident all will be well on the day.
Like all events the key to success is in the planning and our wedding organiser, Karen, was attentive to our every need leaving nothing to chance. After all, you only have one chance to get it right.
There is no set formula, the building is yours to use as you please. The No 3 team are flexible in making best use of their wonderful building and in adapting menus to suit. No request was too much.
Planning done, its over to Steve, our wedding day master of ceremonies. The plan was reviewed and we were ready for the ?big day?.
What a truly perfect day it turned out to be.
Steve was awaiting us on our arrival at No 3 with a welcome glass of champagne. He was always there when you wanted him and made certain the day ran smoothly. It did.
Chef cooked a wonderful wedding breakfast and prepared a fantastic evening buffet for our guests.
Laura ensured that the decorations were right, they were and worked with Steve to manage the other No 3 staff wonderfully, not that they needed much direction!
All in all our team, the No 3 team, ensured that from the moment of our arrival, to carriages at 1 the day was truly perfect.
This husband and wife are very thankful that on their ?big day? No 3 delivered and gave the bride and groom a day that they will always remember.
