Angelina & Thomas

Thank you to you and all the staff that helped make our day amazing. All the daytime and evening staff were fantastic. Thank you again for all your hard work and a wonderful day.

Wakefield Civic Society, Monastery Talk

Please pass on from our society a huge thanks for our morning visit, from the excellent coffee and pastries to our talk which was so informative on the whole history of the area, and our tour of the nave. I was amazed at the progress you have made from my original very cold visit with English Heritage in the winter of 2005.

Ky & Craig

I had my wedding at The Monastery Manchester and was over the moon with the outcome of my day! Food was fantastic and the staff were very helpful. I had two fantastic wedding planners who helped organise the whole day and who were constantly there at the end of an email for me! Very professionally run and everyone had an incredible day!

‘We all thoroughly enjoyed our visit and lunch yesterday. Emma’s talk/presentation was really informative and interesting and she looked after us all really well…Thanks again for welcoming us and I would like to wish you all the best for your continued success in the future.’ (July,2019)

‘This was my second visit here and was just as enjoyable and informative. Stayed for afternoon tea with my friend which was perfect. Will be back again.’

‘An exceptional tour of a building that has been through luck, good management and passion. How can such a story Not make you feel better? Well being in the highest order.’


Jamie and Steph Wedding

‘I would just like to say on behalf of myself and Jamie that we are eternally grateful to you and everyone at the Monastery for making our (my! ha!) dreams come to life. Switching to work with you was one of the best decisions I made, you have been unbelievable from start to finish. The service from all the staff on the day was fantastic and we adored Simon he is absolutely wonderful! The food was exquisite I could only see empty plates from my seat and the whole day was organised and ran to perfection. I just wish I could relive it all again.’

St. Mary’s Ladies, Monastery Talk

‘The feedback so far (on the journey home and the ladies I have seen today) has been excellent. Everyone had a wonderful day with you and Elaine’s talk was superb and very informative. The food was delicious and I did ask that our thanks were passed on to the chef who prepared the lunch for us. Thank you so much for a very memorable day.’ (April 2019)
