Described by the London Evening Standard as the ‘heart and soul of Leeds’ art scene’, The Tetley on Leeds’ South Bank is a renowned city-centre wedding venue with waterside appeal.

In less than five minutes’ walk from the venue are the delights of the River Aire and Clarence Dock which offers newlyweds a picture perfect, dock-side location for wedding snaps, set against a backdrop of rustic canal boats.

Founded by Joshua Tetley in 1822, the Tetley name represents one of Leeds’ oldest brewing dynasties and has been synonymous with the city for over 200 years. It retains many of its original art deco features including the wrought iron scissor lift and the Board Room with its original furniture and paintings of former Chairmen.
