The Elgar Room

For that very special day in your life why not book the Elgar Room at the Council House.

The Council House, once known as Priory Mansion, was built in 1874 by Alfred Speer, who demolished the previous house known as The room

The Council House still retains many of its original features from the ornate main entrance with its spires and gargoyles, to the wood panelled lobby and hall.  The grand staircase with its griffins, lead up to a large colourful stained glass window, which is a must for your photographs.

We are ideally located close to the centre of Great Malvern in the grounds of Priory Park which once formed the grounds to the house.

The Elgar Room has been refurbished to preserve and enhance the room's Victorian features. Combined with the beautiful views across Priory Park, it creates a wonderfully romantic setting for Wedding and Civil Ceremonies.

After your ceremony you will step out into the beautiful grounds of Priory Park with its Swanpool, quaint bridges and Victorian bandstand, with the stunning backdrop of the famous Malvern Hills.  What better location for those cherished photographs and videos of your special day.

To comply with Fire regulations the maximum capacity of the Elgar room is 50. There is disabled access to the Council House to ensure that everyone can attend your special day.
