Sheffield’s newest hotel will offer former students the chance to marry in a historic location.

Halifax Hall Hotel in Endcliffe, a former Victorian mansion and halls of residence for students at The University of Sheffield, has gained a licence for civil wedding ceremonies before its official opening later this summer.

“The licence will be the icing on the cake,” said Paul Foster, general manager.

The halls have had a £1.8m revamp.
