A Peek Inside King’s Cross Station’s Licensed Pub Wedding Venue
Lee has more than 15 years’ experience in organising and delivering large-scale corporate events and weddings.
Here Lee shares insight into the rise of pub weddings in the UK, and why so many couples choose to get married at The Parcel Yard – King’s Cross Station’s only civil ceremony licensed wedding venue.
Wedding Venue Spotlight: The Parcel Yard
Pub weddings are becoming increasingly popular amongst the sophisticated bride and groom. Gone are the days where happy couples were restricted to saying ‘I do’ in a particular setting.
In fact, weddings are much more flexible than they used to be, offering couples the freedom to have the wedding day they want. As a result, many are seeking out more casual and unique wedding venues, such as characterful pubs.
The popularity of pub weddings
It’s easy to see why pub weddings have become so popular. Many of us have spent some of our happiest moments in pubs – they are a place you go to where you can relax with a proper pint or a large Sauvignon after a hard day’s work. You can pop-in when you’re in need of a refreshment pit-stop while travelling, or celebrate special occasions with family and friends. So why should it ever be any different for your wedding day?
A pub has a unique atmosphere that rivals many other styles of venues, and it’s this atmosphere that can often be impossible to find and even replicate elsewhere, giving the location a personal and intimate vibe.

Why do couples choose to get married at The Parcel Yard?
There are many reasons why couples choose to tie the knot at The Parcel Yard, but here are a few of the most common.
A truly unique wedding venue
The Parcel Yard is a wedding venue unlike any other. A historic Grade I listed building in King’s Cross Station, the pub occupies the original Great Northern Railway parcel office built in 1852.
The North West building was an integral part of Lewis Cubitt’s design, and many original features have been kept, such as the entire floor which uses timber from the same building. With six function spaces to choose from, in addition to The Atrium and Main Bar, we have a space to suit you – whether you want a cosy room for an intimate gathering, or a grand area to celebrate.
Premium pub food and drinks
For the foodie-loving couples, Fuller’s pubs are renowned for their unmistakable mouth-watering menus including Chef Signature dishes and the more traditional premium pub classics. Weddings at The Parcel Yard include incredible food and drink offers at affordable prices, without compromising on quality. View The Parcel Yard's food menus.

Served by no less than six TFL Underground tube lines, numerous National Rail links as well as Eurostar at St Pancras just across the street, The Parcel Yard is located within one of London’s biggest transport hubs, making it a breeze for the wedding party, and guests, to get to.
