THE WOOL TOWER IS NORTHERN IRELAND’S LEADING UNIQUE WEDDING AND CONFERENCING VENUE.
Sitting on the banks of the Braid River, there are not many Mill Wedding Venues that offer such a picturesque private waterfront setting. The Wool Tower is set within Raceview Mill, where guests can wander amongst the quaint craft shops and sympathetically restored Raceview Gallery. Raceview Mill is situated at the entrance to the beautiful village of Broughshane and guests can wander along a kilometre of the riverside path which leads them to the heart of the picturesque village. With 15 acres of beautiful fields and riverside gardens to enjoy, your wedding photographer will be spoilt for choice when it comes to finding inspiring natural and industrial backdrops for your photographs.
