1 year ago

Originally built in 1906 as a ‘Palace of Business’ for the North Eastern Railway Company, The Grand, York, lives up to its name – retaining much of its Edwardian splendour. With its city centre location, unique experiential packages and exquisite food and beverage offering, the hotel provides the perfect all-around escape. Today, there are 207 beautifully designed luxury suites and spacious rooms that occupy the two main wings. Guests can choose between the original building with its high ceilings, large windows and architectural quirks or the contemporary wing, a clever blend of heritage meets modern simplicity. The spa, housed in the former vaults, offers a blissful escape, while diners can choose between fine-dining restaurant Legacy, with a tasting menu focused on seasonality, locality and sustainability, or modern British cuisine in AA Rosette Rise Restaurant – both are sure to delight epicureans. Don’t miss the award-winning afternoon tea either. In the evening, start with a cocktail ßon the terrace and finish off the night with a whisky at the 1906 Bar. And, as if all that wasn’t enough, The Grand has an award-winning cookery school, too.
