Built in 1906 as a ‘Palace of Business’, originally the headquarters for one of the most powerful railway companies in England, it was built during the Golden Age of travel. The Grand is an iconic building, which reflects the elegance and glamour of the period. As far as York conference venues go, The Grand provides the perfect backdrop for your meetings and events. We have a total of 6 event spaces complete with Wi-Fi, which can be expanded to 7 when utilising the beautiful the cookery school meeting space. The State-Of-The-Art-Cookery-School at The Grand opened in March 2019 and offers express, half-, and full-day courses focussing on a selection of international cuisines, speciality classes along with teambuilding experiences set to add a dynamic and immersive element to conference and events for our business clientele.
Also home to fine dining restaurant, Legacy, where you can enjoy a five or eight-course fine dining menu along with carefully chosen wine pairing options to perfectly complement each dish. The restaurant boasts innovative cuisine and interiors with locality, sustainability, and great northern hospitality at its core.
