The Grand Hotel in York is a beautiful famous building steeped in history. It was built in 1906 by the North Eastern Railway Company, whom at the time were one of the richest businesses in Britain. It was dubbed the ‘Palace of Business’ and became their head office. In 2010 the building was fully restored to the splendour of its Edwardian heyday, when York was at the forefront of the busy UK railway industry. The Grand Hotel is a famous landmark in York and the luxury 5 star hotel is the ideal setting for one of Britain’s favourite past-times, afternoon tea.
