Full Description
The Grand, York is the city's finest address. With intricate stonework and marble detailing, the Grade II Listed, Edwardian building offers the perfect setting for your Wedding Day, right in the heart of York.  Built in 1906, The Grand boasts a stately character, with sweeping stone staircases, original wood panelling, parquet flooring and acres of marble. The extravagance and grandeur is all a reminder of the building's former status as an icon of the golden age of railway travel. The hotel features beautiful public spaces, 207 extraordinarily spacious rooms, two restaurants and bars, an executive lounge, a luxury spa, and even a brand-new cookery school.  Our dedicated Wedding Coordinator is on hand to help you plan your bespoke wedding at The Grand. Choose from the impressive Grand Boardroom for large celebrations, or the more intimate Chairman’s Suite to host your ceremony and/or Wedding Breakfast, and work with our award-winning chefs to create your perfect menu. Our team will work with you to ensure every detail is taken care of, from the warm Yorkshire welcome on arrival to the moment you retire to one our elegantly appointed rooms at the end of your day.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

It would be impossible to name only one! I believe the best Weddings are the ones that celebrate you truly being in LOVE!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Write lists! At the beginning of your planning, write down everything you want to have done each month. You will be surprised at how satisfying it is ticking things off.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

I love seeing personal stories, one of my favourites was created on a wooden ladder with the first date on the bottom step up to the day of wedding on the top.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Luxurious Elegant Unforgettable Inviting Elaborate

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

This has to be our period Staircase that greets you on arrival. The Edwardian architecture is signified by the impeccable design which creates the perfect backdrop for your Wedding photos.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

That would be telling! We have had a range of celebrity guests stay with us but unfortunately I am still waiting for Robbie Williams to grace our Hotel entrance!

What’s your favourite canapé?

Mini Cottage Pie! Maybe that is the Yorkshire in me but I think it is great!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

I don't believe treats are only for midnight! I therefore like to indulge all day on cheese! Baked Camembert is my absolute favourite!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

As the original Railway Offices, our Grand Boardroom features a traditional Blackboard which can be personalised for your Special Day!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

All of it! From the welcome on arrival by our Concierge team, to our outstanding selection of food and our tranquil bedrooms.
