About The Grand, York

Station Rise, York
North Yorkshire, YO1 6HD

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.

Dear Dream-Team, (Megan, James & Igor), Thank you so much for your incredibly hard work! You did a great job! Our wedding was everything and more than what we could have wished for. You really brought a very personal touch to everything. When we’re next in York we’ll pop into The Grand, for a drink to say hello! Again, thank you, you are all stars!

Me and my husband, Will, got married here on Saturday 3rd August this year and honestly we couldn’t have wished for a better day. Megan and James, thank you for going above and beyond and making our day better than we could have ever imagined! The only thing we wish we would change is how quick the day went - it started and ended far too quickly! If you are looking for a venue to get married in and have the tastiest Wedding Breakfast and the most fun evening do, have your Wedding at The Grand, York!

Our Wedding at The Grand, York
Venue Service

By Sadie & Felix Arrowsmith, on 14 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 04 May 2019

I would definitely recommend The Grand, York. The building is stunning, everywhere you look it’s just beautiful. The location and views over the York Minster are breath-taking. But it’s the staff that make this hotel the best in Yorkshire. From the doormen that open the door when you walk into the hotel to the waiting staff who couldn’t do enough to make sure everyone was enjoying their day. Not to mention the team that spent hours working with us to plan the event, Megan and James. Everyone always had a smile on their face. Thank you again!

Our WOW Wedding at The Grand, York
Venue Service

By Emily & David Othen, on 14 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 18 Apr 2019

I would recommend The Grand, York to anyone, whether staying or for a wedding. Firstly, the venue is extraordinary and full of class and opulence. Secondly, everyone is friendly and wants to help you and make you feel the most important person. Our wedding was quite an intimate affair and yet Megan, James and the team made it feel like the most significant wedding they had ever held there. Plus, our dogs were part of the day and every member of staff loved them. In addition, Wayne the doorman really went above and beyond and felt like a family member by the end of our stay.

We had an absolutely amazing day!

Lauren Thank you for organising our wedding yesterday, we had an absolutely amazing day. I wanted to pass on that James was absolutely fantastic and I think every venue needs a James! Everything ran perfectly and the whole team of staff were faultless. It was great. Lots of people commented on how good the food was too! Thanks again, Katie and Luke

Everything was absolutely perfect!

We would like to thank you and all of the staff at the Grand for making our Wedding so wonderful. Everything was absolutely perfect and we just can't get over how our special day ran without a hitch. The day would have been nice but the main reason it was exceptional was the fantastic staff in a fantastic venue. Everyone was so efficient and professional however their warmth and friendliness shone through, just a winning combination. Most brides will never forget their wedding day however my memories will be hard to beat.

It was truly amazing!

By Jillian and Michael, on 12 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 09 Sep 2018

Hi Catherine and Laura, Michael and I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help with our wedding on Sunday. Everything was exactly how we wanted, all our guests said how welcoming The Grand was, and the whole team were so wonderful, with nothing being too much trouble in any help needed. Even with some last minute changes with seating arrangements! You made it so easy for us. Please pass on a special thanks to Ashley as well, who was brilliant and the whole team who were simply fantastic. We’re so pleased to have chosen to have our Wedding at The Grand, from the first moment we contact you, you have been so attentive, friendly and made it such a fantastic experience for us. Richard our photographer has sent through some sneaky peak photos, but once he’s sent through the others I'll be sure to send them on. The banqueting table took my breath away, the room was just spectacular. Thank you so much again,

Wonderful wedding day!

Venue Service

By Mr Barrington Father of the Bride, on 12 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 21 Jul 2018

Hi Catherine Now the dust has settled after Jess & Tom's wedding can I say a big thank you to you and Laura for making sure the day ran smoothly - because to me it seemed to! From what I could see everyone had a great time and thankfully the weather wasn't too hot. I have to say that all of the staff we came into contact with were extremely polite and helpful - which of course is what we'd expect from a 5-star hotel and our expectations were met. Thank you for an excellently planned event - we'll certainly consider staying at the Grand when we next visit York.

We had a fantastic, wonderful and fabulous day.

Everything was what I expected and more. Thank you again. Everyone who came to our wedding at The Grand Hotel and Spa said it was the best wedding they had been to. Thank you again.

It really couldnt have been more fantastic.
Venue Service

By Helen & Stuart, on 29 May 2018Date of Wedding - 06 May 2018

I just wanted to thank you for all your help and support to make our wedding so amazing. Also a big thank you to Laura and everyone else involved at the Grand. Our day really was perfect. It felt so special and memorable. There was just so much to take in. We’ve just come back from our honeymoon (back to reality unfortunately) or I would have mailed you earlier, but we talked about our wedding day at some point every day while we were away. We keep remembering things. The room looked incredible, for the ceremony and wedding breakfast, it took my breath away when I walked in, for both parts. The meal was outstanding, everything ran like clockwork. Everyone from the hotel (and guests too) was so kind and supportive. The room remained cool throughout the ceremony and meal (as you know I was particularly fretting about that !) The separate rooms worked well for the guests too. Our room that we stayed in that night was fantastic too. We really couldn’t have asked for anything to have been better. We’re really looking forward to seeing the video and photos as there was so much to take in we need help remembering it all ! Sorry we were such a nightmare with all our requests and queries. Thank you again. It really couldn’t have been more fantastic.
