Meetings, Conferences & Events


A Palace of Business

Built in 1906 as a ‘Palace of Business’, The Grand, York now boasts some of Yorkshire’s finest meeting rooms and event spaces. Originally the headquarters for one of the most powerful railway companies in England, it was built during the Golden Age of travel where no expense was spared. 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 WiFi, which can be expanded to 8 when utilising the beautiful White Rose Lounge and the Cookery School meeting space. Day delegate rates starts from £50pp in the low season and up to £75pp in high seasons. For smaller meetings and interviews we can offer a room hire charge from £300. Rates include VAT.

The Grand’s impressive history coupled with its luxurious reputation makes it an ideal location for meeting rooms in York. The perfect venue for special occasions or your next conference or event. Allow our team to create you a bespoke package which can include anything from cookery classes to afternoon tea, dinner at The Rise and even spa treatments. Our Day Delegate, Residential, Hybrid and Cookery School packages can be viewed on our website here.

Our Care Commitment is here to ensure you feel safe and secure when visiting us. We are more than happy to accommodate for social distancing or ways to help you feel safer during your time at The Grand.
