Meetings, Conferences & Events


A Palace of Business

Originally built in 1906 as a ‘Palace of Business’ for one of the most powerful railway companies in Edwardian England, The Grand, York is now Yorkshire’s most luxurious hotel with meeting rooms, events & conference venues. It was the Golden Age of travel, when no expense was spared in the pursuit of luxury, so it will come as no surprise that The Grand now boasts some of the finest meeting rooms in York. As far as York conference venues go, The Grand provides the perfect backdrop for your meetings and events.

We have a total of 7 meeting rooms, complete with WiFi, which can be expanded to 9 when utilising the Hudson’s Private Dining area and the Cookery School meeting space. Day delegate rates starts from £45pp in the low season and up to £65pp in high seasons. For smaller meetings and interviews we can offer a room hire charge from £200. Rates include VAT.

The Grand’s impressive history as the ‘palace of business’ coupled with its luxurious reputation makes it an ideal location for meeting rooms in York; the perfect place for special occasions or your next conference or event. You can also get in touch with our team to create your own conference package to include what you want, from cookery classes to afternoon tea, dinner at The Rise and even spa access. We also offer meeting and conference packages – Our Day Delegate, Residential, Hybrid and Cookery School packages can be viewed on our website here.

There is currently limited availability for the remainder of the year, but plenty for 2022, so contact us today to secure your date and book your meeting at The Grand, York.
