A Grand Festive Celebration with The Grand Hotel & Spa York

The Grand Hotel & Spa, York – Yorkshire’s only AA-rated five-star hotel – will be treating York locals and visitors to a festive celebration in the form of a luxury horse and carriage this weekend (09 December). 

The Grand is putting on a traditional horse and carriage, decorated to suit the season including cosy blankets, and will be offering mulled drinks and mince pies before taking visitors on a whistle-stop tour of the city of York. The hotel will also be unveiling its glorious ice sculpture as part of the York Ice Trail (#YorkIceTrail), one of 45 works of art on display over 09 and 10 December.

Philip Bolson, General Manager at The Grand Hotel & Spa, said:

“We can’t wait to see the delight on our visitors’ faces as they’ve arrive to the hotel to see the magnificent carriage alongside our beautiful ice sculpture – plus a little secret wintery surprise we’ve got up our sleeve. Our ethos is to go above and beyond wherever possible, and we felt there was no better way to show off our wonderful city than with an homage to our building’s Edwardian past – a luxuriously festive horse and carriage.”

The horse and carriage will be free to use for hotel guests and passers-by on a first come, first served basis from 10am – 5pm.
