The Grand, York

York is a city of astonishing architectural feats. The Grand is one of them. Originally built in 1906 as a ‘Palace of Business’ for the North Eastern Railway Company, then one of the richest businesses in Britain, the building is bursting with original features and architecture. The Grand was restored to the splendour of its Edwardian heyday during its transformation to The Grand Hotel in 2010, a time when the railways were central to the life of the nation. Look carefully and you will see reminders of this proud history everywhere.
