The Grand, YorkStation Rise, York, Yorkshire, YO1 6HT

Built in 1906 as the headquarters for North Eastern Railways, The Grand Hotel is York's first 5-star hotel. The Grand revives the splendour of the Golden Age of travel, having been carefully restored to retain all of the original features of this stunning historic building, with its sweeping staircases, mosaic-tiled corridors and tasteful decor.

Afternoon Tea at The Grand is served in the sharp and contemporary setting of The Rise. Reminiscent of its archaic roots in the 'Palace of Business' for the North Eastern Railway company; The Rise offers an afternoon of splendour and prowess, with its attentive yet unobtrusive service combined with an exquisite selection of cakes, scones and sandwiches.

There is a wide selection of teas and treats to tantalise your taste buds. Choose from the Grand Afternoon Tea, which features classic Afternoon Tea with sandwiches, homemade scones and preserves and a selection of delicious cakes.

Guests feeling in a decadent mood can upgrade to include a glass of Prosecco, Champagne or a Hendrick's Gin and Tonic teapot.
