The Venue and Location

The Principal York styles itself the “grande-dame of York in the heart of the City with views of the Minster.”

At just a few steps from the train station, the hotel is the perfect base from which to discover the historic city of York. It has been refurbished and restored, blending the grandeur of late-Victorian architecture with the comforts of modern travel.
