Christmas at The Grange

Are you beginning to think about booking your Christmas celebrations? What better place to celebrate the festive season than The Grange Hotel in York.

Christmas Residential Package

At Christmas time York is transformed into a winter wonderland. Wander through the charming cobbled Shambles and atmospheric narrow streets, enjoy magical Christmas displays, visit the magnificent York Minster and experience all our wonderful city has to offer. The Grange Hotel, situated within a short walk of York Minster and the city's historic sites, is the perfect place to spend Christmas. It's a special place at any time of year but this is particularly true at Christmas when the hotel is beautifully decorated and cosy roaring fires welcome our guests, creating a truly magical atmosphere. Stay at The Grange Hotel and enjoy all that Christmas has to offer, delicious meals, carols around the tree, a festive atmosphere, the beautiful city of York with its cobbled streets, medieval buildings and historic attractions.

Christmas Eve

We look forward to welcoming you to The Grange Hotel, with check-in from 2:00pm. We'll help you settle into your accommodation before you relax and unwind in our Morning Room. Afternoon tea will be served from 3:00pm.

If you can tear yourself away from the blazing open fire, you might like to take a stroll into the centre of York for the traditional carol service at York Minster. Alternatively, wander the shops for those last minute stocking fillers.

At 6:30pm join our General Manager for a glass of champagne and canapés before dinner will then be served in The Ivy.

Christmas Day

Start Christmas Day with a hearty Yorkshire breakfast, or perhaps the lighter option of smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. There is plenty of time for you to exchange gifts before our traditional Christmas lunch is served from 12:00 noon.

The afternoon is for relaxation - the Queen's speech, traditional board games or simply sink into one of our comfy sofas in the Morning Room with a good book and a glass of port. Weather permitting, you may prefer to meander through the ancient streets and snickleways, under the bars and onto the banks of the River Ouse.

In the evening, enjoy an informal buffet together with a glass of mulled wine.

Boxing Day

Enjoy a later start to the day as our Boxing Day Brunch shall be served until 11.30 am. The afternoon is free for your relax and enjoy York. Stroll by the river, wander through the medieval streets or browse around the shops before we meet up at Fairfax House for a private guided tour. A classical architectural masterpiece of its age,

Fairfax House was originally the winter home of Viscount Fairfax. Its richly decorated interior was designed by York's most distinguished eighteenth century architect, John Carr. Extensively adapted in the twentieth century as a cinema and dance floor, Fairfax House was saved

from decay and returned to its former glory by York

Civic Trust in 1982 – 84. Today, Fairfax House once more transports you to the splendour of city-living in Georgian York, the centre of polite society. The superb Noel Terry collection of furniture, clocks, paintings and decorative arts, described by Christie's as one of the finest private collections of the twentieth century, perfectly complements the house, bringing it to life and creating a special lived-in feeling. This evening's carvedbuffet shall be served from 7.30 pm.
