It's a glittering party on September 17th. A time to celebrate stunning produce, dedicated people and dazzling destinations in a venue which epitomises the same values.

The landmark Principal York is a dazzling hotel which is steeped in history, combining stylish and luxurious interiors with the grandeur of many original Victorian features including a grand sweeping staircase and glittering chandeliers.

Located within three acres of beautifully manicured gardens, guest facilities include the stunning Garden Room, the Chapter House Bar and a fully equipped gym and spa.
