Twilight tea at The Principal York Hotel is a unique, luxurious and quintessentially British treat. This stunning Grade-II listed building sits in the city centre, with diners given spectacular views of the hotel gardens.
The Principal York Twilight tea is an evening alternative to traditional twilight tea, a lighter, later afternoon tea experience including finger sandwiches, scone selection, jam and playful petit fours with a sharing cocktail tea pot.
The Principal York is a wonderfully luxurious British treat, and is just a one-minute walk from York Rail Station.

Overall we were not satisfied with the Afternoon Tea. The sandwiches had a strange taste which was not to our taste. The scones were dry and the cakes were too sweet. The tea and the soup was good.

Booking was very easy. My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our twilight tea in the garden room. We sat by a window looking to the garden and the Minster. Service was efficient, friendly and informative. Sandwiches, scones and the cakes were lovely and I will certainly be booking again.

Great service. Interesting afternoon tea with a choice of scones and some unusual tastes like the velute and the lemon curd eclair. Nice refurbishment. Good value for money
