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.

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

Had afternoon tea here in the Garden Room. This is a luxurious experience. A well appointed room, good quality afternoon tea with excellent champagne. The staff are young, friendly and efficient. Highly recommended.

Posh and different afternoon tea in palatial surroundings. The room where we ate was stunning - too busy looking round to eat! Service was excellent - nothing too much trouble. great attention paid to my husbands food intolerances - so good to have. Three small varied scones with clotted cream and jam were my favourite, closely followed by the savoury appetisers.

We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. What was unusual and a lovely surprise was the starter for afternoon tea - soup in a small cup and two canapés. The atmosphere was very relaxed.
