"I suppose I ought to eat or drink something or other; but the great question is ‘What?" - Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. 

The answer is: Afternoon tea! The Garden Room at The Principal York is the perfect place to experience a traditional English afternoon tea, consisting of savory finger foods, freshly baked scones with raspberry jam and clotted cream, and dainty cakes and pastries. Feel like you've stepped straight into a Lewis Carroll novel and try to spot a white rabbit in the gardens (and visit the original Alice in Wonderland shop afterwards!)

Located a 5 minute walk from all of York's most popular attractions, there's no better place to stay to explore the best that York has to offer. You can't miss the grande late-Victorian manor house, surrounded by quiet gardens with exclusive views of the famous York Minster. The rooms have recently been restored by Goddard Littlefair, award winning architects, and so you'll feel right at home in the comfortable, warm rooms. Little touches, such as the vintage letterbox and 'corner shop' in the lobby, just complete the experience of staying in one of the most beautiful buildings in York.
