History of the Principal Hotel York

The history of Principal York began with the introduction of the railroad in 1853 as the hotel for York train station. Originally opened as the Station Hotel, it changed hands as the railways began to expand. After Queen Victoria graced the hotel with her presence, the hotel owners quickly added “Royal” to the hotel’s name. Principal York opened in 1878 under the name of the Royal Station Hotel with three beautiful entrances and exquisite ironwork throughout. Its beautiful architecture was unrivalled. The owners had intentions of being able to accommodate the wealthiest of guests and showcased the hotel as one of sophistication and style.

With rooms like the Garden Room and the Oak Room, the hotel offers some of the most beautiful locations for you to host your amazing day. Every room in the hotel has historical ties to the past. From Queen Victoria’s stay to horse jockeys using the 100-yard corridor as an area to run for exercise, the hotel is rich with stories and wonderful memories.

Abraham Photography Is Your Principal York Photographer!

My name is Abraham, and I have many years of experience as a York wedding photographer. As you can tell on my Instagram and website, wedding photography is my absolute passion! I always look for the features that make a wedding venue unique. For example, principal York served as a hotel for travellers riding the trains in the 1800s adding depth to its character. I love looking for the little details that allow me to include the hotel’s rich history in your wedding photographs!

In all of my years of experience working with wedding photography, Principal York is one of a few that has more than an abundance of locations for breathtaking wedding portraits. Its beautiful architecture and luxurious furnishings make the hotel one of the most lavish I have ever had the pleasure of photographing.
