Built in 1835, as part of a planned late Regency terrace, De Grey House offers two well-appointed, light-filled meeting rooms with views over the Theatre Royal garden, York Art Gallery and King's Manor. Named after our founders, Dr John Bowes Morrell and his brother Cuthbert, we're close to parking and main bus routes and our adaptable, inter-connected rooms offer something a little different.
Our meeting rooms are located on the first floor and only accessible by stairs.
Fees payable on booking.
Discounted rates for charities.
