The York
Until the late 18th Century, the site of The York was open fields and part of a farm. In 1838 the premises of The York was a private house belonging to the Pullen and Rhodes families; dairy cows once grazed up to the back door. The house was first established as ‘The York Hotel’ in 1851, thus named as it sat on a major road for northern stage coaches running out of London. In 1872 it was rebuilt and from then on has been known only as ‘The York’.

The Royal Agricultural Hall which sits just metres from The York is a Grade II listed building which opened in 1862 and held agricultural shows. It was the home of the Royal Smithfield Club's Smithfield Show from 1862 to 1938 and held the first Crufts dog show in 1891. The Hall was converted to its present use as the Business Design Centre in 1986.
