Where to stay in York

About York

Dating back to the Vikings, York offers a vibrant cafe scene and a flower-filled botanical garden, considered a must-see stop on an itinerary through North Yorkshire. Home to York Minster, one of the largest cathedrals in Europe, this historical city is nestled alongside the River Ouse

Things to do

There’s something for everybody in this city, as foodies can spend the morning tasting local produce at the market and history buffs can scale the city walls or explore Viking artefacts at the Jorvik Museum, while those looking for adventure can hire a river boat for an afternoon of cruising down the River Ouse.

When it comes to dining, afternoon tea is famous here, and you can’t leave the city without paying a visit to Betty’s, a prestigious cafe that’s worth queuing into the street for. After you’ve indulged in more scones and clotted cream than justifiable, it’s time to hit the shops. Head down Coney Street to find high street brands or meander through Fossgate Street to discover various vintage stores before retiring to the Fossgate Social, perfect for a gin and tonic or hand-crafted coffee.

One street in York that you simply must take a stroll down is The Shambles, one of the most visited streets in the United Kingdom, and the winner of the “Britain’s Most Picturesque Street” award. With cobbled pavements and precariously overhanging medieval buildings, a walk down The Shambles will transport you back to the 15th-century.

In the evening, the city is abuzz with theatre revellers and ghost walk participants, both of which provide an excellent way to spend the evening. Dine on acclaimed British cuisine at Jamie Oliver’s restaurant, while those looking for a more a romantic vibe can book a reservation at one of York’s authentic Italian restaurants with candlelight seating.

Getting around

York is a city that can be explored entirely on foot. However, public transport is easy-to-navigate with buses running regularly to and from the centre. For those after some bargain shopping, take the bus to the Designer Outlet situated on the outskirts of town. Bike hire is also available, as many bike parks, lanes and paths make getting around on two wheels super easy.
