Compact and cultural, York is city break heaven. With great transport links, choose to arrive by train, bus or car. If driving then park up at your accommodation, walk, wander and enjoy thanks to a practically car free centre.
This historical walled city is popular with all ages and being over 2000 years old is one of the most interesting and mystical cities in the whole of the UK. With heritage brings art and culture which has been recognised by UNESCO and is the first City of Media Arts on the UK and a member of the international Creative Cities Network.
Along with the cosmopolitan culture is equally as cosmopolitan food and shopping. Many people have visited the host of engaging and informative museums in the city including the National Railway and York Castle museums and the Jorvik Viking Museum as children but on a city break, food is a huge part. Down the magical and medieval ‘snickleways’ and ginnels find some excellent cooking from breakfast through to dinner in tea rooms and restaurants where Yorkshire produce rules.
Interesting and historical architecture is where much of the hotel accommodation is found in the city of which there is an excellent choice of high quality yet affordable rooms. We love Hedley House, an independent hotel just a 5 minute walk from the heart of York with the benefit of off road parking. The hotel also has a restaurant and even a sauna, outdoor shower and Jacuzzi. Rooms from just £115 including breakfast, parking and WiFi.
