A short break in York is like no other, filled with history, culture and charm, yet buzzing with activity and life – there’s a reason why it’s a popular choice for mini breaks. Our city centre location enables our guests to make the most of all this wonderful city offers.
Any history lovers out there will be at home exploring the Roman, Viking and Medieval heritage of York and with The City Walls of York located very close by it’s the perfect opportunity for you to gain your bearings and explore the city by foot.
York Minster has to be one of the most fascinating places to visit during your short break in York; it is one of the world’s most magnificent cathedrals, with foundations rooted on England’s earliest history.
From York Minster you can wander the Shambles – the famous historic cobbled streets that are lined with shops, pubs, restaurants and bars – a fantastic way to spend the day.
For a taste of the Viking history the area has to offer, visit Jorvik Viking Centre which reconstructs the Viking-Age streets, sounds and smells that once stood on that site.
For anyone visiting on business, you can step out of our door and find you’re right in the heart of the commercial centre. We like to call it the best of both worlds and perfect place for business and pleasure.
