Located in York’s "Cultural Quarter",
THE YORK APARTMENT IS IN A QUIET RESIDENTIAL STREET YET CONVENIENTLY ONLY 10-15 MINUTES WALK FROM ALL BEST THAT YORK HAS TO OFFER.
A STROLL THROUGH MUSEUM GARDENS PAST MEDIEVAL AND ROMAN CITY WALLS OR ALONG THE RIVERSIDE "DAME JUDY DENCH WALK" WILL TAKE YOU TO THE PEDESTRIANISED HEART OF THE CITY WITH IT'S STAGGERING CHOICE OF PLACES TO EAT OUT AND ALL of YORK'S HISTORIC AND CULTURAL ATTRACTIONS.
OUR CURRENT FAVOURITES ARE THE CITY ART GALLERY WHICH NOW HOUSES THE MOST IMPORTANT COLLECTION OF CONTEMPORARY CERAMICS IN THE COUNTRY AND PARTISAN CAFÉ/RESTAURANT in MIckelgate.
THE CASTLE MUSEUM FEATURES A RECONSTRUCTED VICTORIAN STREET SCENE including DAVID'S GREAT GRANDFATHER'S SADDLERY AND THE RAILWAY MUSEUM (FREE) IS A SURPRISING DELIGHT EVEN TO THOSE WHO THOUGHT THEY HAD NO INTEREST IN TRAINS!
