"Great hosts, comfortable rooms, quiet residential location, super close to the city centre. Mick and Mandy were very welcoming, along with the lovely Meerkat (Burmese feline, not an actual meerkat!). We had a newly gluten free person in our party and Mick was very accommodating for breakfast. Looking forward to a return visit.”

Sit back and relax on the Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour. Let your driver do the hard work as you explore the cobbled streets, see spectacular sights and hear fascinating facts from the live guide about York Minster, Micklegate Bar, Clifford’s Tower and much more.
York City Walls
York has been defended by walls since Roman times. To this day, substantial portions of the walls remain, and York has more miles of intact wall than any other city in England. They are known variously as York City Walls, the Bar Walls and the Roman Walls. We would highly recommend having a walk along the walls while you are visiting.
