Staying in York City

Aside from its incredible history heritage and culture, it’s a self-caterer’s delight as a centre. There is all you would expect from a major European city on the retail, epicurean, entertainment, culture and drinks front. Yet at the same time, it is compact enough to be able to walk. You can imbibe where old seamlessly and relaxingly meets new. The city is also well known for hosting a festival of some description – music, theatre, food, drink, arts - each month of the year. City apartments in York, especially the large ones that accommodate eight plus people get booked far in advance during the holiday season,

Location-wise, it’s also hard to beat, placed as it is half-way between the two capital cities of Edinburgh and London. The North Yorkshire Moors, Yorkshire Dales and the Wolds start but a few miles outside the city boundaries.
