Retaining many original features, it is set over four floors and is ideally located in one of the most picturesque streets in the very centre of the city with an excellent variety of shops, inns and restaurants at your doorstep. There is a plethora of activities and attractions to keep you and the family entertained in all weathers all year round including theatre, art gallery, multi cinema and river cruises, all within 500 yards.

There are numerous other attractions and sites to see in the city, including a leisurely walk around the city walls or along the banks of the River Ouse. You can discover numerous snickleways and alleyways running between the old cobbled streets, and a stroll down the narrow, cobbled Shambles with its range of curio and gift shops is a delight.

Within easy travelling distance are various attractions including Castle Howard where the TV series ’Brideshead Revisited’ was filmed. An ideal holiday base. The North York Moors National Park, 25 miles. Heritage coast, 40 miles. Race course, 1 mile. Shops 5 yards, pubs 20 yards.
