Where to stay in York

Despite York’s relatively small size, accommodations come in a variety of styles. You can choose from privately owned townhouses, low-cost hotels, luxurious international chains, and quiet B&Bs and guesthouses. For that ultimate urban experience, consider staying in the historical city center. This part of town is packed with options for every taste and budget, all close to York’s main attractions, as well as its main transportation systems. Just a short walk from the city center, family-run guesthouses in quiet neighborhoods offer cozy rooms and modern amenities at a fraction of the cost of the big hotel chains. Alternatively, the surrounding countryside is filled with charming private homes eager to welcome guests.

  • Kids had a great time digging
  • Poolsbrook primary schools going to have a good time in the York big
  • Aimed at children. Not very big but good way to entertain and educate younger kids.
  • Great place to take the kids, you get to dig in I think 4 different separate era's, the guide was very knowledgeable on the vikings, well worth a visit.
  • A great place for the kids. Especially if they like digging!
