  • Lovely place. Very clean. The staff were lovely and helpful. It's lovely for walking the dog around as well. It tells you about the history of the place on notice boards. It's lovely for a little picnic. Nice for couples.
  • Very nice site with plenty of history. Limited things to look at compared to some sites and no audio tour that I think would help. The suppression really did a number here, so not enough for a long visit but good to combine as part of your day out.
  • Beautiful peaceful place, with a fascinating history. Well managed and run English Heritage site, small with lovely views
  • Historical place, peaceful, quiet and great views, shop and toilets but small car park
  • Peaceful day out easy to get to and for disabled people no stairs

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.
