  • Not very much remaining of this once important priory. The setting beside the River Derwent is very peaceful but it has connections with Winston Churchill and WW2 training of troops.  more »

  • 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
  • Sun trap. A good stop off to from the coast off the a64
  • Peaceful day out easy to get to and for disabled people no stairs
  • Very nice staff and a surprising amount to see that you don't really notice from the road. Good parking and with a nice walk to a Weer across the bridge. Very pleasant day out.

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.
