  • A pleasant enough park, lots for the kids to do and fairly well kept park. No signs for a cafe though...  more »
  • Sense of freedom and security. This beautiful park behind our hotel and we can exploit it very well ... It's worth it!

  • A huge park along the River, with several roads, varied and interesting vegetation, and above all very clean.

  • My local park. Lovely space but lots of geese so can become pretty unpleasant with geese poo! The Gardner's do their best to keep it clean though. Beautiful flowers in summer. Children's play area. Cafe. Skateboard park. Events.
  • Pretty park in the middle of york, where you can escape the people and traffic and breathe in the green! There is a cute little cafe in the middle of the park that offers a nice selection of afternoon delights, tea, cakes, sandwiches, soup. There is small lake in the park with ducks which can make the delight of the small ones.
  • A large park with plenty of play areas for all age groups including designated tennis courts and a skate park with ramps suiting all abilities. Good for dog walking but must be on a lead, good for keep fit runners. Cafe for refreshments, tea/coffee, cold drinks, ice cream, cakes etc. A duck pond will amuse toddlers but be aware of the geese who can be a bit aggressive.
  • Great play area for children, lots of outdoor space. Nice cafe, a pond with birds. Seasonal activities
  • Great public park by the River Ouse near the centre of York. Good to wander around, nice large ponds. Good children's play area, with younger and older play equipment. Cafe is nice.

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.
