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.

  • A nice museum. Not as big as I expected but worth visiting with the york pass. Has some interesting items. A good museum and well laid out but its just another military museum. Seamed to be missing that one item that makes you go WOW! Had a good time here.
  • Nice museum with some significant exhibits despite small size. Displays are relatively modern and well presented considering space, though I feel the museum would benefit from a guide or something to increase interactivity.
  • This place was OK but it was smaller than I expected but the exhibitions were great the only problem I had here is there wasn't much to see & their "the Somme" special exhibitions were a table with writing on it & the walls were just pinned on paper. If this place was bigger & their special exhibitions were more exiting/interesting I would give this place a 5star/lived rating.
  • Great adventure for kids
  • This is a hidden gem of a museum. It's wonderfully laid out, full of history, military memorabilia and character, and has friendly staff. Memorable displays include a full size display of an infantryman's uniform and weaponry from the Napoleonic War that confronts you, bayonet and all, on entering the museum. My personal favourite part of the display was the 'taken' cabinets - essentially the 'trophies of war', ie. stuff the regiments pinched from the battlefield! The museum shop also had some intriguing/odd things to buy, such as 'chocolate grenades' and even a full sniper ghillie for kids. Well worth a visit.
