  • Great collection of still life and abstract. Loved William Etty's collection. I cannot have enough of Anthony Shaw's. Very nice and knowledgeable staff if you have questions, but do not go deep into the artwork's background.
  • Brilliant range of art from local, traditional and modern. Very 'hands-on' and certainly encourages people of all ages to sketch or make art themselves. Very reasonably priced too. Definitely had my money's-worth.
  • Just recently refurbished. Looks nice but they charge too much to get in.
  • Always love visiting the art gallery. It's changing exhibitions are very good.
  • I love the oil painting but there’s only one room here. If you love Paul Nash it will be worthy.

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.
