  • A wonderful building housing a great permanent collection as well as well curated exhibitions. Highly recommend the cafe run by Cafe No. 8
  • Just went to cafe. Standard museum​ prices, i.e little expensive but quality and quantity was there for bacon+egg and tea. Also ordered cappuccino which although nice standard size is really quite small. Great service overall can't fault it.
  • York's main art gallery has some interesting painting and sculptures in the permanent collection, but the main reason to visit is the fantastic centre of ceramic arts on the second floor. This fantastic collection is further enhanced with frequent talks,workshops and object handling sessions. the gallery has also hosts some very well curated temporary exhibitions. The gallery also has a decent cafe and pretty gardens. You can by a ticket which gives you access to the gallery and the main museums in York here.
  • Recently renovated. Fresh look. The entrance fee quite high so I only got as far as the foyer.
  • Looks like when the garden is finished this will be a lovely place. The work done has really paid off and it has some nice local stuff.

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.
