Tucked away in the heart of this fascinating Roman city, this luxurious boutique hotel in the heart of the city enjoys a highly desirable location at the centre of the action. A short walk from the Gothic elegance of York Minster, York’s most recognisable and remarkable symbol, guests are on the doorstep of some of the most celebrated architecture in Europe. Marvel at the shimmering vibrancy of the stained glass windows or take a look inside the cathedral itself and be inspired by the magnificent domes of the Chapter House; York Minster will not fail to impress or enchant.
Those fascinated by York’s colourful past can walk to the Jorvik Viking Centre which is located nearby. One of the most popular tourist attractions in the UK, the interactive museum comprised of a reconstruction of a Viking village is complete with genuine artefacts and old Norse speaking ‘citizens’. An ideal day out for families, the Jorvik Viking Centre is built upon the huge archaeological excavation site that inspired the remodelling of the Viking village and is sure to fill its visitors with a sense of adventure and wonder.
Step out of the hotel lobby and walk the few steps to the Shambles, a spectacular preserved medieval street complete with charming cobbled pavements and overhanging timber buildings as if straight from a film set. Lined with quaint traditional tearooms, independent boutiques and old-fashioned gift shops this street is a sheer delight for tourists young and old. Why not indulge in a cream tea or treat yourself to a pretty handmade souvenir?
The central location of this sublimely stylish boutique Secret Hotel guarantees that traditional English pubs serving locally brewed beers and ales, trendy designer bars, fine dining restaurants and family-run bistros are all within short walking distance.
