Welcome to HotelGuide.Networks' directory of hotels and hotel reviews for York, England!
As the north's spiritual capital, the walled riverside city of York stands as an ecclesiatical epicenter for Britain's colorful royal history. Cruising along the River Ouse via YorkBoat provides a watery overview. Attractions beside York Minster's Gothic splendor include the York Castle Museum and National Railway Museum, countless galleries, and opportunity to browse the medieval shopping streets of Stonegate and Shambles, pre-dating the Norman Conquest and now lined with jewelry shops and cafes. A variety of guided and self-guided walks in and around the city provide added appeal, showing off stunning castles, impressive houses, and idyllic parks. And since pain, superstition, torture, and death also haunt Britain's bloody past, the popular, if gruesome, York Dungeon showcases 2,000 years of authentic horror, recreating in excruciating detail such scenes as St. George being sawn in half and Guy Fawkes being tortured to reveal other conspirators behind the Gunpowder Plot of 1605. Or of Shambles resident Margaret Clitherow being fatally crushed under a pile of stones after being accused of harboring Catholic priests during the Elizabethan period when Catholic Europe attempted to topple the Queen.
Modern York, as a more hospitable year-round destination, offers a vibrant café bar and restaurant culture along with lively entertainment and festivals. Shopping blends with sightseeing, especially within the traffic-free heart of York, where book dealers, antique shops, and crafts boutiques abound. As a touring base, York is about two hours by rail from London, Edinburgh and Manchester. York accommodations range from campgrounds and hotels, to guest houses including bed and breakfasts and hotels, many quite splendid.
