York has been hailed as Britain’s most beautiful city, with its towering Minster, knot of medieval streets and encircling walls. The wide flowing River Ouse offers the chance for river cruises, while the narrow Shambles is the most famous street in York, overhung with timber-framed buildings and punctured with butchers’ hooks. All our self catering accommodation is within these ancient City Walls and all that York has to offer. Our luxury fully serviced self catering apartments in Skeldergate provide one and two bedroomed accommodation for city-breaks and longer stays.
Getting here on the scenic train route is part of the pleasure, whether you take a rapid non-stop service from London or hug the coastline as you approach from the North. The city officially has the Best Cycle Rail Station in the UK, and exploring the streets as well as the surrounding countryside and visitor attractions, farm shops and stately homes by bike from one of our luxury serviced apartments in York couldn’t be easier.
York has been voted the best gastro destination in the UK, both for its rich variety of restaurants as well as its amazing history of chocolate-making. York has been home to some of the biggest names in chocolate such as Rowntree’s Kit Kat, Smarties, and Aero along with Terry’s Chocolate Orange, all created in the city. Above all though, this is a warmhearted place; stop to look at a map and a local will try to help, go on a ghost tour and you’ll find yourself deep in conversation with the guide, ask for directions while out cycling and you’ll have your answer from any number of helpful locals.
Whatever you choose to do, our luxury serviced self catering apartments in York City Center provide the ideal location for visiting all of York's attractions.
