Few cities rival the historic splendour of York so it is no wonder that it is one of our top selling destinations. Steeped in history spanning 2000 years, York is a compact walled riverside city home to world-class attractions including the stunning York Minster. We stay within the medieval city walls allowing you time to explore the historic centre and its many attractions and  cobbled streets lined with interesting and original shops.
Don’t miss The Shambles, perhaps the most picturesque streets in England complete with overhanging timber-framed houses and traditional shopfronts. York Minster, one of the largest cathedrals in Northern Europe is also on the must do list. In fact, add the excellent Jorvik Viking Centre and National Railway Museum and it’s easy to see why many of our customers choose to spend all their time in the city! York – if you haven’t been – go.

After being collected from your local pick up point (approx. 7.30/8.00am) we have comfort stops on route before arriving at the hotel late afternoon.

DAY 2 
After breakfast we have arranged for a leisurely walking tour of the city centre with a local guide. The remainder of the day is at leisure for you to take advantage of the position of the hotel and visit some of the attractions of York or just relax in a café bar and enjoy the atmosphere.

DAY 3   
A lovely excursion today as we head off to one of England’s most relaxing and innovative gardens, RHS Harlow Carr.  Be inspired by the contemporary planting, the Kitchen Garden and saunter along the Streamside garden. Includes entrance. RHS Member discount - £9

Today we are joined by our local guide for a tour of the Yorkshire Moors. Always popular with our customers - the scenery in the area is spectacular and dotted with lovely towns and villages - it’s Heartbeat country! 

After breakfast we head home. Comfort stops taken on route before returning to the local area around 4.00/5.00pm.

The Queens Hotel

We have been taking groups to The Queens for many years. Ideally situated on the banks of the River Ouse in the heart of the city, the hotel has been one of our most popular locations. Just a short stroll over the river and your York discovery begins with all the major tourist attractions within a 15 minute walk – many much closer. The hotel has a Riverside Bar & Lounge,
perfect for relaxing before your 3 course dinner in the restaurant with choice of menu. Good standard of food at The Queens.

Over the last few years many improvements have been made with standards raised in the bedrooms and public areas. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms with power shower, tea/coffee making facilities, television, hairdryer and direct dial telephone. Lift to all floors.
