Trip Report York

Jump to last reply

We spent a night in York last month, at the Dean Court Hotel.

We were wanting a hotel in the centre of York which had parking and this ticked all the boxes. It is an excellent position opposite the west end of the Minster. Rooms were spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Staff are excellent and nothing is too much for them. We enjoyed the three course menu in the restaurant and breakfast was ample. I couldn't manage any toast and didn't ned any lunch.

We started off by visiting the Treasurer’s House, next to the cathedral.

This is somewhere I’ve been wanting to go to for a long time. The present building is C17th and was restored from a near derelict state at the end of the C19th by Frank Green, a wealthy industrialist to show off his collection of furniture.

We skipped the underground tour into the cellars where the ghosts of a defeated Roman legion were seen. The Below Stairs restaurant isn’t very big and I think it could get very busy. We felt it was rather a scruffy place with low ceiling supported by cast iron pillars, bare stone walls and service pipes everywhere. Service was good but the meal was disappointing.

The cathedral is undergoing a massive restoration at the moment and all of the east end was covered with scaffolding. We admired this from the outside.

We visited several of the lovely old churches in the centre of York

These included the delightful Holy Trinity Church tucked away behind Goodramgate with its unspoilt C17th interior with box pews gently subsiding into the nave.

St Martin’s Church on Coney Street was destroyed by German bombs in 1942 and left a smouldering ruin. The south aisle has been rebuilt and rehallowed. It is considered as one of the most successful post war reconstructions in the country, successfully combining C15th remains and modern architecture. Fortunately the glorious C15th stained glass west window was removed at the start of the war for safe keeping. It has now been restored and stands at the back of the north wall.

The Museum Gardens are a wonderful place to drop out on a warm sunny day, with grass, mature trees and flower beds. The ruins of St Mary’s Abbey, St Leonard’s Hospital as well as the multangular tower and section of Roman city wall add extra interest.

Clifford’s Tower standing proud on its motte is probably best admired from the outside. There isn’t a lot left inside, although on a clear days the views from the top of the tower across York are magnificent.

In the time we had available we hardly scratched the surface of all there is to do and see in York. We will have to go back and start to fill in the gaps. We din’t have afternoon tea in Betty’s Tea Rooms, but did buy a fat rascal from their shop.
