DISCOVERING YORK

Centrally located hotel

This spring break offers plenty of time to enjoy ancient York from our central base in the wonderful city. Set within the city walls its ancient beauty includes exquisite architecture, quaint cobbled streets and the iconic York Minster. Whilst based in York we also cross the rugged North Yorkshire Moors to visit the seaside town of Whitby.

The three star Queens Hotel is located perfectly in the centre of York on the banks of the River Ouse. The Riverside Lounge affords lovely views and all rooms have excellent facilities. There is a lift to some floors.
