Don't Go Home Without

You can take a seat in a Japanese Shinkansen bullet train, peek into Queen Victoria's royal carriages and watch a turntable in action at the National Railway Museum, four miles away, in the city centre. Look out for the record-breaking Mallard and a replica of Stephenson's Rocket among the locomotive collection, and watch craftsmen at work from the balcony above the museum's restoration workshop.

Must See

Only three miles from the hotel, York Minster towers above the city skyline. Book a free tour to see medieval stained-glass windows and an interactive exhibition exploring the cathedral's history in the underground chambers of The Undercroft. Climb the 275 steps up the Central Tower to reach York's highest point and enjoy panoramic views of the city and the surrounding countryside.

Must Do

The high-street chains and international fashion retailers at Vangarde & Monks Cross Shopping Park are only a mile's drive from the hotel. You can browse through everything from designer labels and trendy boutiques to stylish furniture and arts and crafts. When you're all shopped out, put your feet up in a café or a restaurant to indulge in a slice of pizza or a home-made scone.

Local Tips

You can jump on a steam train in the town of Pickering, 30 minutes' drive from the hotel, to ride the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. Hop off at Levisham or Newton Dale Halt to explore the North York Moors National Park on foot, or travel all the way to Whitby's sandy beach. Trains run daily from March to October, and you can enjoy lunch or dinner at weekends on the lavish Pullman dining service.
