... surround the city.

York is located at the junction of the Rivers Ouse and Foss. York has a rich heritage and has been in existence for 2000 years. The city was founded by the Romans as Eboracum in 71 AD. It became the capital of the Roman province of Britannia Inferior, and later of the kingdoms of Northumbria and Jorvik.

The day was spent exploring the city. There are a number of well touristed areas. The city offers many ...

Today started off great, we woke up! It really only went one way after that. We had decided to go to Horsham St Faiths this morning. We loaded the car and headed off on the Carman trail again. Driving along the road we were coming up to an island in the middle of the road at the same time as a cyclist. Not wanting to kill the cyclist I swerved to avoid him and hit the high kerb at 30mph. Not good. The front tyre ...

Then the tour guide told us about Mary Clitheroe. There is a shrine in a building in the street that is dedicated to her. I will leave it up to you if you let your children read this, obviously mine know so your children may hear about it anyway.

Here is her story......

... series at least twice, much of it was familiar to me. We saw the Post Office, shop, garage, and the pub. The Duchy of Lancaster owns most of the land, and the tenants are allowed to graze their sheep in the town and on the moors, so there are sheep everywhere. (The revenue from the Duchy goes to the sovereign.)

We had a cream tea at the shop. The background music was Cliff Richard, and we were the only patrons until a coach load ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Southlands Guest House York

    Brilliant

    from

    Just come back from a stay at Southlands Guest House, and cannot praise it enough. Extremely friendly couple who run the place, great room, really clean and a great breakfast. Would definately recommend it. Also a lovely short walk through Rowntree Part into York centre.

    Immaculate

    from

    this B & B was lovely, immaculately clean, loads of original features, excellent breakfasts, and the hosts were very polite and friendly . We stayed in one of the family rooms, which was very comfortable and welcoming with all the necessary requirements you need e.g extra draws, fridge, complimentary toiletries, loads of towels. The B & B itself if situated a 10min (very pleasant walk )from town, which in York, most people walk anyway otherwise you will miss loads of the historical attractions. We were actually attending a friends wedding, so have been to York a few times, so i would definately recommend this B & B for all of the above, and for the convenience of the train station and the centre of town. Rowntree Park is a 2 minute walk away, which if you do not want to walk into town via the road you can use the river walk - lovely! and on top of all that the location was perfect, quiet road but yet walking distance from all the action. We actually found this hotel on Trip Advisor as the usual tourist sites are not as accurate as this. Thank you Trip Advisor - Again - well done.

    As good as its gets

    ENGLISH BED & BREAKFAST AT ITS VERY BEST!!!

    This is a really good B&B. Karen and Steve have got a great set up - great hospitality, clean rooms, comfortable beds, spotless en-suite and, to top it all, an excellent breakfast with plenty of healthy options to chose from as well as the usual 'Full English'.

    We went to York for a wedding and had a lovely weekend, thanks in part to Steve and Karen. We will be going to York again (to do all the tourist things) and will definitely stay at Southlands (so long as someone else hasn't booked it first!)

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! 5+

    Really nice guest house

    from

    We have just spent a weekend at Southlands, what a lovely guest house very nicely decorated nice rooms very clean and tidy, great choice for breakfast and plenty of it.

    I've worked in guest houses/ hotels for over 30 years and know my expectations are high, all in all it was very comfortable. Karen and Steve the owners were very helpfull and friendly. Would definately stay again.

    Just pefect

    from

    Southlands was the only place of the many we tried that would offer us a Saturday night only, all the others having a minimum two night stay at weekends. We were very glad that they did as our short stay was excellent in every respect.

    Fantastic Stay!

    from

    We have recently stayed at the Southlands for a 5 day break. We picked Southlands after reading the good reviews on this website. We were very kindly put into room 2 which is a triple room (even though there was only two of us). Room 2 is light and airy and the en suite is well proportioned. There is a fridge in the room to keep water and most importantly chocolate cool. The rooms and the B&B was spotlessly clean with fresh towels supplied every day. You are given your own key to the front door so you can come and go as you please.

    Loved the southlands

    from

    We have just returned from a lovely weekend stay at the Southlands Guest House. We arrived slightly later than we expected and we were greeted with a warm reception which was lovely. The room was large and spacious and extremely clean. We will definately be staying there again in the future.

    Sets the benchmark for excellence

    from

    what a fantastic find. steve and karen have only been running the guest house for a couple of months but you would never know it. EVERYTHING, from arriving to leaving was perfect, the property is beautifully decorated, the standard of the bedding and fittings is beyond reproach and the breakfast was first rate. we had the best nights sleep in a strange bed ever, room two has an ensuite shower and toilet room which is split level, and for some reason makes the room seem bigger than it really is.

    The best place to stay in York!

    from

    As my husband and I are ex-cabin crew we have pretty high expectations of the accomodation we book. Southlands Guest House exceeded these expectations and then some!!

    A lovely guest house

    from

    We stayed at the Southlands Guest House in July 2004 and it was delightful. The lady who runs it is very friendly and our room was clean and very comfortable. We stayed here after we couldn't book in at the Novotel for a second night and I'm really glad we couldn't because it was a pretty grotty hotel and this was charming. If you are in York and want a really nice homely place to base yourself in, not too far from town, I can highly recommend this guesthouse.
