... visit. After our visit we walked to Betty's to have cake and tea. Unfortunately there was a very long queue. David and I don't do queues and peering through the windows it just looked like everyone was crammed on top of each other. Personally I prefer Fortnum and Masons Diamond Jubilee Tea Room. We spent the rest of the day walking up and down the various lanes window shopping and then had a very pleasant walk back along the river and got back just before the ...
... as with other locks onto a tidal stretch to come out with a lot of revs to help with the steering control, save it for the bridges!". I see what he meant, the river is flowing pretty fast, so we are already doing twice the normal cruising speed circa 7/8 knots and there are two big bridges right in front of us. Power is needed to control the boat to make it safely through the arches with cars ...
... a "duck weed" issue on the Selby Canal but were surprised on how much there was and how green it was, it didn't look like there was a canal at all, under the luminous green covering.
Selby is a very pleasant small town and we moored in the basin at the junction with the River Ouse, well placed for our for our early set off time with tide on the way up to York ...
We are on the way again after a week at home. John and Vanessa join us at Lemonroyd Lock by the Marina and we head off on the second stage of our summer trip. First stop is Castleford to fill up with diesel, a simple process you might think, just like filling the car!!
Not quite so easy on the boat.
Two hours later after the chap at the Marina who was ...

We spent the afternoon exploring some of York's outdoor markets before dad and I split off to walk along York's Medieval walls and then explore the Jorvik viking center (for a full description of this attraction, see my earlier entries). While wondering around the town, dad and I happened upon York's Theater and picked up some tickets for Avenue Q, which was showing that night.
After a quick ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Bloomsbury York
A brief visit
My partner and I had a brief stop over at this charming B&B and thought it wonderful. The hosts were very welcoming, the rooms had everything you needed and the English breakfast is to die for. We will be back for a longer stay in the warmer months.
Very enjoyable stay.
Apologies for not sending this earlier as it was August when we visited York and ive had a mad summer.
My girlfriend and i had York for a pre-school term break and found the whole experience delightful. The Bloomsbury was wonderful from arrival to departure, the rooms, the service and the food.
York itself is so cultural and so chilling. We will be back sooner than later and will repeat our stay at this charming B&B.
I stayed here with my partner while the St Nicholas Fayre was on. Although it is a little far out of the city I couldnt fault the B&B. The rooms were beautifully decorated and clean, service second to none and the breakfast scrummy.
I wouldnt hesitate to stay here again on our return to York.
A little far out
We stayed here in October and although the hotel was lovely it is a 30 minute walk into the City, not ideal when youre this side of 50. You could drive in but the parking is so expensive £14 a day.
We really enjoyed York and there is lots to do and see and some fantastic restaurants. Give The Olde Grey Mare a miss it is a little rough at night time.
Excellent guest house
My partner and I enjoyed a 4 night midweek break at the Bloomsbury in September and we can't praise it enough.
It is situated a good 15 minute walk from the Minster area of the City but you can catch a frequent park and ride bus from round the corner which is cheap and takes you right into the City centre.
Our room was spotless with a lovely view of a church out of our window.
Excellent service and we will visit again.
City break in York
Immaculately clean and tastefully decorated rooms. Friendly and welcoming staff and a hearty breakfast.
We had a very enjoyable time in York, staying at the Bloomsbury. The owners were very helpful and our room was spacious and immaculately clean. We had a tasty full English breakfast with poached egg, served in the elegant large dining room. The whole experience was very pleasant and we will be returning.
comfortable and beautifully decorated room with its own character - warm welcome, friendly atmosphere - good breakfasts - easy-to-find convenient location. Very recommendable. I will return.
We stayed here two nights and found it to be quite pleasant. The rooms are charming, the owners helpful, and the breakfast good. There is a city bus stop just around the corner so the trip into town is easy and quite short. You could walk if you wanted to. I would definitely recommend.
The Very Best
We could not have expected any more. The rooms are extremely comfortable, superbly clean and very tastefully decorated. Breakfast is delicious.Hosts are wonderful and very knowledgeable. A real home from home in a lovely location. We will be back again and again.
