... the trip but she said that as the flight wasn't full she couldn't upgrade us but instead she upgraded our luggage to priority and got us the best seats she could in economy. We were really chuffed that they were so pleased to see us as It confirmed that we had got on well with them on the trip. Waving us off and wishing us a good flight we head ...
... with that of missionary bishop to the East Saxons. In 664, shortly after the Synodof Whitby, in which he was a key participant, St. Cedd died of the plague atLęstingau. Bede records that a party of monks from Essex came to mourn him and all but one were all wiped out by the plague. Cedd was first buried outside the wooden monastery but, at some time between 664 and 732, a stone church was erected, and his ...
... Pub and Hotel. This pub is about 300 years old and the only one in England named Queen Catherine. It was of keen interest when William and Catherine were married because one day Catherine will be Queen and the pub and hotel will gain notoriety.
They were offering a "Pensioner's Special" so we all took advantage of it and were even treated to a pot of tea after the meal. Sometimes it pays to be old!
... to our right, the great rocky escarpment of Table Mountain to our left. Coming towards us were hordes of crazy cyclists, pedalling against the elements up and down unforgiving hills. We hadn't time to look at Houts Bay itself - a pity because it has a famous Sunday market - but we went instead to the World Of Birds, a big aviary collection composed mainly of injured birds and animals, ...
... back to the station. We walked past Jamie's Italian restaurant, which looks really cool from the outside, so I had to take a few pictures. And then I spotted a... Cupcake Shop!! It's called Cupcakes by Charley. So I dragged everyone inside with me to get a cupcake to go in a very fancy packaging :-) They even had gluten free ones, but there wasn't enough chocolate on it for me, so I chose the chocolate honeycomb one, which was delicious and ended off the day nicely.

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.
