Day 8. We made quite a late start leaving the hotel at 10.30 am. We walked from the Hotel which was located next to the race course back into the old city centre about 25 minutes away by foot. We entered the city at the "Micklegate" from where we walked up onto the city wall. York is an historic walled city. The wall surrounds much of the old city which can be entered by the various gates. During the day we managed to walk most of the entire length of the ...
... then said the Alloy was OK to be used again and just for a new tyre to be put on. Another hour and a half later we found we had to drive to Peterborough as it was the only place that had the tyre we required, so we had to drive on a space saver tyre for 130km. Just as we were about to leave, our Hotel from last night phoned. We had left some stuff there! We travelled slowly to Peterborough via Park Farm Hotel, arriving at ...
... We made the mistake of each ordering food and were amazed by the side of the portions when they came out! Luckily they gave us a take away box and we saved it for later. After lunch we walked up through the shambles and looked around a local market (purchasing some fresh strawberries and raspberries) before heading up to the York Minster. After snapping a few pictures we went to explore ...
There are quite a few "ghost" tours to do in York - I guess being such an old town it's likely that there may be 'ghosts' or at least stories. We chose the York Terror Trail as this departed and returned to a cute little pub that is said to be haunted.
This tour, however, wasn't about ghosts. It was about a lot of the terrible things that have happened in York throughout the thousands of years.
Our first stop was at The Shambles - that ...
We lounged around the house today, reading and snoozing. We want plenty of energy for the next and final stage of our trip down through Europe.
Our house here in York is lovely, although it is hard getting used to the front window being right on the footpath, so passersby are inches away from us.

Historical Traveler Reviews Park Inn by Radisson York
Not a 4 star!!
The Viking Moat House is in a good location. You can walk to all attractions, shops, restaurants easily. The rooms are clean, the bathrooms could use some updating however. The views are spectacular.
The all you can eat breakfast which is included in the price was okay.
My only gripe was the beds are too hard and uncomfortable. I did not sleep well for the two nights I stayed there. Although I had no major problems, I would rate this hotel only 3* tops.
Stayed here in Dec. 2003 for 2 nights. Hotel was not aesthetically impressive in any way, but I personally don't care about that kind of thing. Can anyone tell me what constitutes a non-smoking room in this part of the world? Cleaning out the ash tray? Changing the sheets?
Room: I had a river-view room, which had a view not only of the river, but a great view of the Minster. Not sure what the view was like on the other side of the hotel (the river-view costs more, but I think worth it). The room itself was pretty standard. It was clean, although the bathroom could do with a bit of updating.Location: Across the river from the main shopping/tourist area. It takes about 5-10 minutes to walk, which isn't too bad. There is very little in the immediate vicinity of the hotel.Staff: Friendly, efficient, but there didn't seem to be enough of them at the front desk. When I checked out, the line was about 6-7 people long. It took me a while to find a concergie so I could leave my bag for the day.Public Areas: The elevators are extremely slow, but, if you are there to relax, then Relax! The exterior is pretty ugly... apparantly it won some sort of architectural award, but that is really hard to imagine.Cost: A bit expensive, given what you get. I didn't think it really warranted the 4 stars (and the 4 star price).Overall, perfectly fine hotel. I'd consider staying there again, depending on the price and what else is available.
i asked for 2 boiled eggs 29/10/03,they arrived after a 20 min wait.minus egg cups. The waitress said we have no egg cups in the hotel.I informed reception and was told the problem would be solved. When i ordered the same breakfast 30/10/03,2 eggs were again served without egg cups,the waitress said again no egg cups. What a sad state when a 200 room hotel has no egg cups. After 2 spoiled breakfasts i shall not be booking into that hotel again.
So much to do
Great River view room, overlooking York with the Minster right in front of you. Great location, 2 minute walk to shops, pubs etc. Only stayed for bed & breakfast, but at the Hotel prices (8£ for a sandwich!) it was cheaper to eat out, with plenty around to choose from. Great freindly staff and rooms kept clean and tidy. Would definately stay there again, and will as there is just so much to see and do in York.
Great location with fine views
You can't beat the location: across the river from town and walking distance to the train station. But the hotel is pretty drab. The only reason to stay here is to book a river view room. York is wonderful (talk about great pubs!) so I'd happily return here if just for the location.
Viking Moat House
The elevators were marginally functional, the room was tiny - we were promised a river view room and instead got one facing the interior courtyard. We felt very disappointed and more than a little ripped off. The hotel is understaffed - the front desk was staffed by one person only and she was frankly overwhelmed. I would not recommend... we were happy that we would only be there one night while we were in transit to another part of Yorkshire.
Rooms basic but clean food okay but price more than makes up for any failings
Upon viewing the hotel from its exterior, one would think that the drab 60's building would be equally as uninviting on the interior. I was wrong. The hotel is infact the 2nd highest building in the city (apart from York Minster).
