... of which the large Cathedral York Minster is the most prominent. The "Shambles" is also very popular, having provided inspiration to "Diagon Alley" in Harry Potter. It features a number of shops in a narrow cobbled stoned alley way.
The kids were quite fascinated by the cat trail of York. There are many cat figurines and statues decorating the buildings. The cats were put on the buildings to scare away the rats which brought plague and other ...
... and there was a room for us! We have (reluctantly) moved in and it appears OK. Apart from the lack of Wi-Fi and even cellular. As an aside we have struggled to get decent cellular all over UK, and I have never had 4G. Anyway, a quick glimpse of the Minster and we are ready for bed! Have to say a HUGE Happy Birthday to Mary (as it is the 9th in NZ). A trip round York tomorrow, some washing and off to Sunderland. Good ...
... followed. Back outside and on our way to the castle museum we were surprised by some heavy rain! Of course we didn't have any umbrella so we ran through the streets looking for public washrooms. Once we found them a lovely lady gave us some garbage bags to use and we continued to the hostel. After drying off we ate our leftovers, the fresh fruit and some local chocolate we had purchased ...

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......
In 1586, she was arrested for not attending protestant church services 3 Sundays in a row for ...
... the city centre, and it also looked a bit depressed.
The next stop cheered us up. We visited Brodsworth Hall near Doncaster in South Yorkshire. It is one of the most complete examples of a Victorian house in England. It has been preserved it, as is, instead of restoring it. It was dark, drab,and a bit shabby, but authentic and so very interesting, with much of the original furniture, chandeliers and artwork still in place. There are guides in every room, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Premier Inn York City Centre - Blossom Street North
I was very impressed with the location of the Travel Inn. It is only a 5 minute walk from the Station and right in front of the Micklegate entrance through the City Wall. We walked everywhere and only ever seemed to be a 15 min walk back to the hotel.
Awesome location next to Mickelgate
Literally a stone's throw from the Mickelgate entrance to Yorks city walls. This property also has limited on site car park which was a great thing since parking is scarce in York. However, if you need internet, as of May 2, 2006 they dont have wireless, still only has dial up. Like most rooms of this chain, reasonable size, clean rooms, clean property, nice and helpful staff.
We set out on foot and walked to Jorvik viking center, York Minster and all the other major sites was an easy walk.
Good But expensive.
Rooms: The room was great very specious and clean with a huge bed and a balcony overlooking the river and the rest of York.
Food & Drink: N/A
Staff: Friendly enough never had any problems.
Overall: A good hotel in a very good area of York very close to all the sites and the nightlife. But the hotel is quite pricey.
Great stay at travel inn
This hotel is in a great location for all of Yorks attractions,very clean and comfortable with very friendly staff.Stayed over easter with husband and two children in a large non smoking family room which was excellent value for money.We didn't bother eating at the hotel but had breakfast at Wetherspoons over the road(much cheaper).I wouldn't hesitate staying here again.p.s the Yorkshire Wheel is great!
excellent hotel! as pilots we stay en-route alot of the time, and with its fantastic location we could take advantage of the brilliant night life whilst having a fantastic trip! cheers x
Clean, friendly and comfortable
Stayed here for two nights at the beginning of October half-term. Arrived early - hotel had been booked out so couldn't check in but no problems parking car in CCTV car-park.
Friendly service, good clean room, helpful staff. Breakfast not bad.
Great location for exploring York.
All in all a great place to stay.
Did the job
The location, service, staff and bedrooms are fantastic however the motel should not take stag parties when there are children staying.
The noise and language was disgusting and made us ashamed to be British.
I cant begin to imagine what state the rooms would be like for the poor chambermaids to clean.
We saw grown men urinating in the car park and being sick out of the window.
Do yourselves a favour Premier Lodge "Try and vet your customers"
Great hotel, great value, great location.
Excellant value for money and a great location just outside the city walls. Room was clean, spacious, and well positioned above the courtyard. Pleanty of pubs and restaurants right by the hotel. Staff were friendly and courteous. Would definately stay here again.
Family weekend away
Perfect location and accommodation particularly for family weekend. Great value and a first class standard of housekeeping compared to the dodgy 'family room' which we had in another York hotel. Would recommend to all young and old, singles, couples or families. Couldn't be faulted.
This hotel has the best staff we have met in along time. From the restaurant staff who treated our children brilliantly to reception who made us feel very welcome. The hotel offers great value and the rooms are clean and kept to a high standard
