York UK – City Centre – Why Stay Here ?
York is a historical city found in England and is it often regarded as the country’s most frequented visited city after London. It is fairly small, and despite its many attractions, it doesn’t require too much time to explore. Even a short term holiday of four or so days can be enough for anyone to see all the major attractions.
York Apartments to Rent (for 1 night or longer)
This therefore makes it perfect for weekend getaways and romantic breaks. It’s a nice place to visit with your spouse, or even tour with your kids. If you have been uncertain about where to go to for your next trip, heading to this charming city will make your efforts worthwhile.
Places of Interest
Owing to its amazing character and history, there are just as many people who love to live in York as there are those who like to visit. If you want to make the most of your trip here though, you might want to consider walking around the town’s city centre rather than biking or driving.
If you are not in the mood to move around on foot though, you can choose to ride in a horse and cart which will allow you to move at a moderate pace, and ensure that you enjoy every bit of the picturesque surroundings.
Some of the amazing places you are bound to see during such tours include the Shambles, the National Railway Museum, and the Merchant Adventure’s Hall. Treasurer’s House, Fairfax House, Museum Gardens and Clifford’s’ Tower are some of the other main attractions you shouldn’t leave without seeing.
Cheap apartment rentals – Sorting out your accommodation needs
Standing proud on a hill is York Minster, with its magnificent architecture and vibrant stained glass windows. Wander around the Shambles, a cobbled and narrow street with timbered framework and traditional shops. The Jorvik Viking Centre showcases the town’s Viking heritage. Using sound, sense and sight interaction this centre will give you an impression how life was in the Anglo Saxon era. The nearby National Railway Museum is the largest of its kind in the world. It houses the Flying Scotsman and Mallard trains.
The apartments to rent offer fully fitted kitchens with all appliances and crockery for dining in. The modern kitchens have an oven, microwave and refrigerator, and kitchenware is provided. Most city centre rentals and penthouses also feature a seating area with a flat-screen TV. These York self catering lets are perfect for short breaks. Still, just like any other facilities, the amenities they offer vary from place to place. Some have refrigerators, microwaves, coffee makers and Wi-Fi, while others are just basic rooms with the most essential features.
It’s a popular city, so plan well ahead for the best deals. It can be busy especially if you visit during one of the city’s many festivals or races, held at the racecourse. Both Leeds and Hull are within easy reach.
If your intention is to pay for something cheap, opting for the latter would be more reasonable. You only need to ensure that it meets your desired standards of quality even if you only mean to stay for one night. Keep in mind though, if you are heading out for a long holiday, you should look out for places that have deals as prolonged stays tend to come with significantly discounted rates.
