Discover a historic and cultural city

York is a historic and cultural centre

York has so much to offer as a city even if you are only here for a few days. It is a city where ancient and modern walk hand in hand; a city founded nearly 2000 years ago by the Romans, occupied by the Vikings  but one packed with the latest attractions – indeed something for everyone.

Explore York with ease

MonkBridge house is in the perfect location for you to explore all that York has to offer. You can easily walk into the city centre and visit the many award-winning attractions such as the Jorvik Viking Centre, York Minster, The National Railway Museum, York Castle Museum and the York Chocolate Story. We are also close to the universities and York Racecourse.

Our check-in times are typically from 3pm-7pm but we can be flexible to meet your needs.  For example, we can offer a self check-in procedure, though this does need to be arranged in advance of your stay.  If you are arriving by car we do have a private car park accessed from Park Grove but please reserve a place in advance.

Travelling by car

You can get to York quickly from the UK motorway network. Travelling north on the M1 or A1 you’ll come to the A64 intersection.  The city is 20 minutes away via dual carriageway. Travelling south on the A1, you’ll also leave the motorway at the A64.  From the west on the M62, join the M1 northbound until you reach the intersection with the A64.

Travelling by train

York is well served by the train network. It is easy to catch one of the regular trains stopping in York (visit the Trainline to check  travel plans).  From the station it is possible to walk to MonkBridge House (about 25 minutes).  Alternatively there are usually many taxis available in front of the station.  You can also catch the No. 13 or No. 14 bus towards Haxby from the railway station.

Great location in York

“Brilliant find! We were attending my son’s wedding at a venue just outside York and we couldn’t have picked a better place. It’s easy walking distance into the city, and has parking which is a real bonus. The rooms are brilliant, spacious, clean and very comfortable. The owners seemed to have thought of everything to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The breakfasts were amazing with lots of home made goodies and everything freshly cooked to order. We will definitely be back!
