Luxury Apartment in the heart of historic York
York, North Yorkshire, England
Additional Location Information
7 Aspire Holiday Apartment is located less than 100m from Bootham Bar, one of the historic gates to the walled city of York. The apartment has views of York Minster only 250m away to the east, and overlooks St Mary's Abbey walls and ruins to the south towards the River Ouse. The area around Bootham Bar is a mixture of Regency and Victorian buildings - everything from grand façades to humble red brick, a mixture of retail, office, entertainment and residential properties.
York is one the country's main tourist centres. There is a multitude of things to see and do only minutes away on foot, places to shop as well as cafes, bars and restaurants of all types. York is renowned for its architecture, museums and its cultural heritage, including theatres, cinemas and street entertainment. For those here for a longer stay, the area around York contains many attractions, from stately homes to theme parks, from magnificent countryside to traditional English seaside; the choice of attractions within one hour travelling of York, could fill holidays for years.
York is served by a main-line railway station and national coach links, which arrive just a 3 minute taxi ride from the apartment. For those arriving by car/motorcycle, York is accessed from a network of good quality motorways and dual carriageways, with free parking for one vehicle provided in the public car park adjacent to the apartment, and secure cycle storage/motorcycle parking on the ground floor. York is 45 minutes drive from Leeds/Bradford airport, less than an hour's drive from Robin Hood Airport (Doncaster) and about one and a half hour's drive from Manchester and East Midlands airports, served by a mixture of scheduled, charter and low-cost airlines from around Europe and beyond.
For our long-haul visitors arriving at London-Heathrow airport, guests should allow 6+ hours from landing if driving to York (90mins baggage/immigration/car rental collection, 4½ hours driving/rest stops), or 4+ hours if taking the train to York (60mins baggage/immigration, 60mins Piccadilly-line underground to Kings Cross railway station, ~2 hours Kings Cross to York). If taking the train, don't be tempted to take the Heathrow Express - this is a fast rail link to Paddington, however, once you get to Paddington you still need to get to Kings Cross, involving either a taxi or a switch to the underground anyway; the time saved is minimal, involves more bag carrying, and is more expensive!
