York

A historic walled city in northeast England, one of our Mercure hotels in York is a great place to be based if you’re planning a business trip in the North Yorkshire area or just looking to get away for the weekend. For those who want to experience some medieval history, Clifford’s Tower in the south of the city is a must. A 13th century keep, the castle has been used for many things during its history – including a mint and a prison as recently as 1929 – but is now home to a museum run by English Heritage, and some of the best panoramic views of the city. Continue on your path through York’s history and head north from the castle through the famous Shambles. The city’s most famous road, it gets its name from the number of butchers’ shops that used to display their meat on the street. Although the butchers are now gone and have been replaced by eateries and souvenir sellers, the overhanging timber-framed buildings they used to call home are still there and well worth a visit. Before heading back to your room and its luxurious bed, finish your stroll through the city at York Minster. The largest gothic cathedral in northern Europe, it took 242 years to build the magnificent structure, with it home to some beautifully crafted stained glass windows. Climb the central tower and take a tour with one of the Minster’s knowledgeable volunteers.
