Less than 40 miles from the Burton Lodge Guest House is the beautiful, historic city of York.

With ancient history, romantic ambience and plenty of fun activities, York really does have something for everyone. Found by the ancient Romans, walk its city walls, explore its quaint cobbled streets, and delve into the city’s vibrant café culture.

With attractions, museums, historic buildings and tours galore, you’ll be in for a fun-filled family day in historic York. This beautiful medieval city is an absolute must-visit for history buffs.

For thrill-seekers, visit the infamous York Dungeon, and hear about the historic city’s gruesome past (but don’t say we didn’t warn you!)

Prefer the pace a little slower?

Visit the winner of Google’s Most Picturesque Street, The Shambles, or book a table at a real Yorkshire institution, Betty’s, serving traditional afternoon teas, pastries, cakes and other delights, and take the weight off your feet.

After a day of exploring the city, head back to the Burton Lodge Guest House to relax and unwind, and enjoy our picturesque grounds and peace and quiet.
