Getting around
We are right in the centre of the old, walled part of the city and you really don't need a car during your stay as everything you might want to see is within easy walking distance including cafes, restaurants and food shops. Car Hire is available at the train station and there are lots of bus routes close by. Longer trips to the surrounding area are also available by bus and the Visit York centre across the road from the apartment has lots of information.
