Beautiful York

Come and join us for a change of scenery and a chance to get away to beautiful York for the weekend. Perhaps take tea in the late afternoon on the sun terrace at the hotel (weather permitting of course!) before meeting your host and fellow guests on Thursday evening for a welcome drink followed by dinner and a fun quiz.

Soak up the history

After breakfast, it’s time to head into the city for our morning guided walking tour. Discover the turbulent and fascinating history of York through the sights and tales told. View the City Walls, the famous Shambles and the imposing Clifford’s Tower. Originally built by William the Conqueror, it is all that remains of York Castle today, having once served as a prison and royal mint. A visit wouldn’t be complete without seeing the stunning York Minster Cathedral; it’s the largest Gothic cathedral in Northern Europe and can be dated back to the 4th century.

Time to explore

The rest of the day is yours to explore. Have lunch in one of the many cafés or a drink by the river before perhaps heading to The National Railway Museum? For something a little different, try the famous Jorvik Viking Centre. It’s a re-creation of the life led by the Viking invaders in York in AD867, complete with sounds and smells of the market and houses. Back at the hotel in the evening, meet up for pre-dinner drinks before heading out for dinner. Saturday morning is free to head back into York for some final sightseeing and shopping.

Gratuities

There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below. The Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual.We suggest a group collection at the beginning of your holiday to cover drivers, guides and hotel staff (including restaurant, kitchen and reception staff) of approximately £5. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of bar staff and housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (the rounding up of the drinks bill and a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, restaurants expect a 10% gratuity (do check that service has not already been added to your bill). For taxis 10% of the metered fare.

Dress Code

The dress code for during the day is casual. In the evenings the dress code is smart with gentlemen requested to wear a shirt and tie. Comfortable shoes for walking and sightseeing are recommended.
