York is a vibrant city that’s packed full of history and culture. Surrounded by stunning scenery and full of adventures, York is the ideal place to visit for a luxury getaway.

This week, we’re looking at how you can make your luxury weekend break in York unforgettable:


Stay With Us at Galtres Lodge

Ultimately, to enjoy your weekend, you need the perfect place to stay. Galtres Lodge is situated in the heart of York, so you have everything you need at your fingertips.

We also have our restaurant, Forest; a comfortable yet stylish eatery with local produce for an authentic York experience. Our cleverly designed menu will immerse you in a true York atmosphere, whilst offering something different and exciting - like our Forest afternoon tea.


Visit the Railway Museum

The Railway Museum is free to visit, although donations are welcome to help keep the attraction going.

As well as being home to the world’s largest railway collection, the museum often has trails, activities, exhibitions, events and galleries to keep you and your family entertained.

You'll have the opportunity to learn all about the history of the railways, which dates back centuries. Why not bring your children along for a fun and educational day out?


Luxury Weekend Break in York: See York From a Different Perspective

Why not take a boat trip on the River Ouse and see York from the water? A calming and luxurious way of discovering the sights, the boat trip will take you past The York Museum and gardens. You’ll also see Clifford’s Tower, the ruinous remains of York Castle’s keep, originally built by William the Conqueror.

The boat trip itself will only take approximately an hour, so, why not take a picnic to enjoy afterwards to extend the experience? 


Treat Yourself to a Tasty Treat In The Fudge Kitchen

The Fudge Kitchen is located next-door-but-one to us and is well worth a visit. The shop features an open kitchen, so you can see the fudge being made throughout the day. They offer free samples, so you can experience the delicious, melt-in-your-mouth treats before you buy them (you won’t be able to resist!)

The Fudge Kitchen offers fudge-making experiences, so you can join in the fun and make your own delicious fudge. It’s great for friends, couples, or families to take part in, so whoever you’re visiting with, you can all enjoy the experience together.

There are wonderful fudge gifts for you to browse and take home for your friends and family - or just for yourself - too, so be sure to pop in and see them. 


Luxury Weekend Break in York: Circulate the City Walls

The elevated walkway circulates the city, so you can meander around the perimeter and soak up the exquisite history York has to offer.

The City Wall walk is approximately 2 miles of medieval masonry, and in the spring the slopes of the old moats are adorned with daffodils.
