York-Accomodations and Train Station

by dbarnett5

I'll be arriving in London early on May 24, plan to spend the day exploring London before taking a late train to York. It may be late (near midnight) before I get to York. Are there accomodations close to the train station? Also, will I have any difficulty getting taxi service at that hour? Finally, approximately how long will it take me to drive from York to Sunderland?

www.visityork.org lists all available accommodation in the city, and has online city centre maps so you can see what is where. It's not that big a place (I wonder if you have looked at a US-based website which implies that the railway station is 16 miles + from any hotels etc???) so you shouldn't have a problem.

The station is pretty near the centre of the city, within easy walking distance (about 10 minutes max to the absolute centre). There's a taxi-rank right outside the station entrance; if there are trains, there will be taxis (though you might have to wait a bit, depending).

York to Sunderland should take a bit less than 2 hours, depending on traffic. Use www.theaa.com/travelwatch/planner_main.jsp?database=B to plan your route (make sure you choose the right Sunderland!).

Indeed there are taxis in a rank outside the station exit (and just around the corner to the right up the hill there is a cab office if it gets too quiet at the station).

The station is right in the city centre so there is not a lot of walking involved. In fact, one of York's top hotels is next door to the station - the Royal York:

But if that's above your budget, there is also Park Inn, just five minute's walk from the station, inside the city walls (hotel is along the river):

Are you hiring a car to go to Sunderland? Do you really need to drive? There are regular trains from York - we can advise if you want train help.

When I leave Sunderland I want to go north into Scotland, stopping wherever looks interesting. Also, I want to have everything ready to head north once I finish with my meeting in Sunderland. That's the main reason for the car.

Good point - good luck with driving in the UK.

Travel Tips for York

Walk around the city walls

by cheekymarieh

Walk around the city walls and admire the views. It is a 2 1/2 mile walk but well worth the effort. The best time to go is early in the morning when there are less tourists around. As you walk around the walls you can see the York of days gone by.

Whip-Ma-Whop-Ma Gate

by yooperprof

The longest street name in York, and the shortest street. 35 meters long.

One web site I looked at explained that the name derives from what was originally a longer expression that had the meaning of "neither one thing nor the other." Oh.

It's essentially an intersection - where Fossgate becomes Colliergate, and St. Saviourgate and The Stonebow come together. (You really ought to get a map!)

That building right in front of the (often photographed) street sign is the St. Crux Parish Hall. I'm not sure who St. Crux was, but I did discover the main church was destroyed in 1887.

THE KIDS ARE BREAKING UP! BRIT LIFE ©

by DAO

”The children break up on Friday” Truly chilling words. Will their tiny arms and legs suddenly fall off? Will they become decapitated suddenly? All of them? This tip has been written on 18 July 2008. They day the kids break-up in England. Before you become very scared or are afraid you will see little body parts littering the roads in school uniforms – it’s OK. Really. ‘Breaking up’ is a British expression meaning the schools are closing for the summer holidays or other breaks during the year and the children are off school for a while. The first time I heard it I could only imagine complete carnage.

Early morning walks

by lou31

Each day wherever I went I made a point of taking an early morning walk before breakfast. It is surprising what you see at such an hour. You get to see the comings and goings of people and things not seen during the day. It gives you a real feel for the area.
And you can have a good look at the lovely front gardens along the streets. Another bonus is you get to work off some of the calories you are about to ingest at the breakfast table.

Part four

by iandsmith

The history of Fountains did not end with the Dissolution. In 1540, the abbey and much of its property was sold to Sir Richard Gresham, and later resold to Stephen Proctor, who built Fountains Hall partly out of stone from the Abbey's ruins. In 1768 Fountains Hall, along with the ruins of the Abbey, were sold to William Aislabie. The seventeenth and eighteenth centuries were characterized by, among other things, the belief in natural law and, consequently, a romanticized view of nature. Often, these beliefs transformed the countryside, from a wild, irratic place into a vision of orderliness. Wealthy nobles sought to create this idealistic vision of nature as regular and orderly by incorporating Greco-Roman antiquities into beautiful landscapes. The haunting, majestic ruins of Fountains Abbey became one of the elements in the landscaping of Fountains Hall. Their role as decor for the new Fountains Hall and grounds, however, does not diminish the importance and legacy of the life once lived here. The extravagantly beautiful grounds present today still recall a more simple vision of nature and the once vital life exemplified here. Through the ruins of Fountains, set in an idyllic setting nestled among the forest and River Skell, the monks who once lived, worked, and prayed here still speak to us today through the majestic, soaring nave and vast expanse of its ruins. The presence of these Cistercian monks reworked the English economy, and inspired in the medieval period a renewed love of God through their life of work, study, and prayer. For those who have visited Fountains and have walked through its ruins, the presence of these monks is still alive today, and still serves as a testament to the balanced life of Ora et Labora .
