Good, reliable taxi services on an evening in York??

by Kaysta

I think i'll be using a few taxis in York, as i'll be wearing a lot of heels that i simply cannot walk in on a night!

Do you know any taxis that are reliable for weekends? A few if you can, just incase :)

Thank you very much!

Depends where you are staying and where you want to go.
If you are in a hotel then they will call a reliable taxi for you
I was in York recently and there are many taxis around the City that are reliable.
Some of the City centre is pedestrianised so cars don't go there so walking is unavoidable

Would it not be easier to wear shoes "fit for purpose" and take the pretty ones in a bag?

Do like the locals and walk barefooted.

You will not have any difficulty in finding reliable taxis: you'll be aware that taxis are tightly regulated in the UK.

Either ask your hotel to provide you with local mini-cab numbers, as suggested, or go to the nearest taxi rank. Ranks are listed on this page:

http://www.york.gov.uk/transport/Taxis/Taxi_ranks/

(You will note there are 3 part-time ranks especially for 3 major nightclubs).

The point about pedestrianisation is valid: you will have to do some walking, so a bag or barefeet will be almost certainly essential if you are in the city centre.

I absolutely love York and especially going out in York but I have had some reslly bad experiences with taxi companies there. I just don't know why as how can London taxi's be more reliable, but they are! I now stay over in York as http://www.iknow-yorkshire.co.uk list a load of b&b's with offers and discounts for that particular week. By the time you have paid out for 2 taxi's you may as well stay over and make a real night of it.

Travel Tips for York

Yellow Man

by Nixter01

Street entertainers are everywhere and the Yellow Man was no exception.Here he is sitting very, very still until you put money in his little box. Fascinating These guys, they just amazw me, but so doe the whole of York

YORK CITY WALLS

by LoriPori

Some sections of YORK CITY WALLS date back to Roman times. When the Romans first came here in the first century A.D., they built a military fort on the banks of the River Ouse. Strong walls were built to enclose both the Fort and Town.
The three main gateways in to the old city stand at Bootham Bar, Monk Bar, Walmgate Bar and Micklegate Bar which is the main entrance to the city and also the traditional entry point for Kings and Queens visiting York.
You can even walk along its 3.4 km distance. It takes about two hours. Walking along the Medieval Ramparts of York is also the favourite leisure activity of many of the locals.

Give us a tune Kieron

by toontraveller

Most towns and cities have their share of musicians and buskers these days usually in the form of a guitar or saxophone player or a band of drummers but I can't say i've seen many pianists, have you?

York however is blessed with two of them and this guy's my favourite. Keiron not only plays the piano but he'll happily entertain you with everything from Debussy's Claire de Lune to the theme from the teletubbies.

My tip - give him some spare change and ask for a request. It will cheer you up no end.

Rievaulx Abbey Ruins

by Pixiekatten

The abbey was founded by St Bernard of Clairvaux, as part of the missionary effort to reform Christianity in western Europe. Just 12 Clairvaux monks came to Rievaulx in 1132. From these modest beginnings grew one of the wealthiest monasteries of medieval England and the first northern Cistercian monastery.
A steady stream of monks came to Rievaulx Abbey, attracted by the prestige of Abbot Aelred, author and preacher, who was regarded then and later as a wise and saintly man. Following his death in 1167, the monks of Rievaulx sought canonisation for their former leader, and in the 1220s they rebuilt the east part of their church in a much more elaborate style to house his tomb.
Rievaulx was still a vibrant community when Henry VIII dissolved it in 1538. Its new owner, Thomas Manners, first Earl of Rutland, swiftly instigated the systematic destruction of the buildings.

by Carmela71

One of the most interesting places i was willing to visit was this street, the shortest streeet with the longest name.

Other visits are: Yorkshire Museum, Clifford’s Tower, The Shambles - one of the best preserved medieval streets in Europe , the Fairfax house one of the best historic monuments in England, the Jorvik viking center, where you will see how viking life was really like, Merchant Adventures hall and the National Railway Museum, where they tell you the history of the train
