By Air

York is within easy travelling distance of 3 international airports: Leeds/Bradford, Humberside and Manchester.

From Manchester International Airport, frequent trains provide the city with a direct round the clock link.

Alternatively, the London Airports (Stansted, Heathrow and Gatwick) have many international flights, although you may have to travel through London to get to York, this can be difficult with luggage.

By train

For train times see Network Rail Timetable. The nearest station is York. Tickets are cheaper if purchased in advance, but can easily be bought on the day. An Open Return ticket allows you to travel back on the same ticket within a month.

The hotel is next to the station: turn left at the front of the station and the entrance is 40 metres away.
