Christmas in Historic York

4* Mercure Fairfield Manor Hotel

One of the best preserved medieval cities in Europe, the rich history of York stretches out before you as you walk along the city’s walls and narrow shopping lanes. Standing out above all is York Minster, the largest Gothic Cathedral in England, whilst close by is the medieval shopping street known as the Shambles. There are some interesting museums including the Jorvik Viking Museum and Castle Museum and the city also has a variety of restaurants and cafes together with excellent shopping facilities.


The 4* Mercure Fairfield Manor Hotel was originally an 18th century Georgian manor house, located in six acres of private grounds and just three miles from the centre of the historic city of York. The hotel blends modern amenities with old-world style and it has retained many of its original features including its sweeping oak panelled staircase. Hotel facilities include reception, lounge, club bar and restaurant and all bedrooms are traditionally styled and have en-suite bathroom, hair dryer, TV, telephone, complimentary WiFi and tea/coffee maker. Renowned for its attentive service, comfortable accommodation and excellent cuisine guests are assured of having a very happy and memorable Christmas in York. Please note that due to the hotel being an historic building there is no lift however there are a number ground floor rooms available.
