Travel: York

Inside story Right in the shadow of York Minster, the inn oozes atmosphere. A warren of corridors leads to 13 rooms, filled with antique furniture.

Step out The cobbled shopping district of Stonegate is on your doorstep. A guided walk points out Fawkes’s haunts, or discover secret crypts and preserved Georgian interiors in Inaccessible and Hidden York (

Eat and drink Candlelit nooks and good local dishes mean the inn buzzes at night. If chocolate is your passion, conspire to visit from 6 to 9 April, when a brand-new festival begins.
