The Great Little Spring Log....York
Posted on March 11, 2014 by Admin
On Thursday 20th March it will officially be spring. And only 10 days later the clocks will go back, giving us more hours of daylight. And- to top it all off- the weather is finally taking a turn for the better. There's a lot to be thankful for this March.
There's no better time to take a break (especially a Great Little Break), so we're giving our readers a little something extra. Are you ever on a short break and wondering what to do in the local area?
Hotel Tulip Inn, Huby, York:
Located just 20 minutes outside York in the beautiful North Yorkshire Countryside, this Victorian Mansion House is set amidst a stunning 8 acres of parkland. Fine food, comfortable accommodation and a very warm welcome make this hotel unforgettable.
Whether it is a leisure break to escape the pressures of modern living, a celebration with family or friends, a wedding day of your dreams or maybe a business event that needs a professional touch, this is the perfect venue. The hotel has free wifi, ample parking, a widely recognized restaurant and bar, fully equipped rooms, and a full fitness centre.
Huby is a village in the Hambleton district of North Yorkshire, England, about eight miles north of York and four miles south-east of Easingwold. The village is perfectly located for those wanting to visit some of Yorkshire's greatest attractions, as well as within easy access of the city of York. The Yorkshire Dales are a short drive to the west, North York Moors closer still to the north, and the magnificent city of York just 11 miles south.
A great attraction for all the family is the National Rail Museum in York. Standing as the largest railway museum in the world, it has almost 1 million visitors per year. From the late nineteenth century, railway companies began preserving their past but it wasn't until 1948, when nationalization of the railways took place that these collections were all brought together. There's plenty to discover for both adults and kids alike.
An attraction guaranteed to attract all ages is York's Chocolate Story. York's Chocolate Story is an entertaining and informative guided tour through the history of York's most famous chocolate-making families and their finest creations. You can explore some of the many exciting chocolate-related activities on a visit to York, the UK's home of chocolate. Once you've explored chocolate making and its history, you can even shop for and indulge in chocolate to your heart's content. There's so much for you to enjoy and discover.
An attraction the kids are sure to enjoy is the York Dungeons. This is a 70 minute journey into 2000 years of horrible history. The Dungeon brings together an amazing cast of theatrical actors, special effects, stages and scenes in a truly unique and exciting walkthrough experience that you see, hear, touch, smell and feel.
Spring is on its way! All of these attractions will be open for spring and all the details are available on their websites.
