York’s Top 5 Autumn Activities

With its incredible architecture and cosy pubs, York makes a magnificent visit all year round. Each season brings change, which our city takes in its stride to become increasingly beautiful and unique. Read on to find out York’s top five autumn activities.


Shop at Shambles Market

Autumn is the time to indulge in oven-cooked comfort food, and the Shambles Market is the perfect place to pick up ingredients. With over seventy stalls, fresh seasonal produce from independent traders is plentiful. For an elegant dining room centre-piece to compliment your meal and brighten up your table in the colder months, visit the florist for a beautiful bunch of flowers.Shambles Market


Visit Clifford’s Tower

As the days draw to a close, venture to the top of Clifford’s Tower and watch the early sunset over the stunning York landscape. Absorb panoramic views of the city with the opportunity to see the ornate orange-leafed trees from a new angle. You’ll feel as proud as the Tower itself as you stand upon all that remains of the grand York Castle.Clifford's Tower


Warm up in a coffee shop

Gloves and scarves can keep you toasty in the outdoors, but a hot drink warms you to the core and feeds the soul. York is home to the famous Betty’s Tea Room, but the branch does not go without competition. An independent café stands on every street corner of York, with baristas ready and waiting to greet you with a hot mug of coffee and a slice of cake.Coffee


Buy a new autumn wardrobe at the unique shops

Fall in love with the most current fashion trends this season. Our independent boutique shops will help you layer up with daring denim, chunky knits and black leather boots. And, if you’re craving a bargain, visit McArthur Glen Designer Outlet, where you can gain a generous discount on designer brands. York Designer Outlet[Photo credit: YORK DESIGNER OUTLET]


Do a pub crawl

Take a break from the outdoor elements with a stop in York’s many cosy pubs. As you walk to select your destination, you will notice that the city’s pubs pride themselves on their breathtaking historical architecture. The interiors are as magnificent as their exterior, where you can put your feet up and enjoy crackling fires, delicious pub grub and real ale. Begin your venture early on, and you'll be all crawled out by 10pm!Beers

Hotel Indigo York Reviews



A lovely hotel within walking distance to the centre of York. Very friendly, helpful staff on reception, bar area and dining room. The rooms were immaculately clean and well presented. The bed was absolutely huge and was extremely comfortable. The hotel has a modern, funky feel to it and was very welcoming. The breakfast was superb . Would definitely stay here again.



<p>Conveniently positioned within easy walking distance of the city and Minster. This was our third visit so obviously we’re fans. That said although the previous visits were excellent this time the stay was even better. On check in we were given a complimentary upgrade to a superior room as IHG elite members. The room was spacious, clean and well furnished. Large TV. Massive comfortable bed with high quality bedding. Complimentary snacks with fresh milk and the bonus of a Nespresso coffee machine complete with six “pods”. Decent sized bathroom which was clean and well stocked with quality toiletries. Breakfast on both mornings was excellent. Wide choice of hot and cold items. Plenty of quality juices and smoothies. Service excellent even when busy nothing seems rushed. Very highly recommended.</p>



Excellent hotel. Rooms very nice and extremely clean and quiet. Friendly staff both at reception and restaurant. Breakfast had fantastic choice. Location was really good lots of nice bars and restaurants just minutes away. Short walk to the Shambles and they offered parking just 2 minutes away for a small daily charge. Would definitely stay again. 5 Stars.


Perth, Australia

We have found that it’s the little things that make a huge difference when you’re travelling. They’ve nailed the little things here! You’re always warmly greeted when you pass reception. Comfortable bed, soft towels, immaculate room and free chocolate in the fridge! Breakfast is delicious and finally a coffee I enjoyed. Location is fabulous and parking was easy. Well done to the Team at Hotel Indigo.



We stayed at the Indigo for my birthday recently. It was very modern with quirky room features. The breakfast was world class - such a great variety of treats, including a good selection of gluten and dairy free food. The staff were very helpful and attentive.


Milton Keynes

Stayed for 2 nights, very good quality modern hotel with good sized rooms and breakfast. Cold buffet and hot food freshly cooked to order . Great location within a 5/10 minute walk of York center. Would highly recommend.



<p>My partner, daughter and I stayed for 3 nights on a city break in April 2018. The room was great, Fresh milk in the complimentary mini fridge, fantastic big bed, really really clean, excellent room service and thick black out curtains. The service was excellent from all the staff at all times - reception staff were helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was also fantastic, so much choice on offer and again, nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is really well located for the city. It was excellent value for money and we would definitely stay there again. Absolutely 10/10 all round.</p>

This is a nice hotel in a quiet area of York, but still within easy walking distance of the city centre / shambles walls etc. Lovely continental breakfast and a quiet bar area. Ideal if you want a bit of peace in a busy city.



Stayed one night in this hotel ,was very impressed. A warm welcome on arrival from the receptionist and the room was ready ahead of check in time. The room was lovely, very luxurious with lots of nice touche. Biscuits, chocolate and drinks in fridge. Very close to main town and York Minster. Had a lovely evening meal in the hotel restaurant, very reasonable priced and a nice breakfast in the morning before leaving. Would definitely stay here again.



Lovely hotel close to York centre and near all the main sites. Within 5 minutes walk to the Shambles. Excellent staff and facilities. On arrival complimentary mini treats in room due to it being my Birthday. Complimentary water and chocolate and biscuits in room together with tea making facilities. Made the 2 night stay in York most enjoyable. Would definitely stay there again and recommend.


Greater Manchester

We had a very pleasant stay on a Saturday night when visiting York. The hotel is only a few minutes walk from the Shambles and central York area. The staff were all good and friendly with good check in service and also in the bar. The breakfast choice and service was also very good. The room and the hotel was decorated very well. We stay here again if staying in York.
