York Minster — one of the world's largest and finest masterpieces of Gothic architecture — is your immediate neighbour here, and you can feast your eyes on it through the panoramic windows outside your apartment door or from the spacious and peaceful private garden below. Step out through the complex's fine gateway into Low Petergate and you are in the bustling heart of the city — once the capital of the entire Roman empire, and now a breathtaking mix of ancient and modern, and everything in between. Within a hundred yards or so you can lift your spirits with heavenly music in the cathedral, quell your hunger with heavenly cakes at famous Betty's Café, or scare your socks off on a guided ghost walk. River boats are close by, as are the fabled authentic odours of the Jorvik Viking Centre. There are excellent restaurants within a few yards of the entrance gate, and many, many more within easy reach, together with pubs and clubs to suit every taste, and an exceptional range of fine shops.
