The Townsleys welcome you to their beautiful victorian guesthouse


This family run bed & breakfast offers a range of king, double, twin and single occupancy en-suite rooms and is just a short walk from the historic York Minster and city centre.

Situated in a leafy area of York, The Bloomsbury Guest House is close to all of York's attractions such as The Jorvik Viking Centre, National Railway Museum, Castle Museum, Knavesmire Racecourse, The Shambles and many more. 

We take pride in our breakfasts and strive to source our ingredients as locally as possible, our thick cut bacon and succulent sausages are from Neary's Butchers on Clifton Green; a mere stone's throw from The Bloomsbury.

Tricia and Steve are keen to share the family home, and their love of York with guests. Not to mention introduce everyone to the adorable Yorkshire terrier Harvey.


All our bedrooms and en-suites are tastefully decorated with high quality furnishings. Each room has it's own en-suite shower or bathroom, flat screen television, hairdryer, free high-speed Wi-Fi and tea & coffee making facilities. High ceilings add to the light and airy feel of bedrooms at The Bloomsbury and remind us of the elegance of days gone by.


Recommended by The GuardianThe Daily TelegraphThe Good Hotel Guide, Frommers’, and other reputable travel guides provide some assurances to what we have to offer. 

We are also very proud to be awarded the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for the 8th year running in recognition of consistently superior service.
