The Bloomsbury is situated on the A19 to the north west side of the city, less than 1 mile from the Minster. Satellite Navigation systems often tend to send you through the City centre which should be avoided, so please follow the directions below.

From the North


From the A1 come down the A19 towards York. After crossing the A1237 (Outer ring road) The Bloomsbury can be found approximately 1 mile on the right hand side of the road after a set of traffic lights, opposite the church.





From the A1(M) take the A64 to York. Just before York, approximately 2 miles after MacDonald's/petrol stations and 1 mile after 'The Buckles Inn' on the left, take the A1237 (York North Bypass) (Missing this junction will take you through the City centre and could add significant time to your journey!)

At the roundabout (A1237/A19) just after the river turn right to York Centre. The Bloomsbury is situated one mile along the A19 on the right hand side of the road after a set of traffic lights, opposite the church.



There is limited parking immediately behind The Bloomsbury Guest House down the small lane at the side, or at the garages adjacent to The Bloomsbury. Parking is clearly marked. There is also free on-street parking across the road from The Bloomsbury on the cobbles.


If travelling by train the following map and directions from the train station should prove useful.



Approximately 10 minutes - Service runs every 15 minutes until 7pm.

Out of the front of the train station, turn left. Cross at the traffic lights. The bus stop is next to the war memorial on Station Avenue. Take the No.2 (Green Line) Park and Ride bus. Alight at Clifton Green.


Approximately 5 - 7 minutes

There is a taxi rank at the front of the train station. It should cost no more than around £6 and take around 5 - 7 minutes to The Bloomsbury dependant on traffic.


Approximately 20 minutes

Keep left before leaving the station. Walk through the station car park and exit down the ramps. Turn left and cross the bridge over the river, go back underneath the bridge towards upstream. 

Then either:

Turn right into Longfield Terrace, continue along Bootham Terrace until you reach the main road (Bootham/Clifton/A19). Turn left and continue. The Bloomsbury is on the left, opposite Clifton Parish Church just after Clifton Green.


Take the riverside walk to the next bridge. Turn right onto Water End. Cross the road at the traffic lights, turn right and continue along Water End to the main road (Clifton/A19). Turn left and The Bloomsbury is just on your left.
