With a plethora of medieval and Gothic landmarks, independent boutiques on cobbled streets and a growing reputation as a "culinary hotspot", according to MSN, it's easy to see why York was voted best small city in Britain by Rough Guides readers in 2011. We've found a 2-night break for £85 per person, including a 3-course à la carte dinner on the first night. That's a saving of up to 37%.
The offer includes accommodation at the AA-rated Best Western Monkbar Hotel in the city centre, full-English breakfast daily (worth £12.50 per person) and afternoon cream tea on arrival (worth £5.95 per person).
Valid for stays seven days a week from 1 December to 28 February, 2013.
Located opposite the 13th-century city walls, the Best Western Monkbar hotel is well located for exploring what Lonely Planet calls the "medieval spiderweb of narrow streets". York Minster, the largest Gothic cathedral in northern Europe and the Jorvik Viking Museum are both a 5-minute walk away.
Dinner is served in the hotel's Cloisters Restaurant where guests can choose from dishes such as carpaccio of tuna, slow-cooked pork belly and lavender crème caramel. Modern bedrooms have views over the city walls or the hotel's courtyard garden. Free parking is available at the hotel.
Not available on 14-15, 24-25, 31 December; 15-16 February, 2013.
