You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

1 Market St, York YO1 8SR, UK – 0345 788 8444

Promoting self service banking. Good service.

Can be busy sometimes but the staff are very helpful and friendly

NatWest Bank

York University, Main St, Heslington, York YO10 5ZB, UK – 0845 788 8444

Very polite, no queue - i'll come again!


13 Parliament Street, North Yorkshire, York YO1 8RS, UK – 0345 740 4404

I've had nothing but excellent service every single time at this bank, and even with HSBC's telephone banking. However, I'm always respectful towards the staff. I imagine that people leaving negative reviews must have been extremely rude to provoke anything other than top class customer service.

Building Societies

Yorkshire Building Society

7 - 7A Feasegate, York YO1 8SH, UK – 01904 569018

Friendly helpful staff


17-18 Parliament St, York YO1 8SG, UK – 0800 554 0791

Quick service, friendly and help staff. Often busy on a weekend

I like the bank for a couple of real simple reasons. They don't bother me with lots of questions when I'm making a deposit and it's smack in the heart of York city centre.

Skipton Building Society - York

35 Parliament St, York YO1 8RU, UK – 01904 635034

Local Chambers of Commerce for YO10 5DY. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!
City of York Council

West Offices, Station Rise, York YO1 6GA, UK – 01904 551550

It's the council, can't expect miracles or anything to be done quick. Chase it up daily though and it'll get done sooner. The ticket queuing system works and free WiFi whilst you wait.

Some of the management are truly shifty when asked questions. Most of the front-line staff are friendly enough and competent, though sometimes things need to be explained as if speaking to a 6-year-old. Records of conversations are not kept on file, which means there is no compromising paper trail. In short: a typical socialist council, where accountability is not a word in their dictionary.


St. Helen’s Square, York YO1 9QN, UK – 01904 613161

Went here for the York Christmas Market and there were good vendors with plenty of good product. A hidden gem in town.

My favourite location in all of York. The coat of arms amongst the flagstones is particularly impressive. A tour of the chambers with it's secret passageways is a must. Watch out for the rats as you head down the ramp into the Ouse River.

Dental Surgeries

Andrea Ubhi Dentistry

22 Goodramgate, York YO1 7LG, UK – 01904 639667

Just been today for the second stage of my implant. The skill and technical ability of Dr Adam Glassford and his team of nurses are unbelievable. The whole set up from the receptionists right through to the Dental Surgeons and Andrea Ubhi herself, give a very relaxed and family atmosphere to this dental practice. The standard is set high and that is definitely what you get. First class. I would advise anyone to consider Andrea Ubhi Dentistry for their dental work. The reason five stars. Just excellent!

Great friendly staff, really good care. Can tell all the staff are really passionate about their work and my partner has been absolutely delighted with her veneers by Dr Glassford. Great coffee :-)

Crystal Clear Dental York & Haxby

25 Blake St, York YO1 8QJ, UK – 01904 642595

Having attended this practice for a few years I felt compelled to write a review to highlight the first class service. The practice environment is impressive, clean, welcoming and comfortable. The staff and dentists at the practice are professional and I feel well treated and listened to. Myself and my family wouldn't go anywhere else and I would highly recommend this practice

All staff were Very Friendly and welcoming. Felt at ease.

Oasis Dental Care York - Lawrence Street

107 Lawrence St, City Centre, York YO10 3EF, UK – 01904 411993

Myself and hubby have had excellent dental treatments from Liz Gibson for the past 20 years. Genuinely sad to hear she's left the practice. Liz always made our bi-annual check ups light-hearted with her humour.. Please send her our future good wishes. That said, an infected wisdom tooth requiring a short notice appointment was dealt with very well by Mr Browne. The practice is professional, friendly and has a good duty of care.

Great Dentist I can't thank Mrs Cameron for her care and attention to my teeth. Thouroughly recommend her very caring & Professional she listens to your needs.

York Medical Group

35 Monkgate, York YO31 7PB, UK – 01904 206862

Solid GP Service. Very well working online options, auto repeats through electronic prescribing means my local pharmacy has my pills in on time every time. Also have remote sorted weird problems very well in past.

Priory Medical Group

45 Heworth Green, York YO31 7SX, UK – 01904 425241

It can be difficult to get through on the phone, but I have always found this surgery to be responsive to my needs and the doctors to be excellent.

People are nice in this place. Service is good but let's say, even if it is not, a smile can do much better.

Jorvik Gillygate Practice

Woolpack House, The Stonebow, York YO1 7NP, UK – 01904 724343

not very friendly staff. GPs are excellent and very attentive to details. Waiting time almost doesn't exist. Clean and good facilities.

I have to say that I like how they treat you here, the nurses and doctors are always happy and helpful and when you don't understand what they are saying they try and explain it in a different way. Compared to other, this is a 5 star.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

Nuffield Health York Hospital

Haxby Rd, York YO31 8TA, UK – 01904 715000

The aftercare I received following my knee operation was absolutely appalling, I was informed to "check on the internet" because the surgeon neglected to inform me of the what he had actually done to my knee and whether I was to use crutches or not. I left the hospital with no stick or crutches, holding onto my friend's arm and the wall, in tears and pain, in order to leave the hospital. Except for the receptionist no-one came to my assistance! Having said that, once I was actually seen by a physio therapist, the care, imparting of knowledge and management of my progress has been outstanding.

Celebrating international nurses day !

York Hospital

Wigginton Rd, York YO31 8HE, UK – 01904 631313

This is for the Doctors in A & E and Ambulance service. I would like to thank all concerned. On the weekend of the 28th January 2017 my husband was very ill, the Doctors who I spoke to were very helpful and supportive which enabled my husband to die at home by my side, as this is what he always wanted. The ambulance staff attended to my husband with such professionalism, which enabled him to die with dignity. A big thank you to all of you.

St Wilfrid's Catholic Church

My local school church. Great architecture. Lovely place to relax and think about those we love and loved!

I attended a funeral in Saint Wifrid's, which in itself was moving and personal. A contemporary Roman Catholic service. However, I'm giving it five stars for how well organised the church and how personal and friendly the Father was. Thank you.

Thanks so much! Super friendly and helpful.

York Community Furniture Store Ltd

Unit 29/34A, The Raylor Centre, James St, York YO10 3DW, UK – 01904 426444

Purchased six chairs and matching dining table in perfect condition. Excellent value, and good quality. You cannot possibly go wrong.

Having walked round the store i find they have really good modern and older style furniture. The prices are for either a person on benefits or not but both are very reasonable. Baby and nursery items are upstairs along with tvs and white goods and some smaller items of furniture,bedside drawers etc mattresses and beds.If your looking for something you can't find in the shops try the Community store you will probably find it there and so.much cheaper.

St Nicks - Nature Reserve & Environment Centre

York Environment Centre, Rawdon Ave, York YO10 3ST, UK – 01904 411821

Great place, with lovely staff. They do our recycling and they do a great job.

I visit this lovely little nature reserve at least once a week. I'm amazed at the richness of the wildlife here - and it's just a mile from the centre of York. Take your time walking through the reserve - and keep your eyes open. You never know what you might see! I've seen both Kingfishers and Water Voles on Tang Hall Beck, where it flows through the reserve

Give and get free stuff. Here you will find lots of items that people are willing to give away, for FREE! This is instead of taking them to a local landfill site. The aim of this site is to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill (20.9 million tonnes of it last year in the UK) and recycling is great news for the environment.
We all know that we need to recycle more - and this is a great way of doing it.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Heslington

Cafe Rouge

The Adams House, 52 Lower Petergate, Low Petergate, York YO1 7HZ, UK – 01904 673293

Cramped ill thought out seating and loos could do with some loving attention. Food was standard for a cafe rouge. Unfortunately, we had a new waitress who could have done with support from colleagues - couldn't understand our drinks order. cleared plates, brought dessert menus and tried to get a dessert order while one of us was still finishing main course. Talked over one of us while ordering coffees so misheard and brought wrong drinks. No apologies ever.

Pleasant surroundings. Good foot and service.


77-81 Goodramgate, City Centre, York YO1 7LS, UK – 01904 610888

So far never been disappointed coming here. Delicious food and really on-the-ball staff!

Great solo lunch waiting for a client meeting. Love the fresh flavours, quick fire cooking and ambience. Consistency at it's very best

YO! Sushi York

15-17 Church St, York YO1 8BE, UK – 01904 566663

I would actually turn gay for one of the servers. Amazing service, handsome staff and great food if you like this sorta thing. Even if you don't... It's good to go there just for the atmosphere alone and a few of those cool looking desserts ;)

Well I 💖 Yo Sushi - been to several including Birmingham and Newcastle (both when it was in Fenwick's and its new location) and the food and service here in the York branch, as well as staff and the chef with his brigade, were the usual exemplary standard..; so why the 3 stars? The venue is blah! I've seen brighter, smarter, fresher "greasy spoon" cafes! Ripped seats, tired paintwork, "rundown" look?! Really? This is not down to staff but management - come on guys👥 its Yo Sushi! It's York! It's a tourist Mecca! Get your act together🙄

Public & Preparatory Schools

Bootham School

49-57 Bootham, York YO30 7BU, UK – 01904 623261

Both of our boys are at the Junior School and this is the final year for the oldest. The school has been excellent, with a strongly experiential approach to learning. The focus is holistic rather than narrowly academic, recognising that building confidence, courage, resilience and curiosity are at least as important as any academic focus. There are also many opportunities to participate in and be encouraged in sport, music and other non academic activities. Over the three years our eldest has been there he has achieved grade five and grade four in two instruments through excellent teaching. Highly recommended as an all around school.

We find this School brimming with many qualities, there is a calming atmosphere punctuated with a strong sense of purpose "Adventurous & Liberating". Our two children have made some wonderful friends and from starting Bootham in year seven, have never looked back. The teaching staff are supportive and motivating. The activities after 16.00hrs add another dimension to the learning and development of children, giving them a taste of things they (and we) would probably never think of in the fast paced world in which we live. Finally, the food is consistently of the highest quality and the children (& us on Saturdays),look forward to every meal !

The Minster School

Minster Yard, York YO1 7JB, UK – 0844 939 0000
