City of York Council

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

I've only had experience with going in and talking with the front line but all my experiences have been very positive and staff helpful. There is an easy enough to follow ticket system, get your ticket, wait, and you can see on the many monitors when it's your turn and how many people before you. Lots of places to sit too and computers to use.


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 :-)

Nunnery Lane Dental Practice

97A Nunnery Ln, York YO23 1AH, UK – 01904 639779

I'm so scared because I was unconscious during treatment in Japan when I was young. I'm Japanese. I told a doctor in the dentist about it and a doctor in Japan didn't give me "nerve sleeping injection" He released my worries about the pain and all staff are so friendly. I am so impressed by his skills. No pain!!!!! He is so excellent! All staff working at the dentist are so nice!!!!

Skin Doctor York

66 Blossom St, York YO24 1AP, UK – 01904 633833

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.

Everything a hospital should be and more, my wife was brilliantly treat on the acute stroke ward, amazing visitor facilities.

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 Elim Pentecostal Church (Sunday Morning Meeting)

Archbishop Holgate’s School, Hull Rd, York YO10 5ZA, UK – 01904 422322

I love York Elim. The church lunch on the first week of every month is a particular highlight! The youth work is fantastic. My boys have been enjoying the food related Sunday school this term. The variation is great. I recently got back from a men's weekend which I thoroughly enjoyed. Elim is a wonderful community who really practice what they preach and love each other.

We've been part of York Elim for 8 years and we love it. There are people of all ages and lots of backgrounds and nationalities. We really appreciate the music and the teaching. Now with a young baby we're glad we can use the creche in the middle of church and not miss out on any of the meeting!

Holy Trinity Church, Goodramgate

Goodramgate, York YO1 7LF, UK – 07964 061810

Fabulous old church with grave stones from the 14th century. Real little gem of a church

Hidden behind a few shops but an amazing old church with an uneven floor! £2 donation per person is recommended but it's not much and they want the money to keep it going

Really efficient friendly service. Tom was professional to deal with and worked quickly to help with my house clearance. Would highly recommend!

St Nicks - Nature Reserve & Environment Centre

57 Rawdon Ave, York YO10 3ST, UK – 01904 411821

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

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

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.

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

D'vine Restaurant and Scoial Bar

20-24 Swinegate, Dvine Restaurant And Social bar, York YO1 8AZ, UK – 01904 633700

Brilliant menu, price and service. I was really impressed with D'vine. The decor and atmosphere was great. Wide selection of food and the service was perfect . It opens up into more of a bar/club downstairs later and although we didn't stay i expect it would be a treat place for groups and parties.....no need to go anywhere else after your meal.

Went here on our first night out in York! Absolutely fantastic!! Free poured cocktails, made to perfection!! Beautiful atmosphere and great prices! The door woman was a great laugh too!! It's rare to see someone who doesn't take themselves too seriously!!! Bora Bora, around the corner is also worth a visit (same company, more Latino vibe)!

Ambiente Tapas Goodramgate

14 Goodramgate, York YO1 7LQ, UK – 01904 689784

My daughter and I ate here on 8 August and thoroughly enjoyed it. Loved the decor and warm welcome ; water was brought immediately without asking and we were also asked re allergies. The manager and all staff were very friendly and explained the menus. There was a large a la carte selection divided into meat, fish and vegetable with a slightly trimmed list for set menu lunch for a lower price. I love the tapas style with a range of smaller dishes that allows one to order something out of the ordinary without worrying about spoiling a meal if its not to your taste. I had two meat dishes including a delicious potato and chorizo dish in an amazing sauce, pork belly that was just perfect, crispy, moist and the revelation of aubergine fritters from the veggie side that were light but really satisfying. Everything was cooked really well and seven dishes between the two of us was plenty. A larger group could have a field day and order lots more from across the menu. I thought the bill was very reasonable for our experience, and I also like that service wasn't included on the final bill as so many places automatically add 12.5% nowadays. I highly recommend the restaurant. Thank you

Buzzy ambience, friendly staff, decent selection and mostly outstanding food. Strongly recommended if looking for reasonably priced high quality tapas in York centre.

Barbakan Restaurant & Cafe

58 Walmgate, York YO1 9TL, UK – 01904 672474

Amazing, charming looking restaurant close to York main attractions. Dining here feels like dining at a close friend's home. Lovely, welcoming staff and delicious, one-of-a-kind hearty meals. Generous portions, unique and authentic Polish dishes. Perfectly varied wine selection available. Home made desserts - recommend the scrumptious blueberry cheesecake.

We had brunch here today and the food was absolutely fantastic. I can particularly recommend the full english breakfast. I would have given it 5 stars if it weren't for the coffee. It was £2.20 for a small cup of black coffee that was barely half full and I wasn't given any milk.

Public & Preparatory Schools

Bootham School

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

As parents we find Bootham School brimming with many qualities, there is a calming atmosphere punctuated with a strong sense of purpose,- forming a perfect baseline to facilitate learning and self confidence. "Adventurous & Liberating" is the School mantra. 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 1600 hrs 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 !

As a former pupil, I cannot sing their praises high enough. I came from a school (St Olaves) where I was bullied for many years. I was generally miserable and had low self confidence. Bootham brought me out of that shell. The teachers were all lovely, I may not have liked every subject, but i still liked the teachers. The ethos and attitude of staff and pupils quickly formed me into a totally different more caring person. I was much happier, my grades rose and I joined as many after school activities as I could. At my previous school I never wanted to stay longer than I had to. At Bootham I never wanted to leave. School lunches were also amazing, In the 7 years since I left I have tried to keep my home food as varied and healthy as the lunches I got at school. Friends and family love the food I make and I still don't think it is as good as my school food was. I wasn't the only pupil to go to Bootham after being bullied, I think it attracts a lot of kids who are kind and bright but have been stifled through adverse experiences. I would highly recommend it for anyone who is more introverted and wants to develop in a caring and protective environment which still prepares you for the world ahead. My friends and employers have commented on how kind and hard working I am. These are qualities I am certain I formed during my time at Bootham. In the sixth form they give you more freedom and if staff think you are capable they stop spoon feeding information. Deferring to guiding your own research. This was a invaluable skill when it came to university.
