Dental Surgeries

Blossom Dental Care & Implant Studio

25 Blossom St, York YO24 1AQ, UK – 01904 654889

I have been a patient of this practice for a long time but only recently needed emergency care after suffering from tremendous toothache over last weekend. I called the practice first thing last Monday and the receptionist I spoke to was really understanding and booked me an appointment straight away with the dentist that morning at 11am. I felt really looked after with the dentist taking the time to go through all options with me and after deciding that I wanted the tooth taken out-the treatment was completed all on the same day. so relieved-and my life could return to normal. I would definitely recommend this practice!

I have just finished my invisalign treatment at Blossom Dental Care and I just wanted to say a big thank you to all the staff, especially Mr Harrison for my fantastic new smile. I had been really conscious of my smile for a long time but with me getting married I thought that this was the time to get it sorted. From the initial consultation I felt so well looked after and everyone made me feel at ease and had the time to answer any questions I had about the treatment. With my wedding coming up in a couple of months I can now look forward to the photos to show off my new smile. Thank you once again!

Andrea Ubhi Dentistry

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

I would just like to say how amazed I have been by the quality of dentistry that I have received. I am a little nervous of the dentist, and I wanted to improve the look of my teeth. I cam for a free consultation, which I was really happy with. Dr Adam Glassford explained all the options available to me, including the pros and cons of each option in a no-nonsense way that I appreciated. After treatment, my teeth look absolutely great, amazing actually and they look 100% natural - which was the whole aim. Thank you Adam, Michelle and Carmel, and all the team. I would definitely recommend.

I had numerous fillings with Dr Gibson, and whitening. The results are even better than I thought ..,.my teeth are so white and all amalgam fillings I had replace for white ones, you now cannot even notice them. All the desk team are so nice, the nurses are really great and patient if you are nervous like me and Dr Gibson is brilliant at what he does. thank you everyone

Bupa Dental Care York - Lawrence Street

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

Not sure what’s happened since it was taken over by Bupa but clearly the receptionists aren’t happy about it. All I heard as I waited for my appointment were audible complaints, whinges and moans about working conditions. No polite greeting as I entered and no smiles from any of the receptionists I engaged with. Oh. And they NEVER answer the phone! The dentists are fabulous but their frontline staff could be more professional.

I was directed to BUPA Dental clinic through NHS 111, I wasn’ t disappointed the receptionists and Dentist couldn’t put me at easy quick enough as I’m one of those people who’d rather not go to the dentist! I was made to feel welcome and was seen in a very short period of time with excellent results.

East Parade Medical Practice

89 E Parade, York YO31 7YD, UK – 01904 423666

Skin Doctor York

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

I visited the York clinic after seeing their before and after photos on their Instagram and thinking how amazing their work was. Today I had the Tear Trough Filler procedure and it’s truely exceeded my expectations. In the consultation beforehand everything was explained to me and it was very clear to see they are very experienced in their work and knew exactly how to achieve what I was after. During the treatment I was reassured the whole time and very well looked after. I am so happy with my results, I’m definitely going back again in the future and recommending them to anyone who is thinking of getting anything done. They really know how to enhance your beauty in the most natural way! Thank you so much Skin Doctor Clinics ! See you again soon!

Very professional.With great results.I've had the same treatments elsewhere ,but they have been no comparison to here.

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

I cannot rate this hospital highly enough. The cardiologists I've seen have been absolutely amazing. Dr Gupta is one of the nicest, kindest, best doctors I have ever met and he spends so much time really helping you and understanding what the problem is. He is a remarkable person. Dr Hayes also recently arranged a stress test for me and was very kind and accommodating with me, arranging for me to have the test then come straight over to Nuffield with the results so we could go over them before he went on leave as he knew I was suffering from severe anxiety. I very much appreciated his help and both doctors have been fab at arranging test for me when needed. I recently requested copies of my medical records from Nuffield and the lady that dealt with it was incredibly efficient and helpful but I can't remember her name :( Whenever I come to clinic, the lady upstairs on reception always greets me with a friendly smile which is appreciated as I'm sometimes very stressed when I come in. All the nurses are friendly and approachable. It is a lovely atmosphere in the hospital so it doesn't really feel like a hospital. Follow up letters to my gp has always been quick and I don't believe I've ever had to wait even a week for an appintment. I would strongly recommend to have cardiology services here, they have helped me immensely over the last few years.

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.

York Hospital

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

This hospital is an excellent hospital with great staff, they are always keen to help and show genuine care and compassion. Of course you will always encounter the odd person who could do better but overwhelmingly as a whole unit the hospital and all who work there are excellent. As with all hospitals parking is expensive but at least in this case it’s plentiful. If you’re visiting a child on paediatrics then they’ll validate your ticket so you can park free.

hospital is spotlessly clean. My first time at York hospital for a minor operation. Big shout out to staff nurse Marsh on ward 27 who was just lovely and attentive also to Dean and Francine(think that's her name) on PACU who had to put up with me for a few hours longer than expected due to a mix up with beds but again we're lovely. very positive experience.

Holy Trinity Church, Goodramgate

Goodramgate, York YO1 7LF, UK – 01904 613451

The York Viking Market was located here this year, and likely will be next year. A very sweet building, with its painted glass windows, the enclosed pews and aura of times past. Loved it!

Definitely worth taking the time and trouble to seek this out. This is a beautiful old church, totally hidden from view. You would never chance upon it accidentally unless you're exploring the snickleways.

St Wilfrid's Catholic Church

5 Duncombe Pl, York YO1 7ED, UK – 01904 624767

A wonderfull place for quite reflection and contemplation. A beautiful old Catholic Church. Remember it is a house of god and devotion so please respect its purpose.

Extremely moving to walk into the narthex of this church in the shadow of the Minster and read the list of names of English martyrs. Nearby is the shrine of St. Margaret Clitherow. "In all thy works remember thy last end, and thou shalt never sin." Sirach 7:40

Can't get enough of this place, a green oasis teeming with life, a massive asset to a great city and a fantastic bunch of people working there. I've seen loads of finches, beetles, and a few water voles, but the kingfisher still eludes me!

Nice place, great work in the community

Hazel Court Household Waste Recycling Centre

1 Hazel Ct, York YO10 3DS, UK – 01904 551550

Many skips for different types of waste. They also have dedicated areas for paper, clothing, chemicals, small electrical items and tv's and monitors. It's a very popular site so you sometimes have to queue to get in but the queue clears at a steady pace so you don't have to wait too long. There are several council workers on site to advise and /or assist you as necessary.

Always welcomed by friendly and cheerful staff when attending to recycle some items, happy to help and great work ethic! Everything is clearly laid out and perfect spaces to pull in your car ensuring you don't block the flow of traffic. Well done CYC this place is a merit to you!

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

Delrio's restaurant

City Centre, 10-12 Blossom St, York YO24 1AE, UK – 01904 622695

Proper Italian food and good wine served in this cosy basement restaurant. Friendly and welcoming. But book first! Good places are popular.

The location, the meal and the service were first class. The meals arrived quickly, piping hot and full of flavour. The staff were very informed about all items on the menu. I couldn't fault anything.

Melton's Restaurant

7 Scarcroft Rd, York YO23 1ND, UK – 01904 634341

5/5 still isn't high enough. Incredible food and service for a very reasonable price. Easily the best meal I've ever had. You know a main course is good when you're genuinely sad it's over. Extensive wine list is superbly priced also. If I had to recommend one place in England to visit it would be here.

Love this place. Occasionally a dish could use one more flavour element (imo) but the quality of the ingredients and the skill of the chef are evident in every bite of every dish. The staff are friendly and have great expertise re wine pairings, etc. Cosy and intimate vibe.

Loch Fyne Seafood & Grill Restaurant

Foss Bridge House, Walmgate, York YO1 9TJ, UK – 01904 650910

Excellent service,the waiting staff had a great deal of knowledge on the menu. The food is delicious with a wide section to choose from., also new foods I have never come across... Like heritage potatos which are potatoes of different colours.. But taste the same... I would definitely recommend this restaurant and is ideal for dates, groups of friends. I wish I could give this more than 5 stars as this restaurant is worth more. Very happy

The food was good but the portion sizes were variable. We had the mussels (good portion size), salmon (again good portion size), hake (reasonable portion size) and smoked haddock (small portion size). We weren't rushed through our dinner, in fact they could have been a little quicker with the courses. Overall a good experience one which I will be willing to undergo again.

Clifton Day Nursery

5 Sutton Way, York YO30 6JF, UK – 01904 674000

My daughter has attended Clifton Day Nursery since she was 9 months old and she has thrived in the small caring nursery. We often comment that it is like her second home and she is so happy and content there. There is a real sense of love and care and the team strive to help the children play and learn. The large secure garden is brilliant and messy, natural play is positively encouraged. The early years foundation is covered effectively but this is balanced well with time to play and be a child. If you want a small and relaxed environment for your child to grow into a happy and confident person then this is the place.

Such a lovely nursery, both our children have gone here and flourished. Even after moving to the other side of York, we still continue to use this nursery. A more loving, caring and personal nursery you will not find. Clifton Day Nursery really deserves to be recognised for the work they do. They are Fantastic!!

Public & Preparatory Schools

York Steiner School

25 Fulford Cross, York YO10 4PB, UK – 01904 654983

Not just a school, but a community. From birth (Gentle Beginnings), through the toddler years (Parent & Child Groups), pre-school (Kindergarten) to the Main School (age 6 - 14) York Steiner School offers a nurturing environment and a rounded education. Highly recommended.

Best school ever.

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.

St Peter's School

Clifton, York YO30 6AB, UK – 01904 527300

Fantastic school, with a long standing reputation for excellence. If your considering a private school with a great reputation, this is definitely worth a serious look.
