3 top autumn events in York

Summer is over, but don’t be glum, York is an incredible city to visit all year round! Autumn is a great time to visit the historic city, with some fab festivals taking place across all over York. In this blog, our boutique hotel in York explores the top reasons why you should visit the historic city this autumn…

Oktoberfest York

You don’t have to go all the way to Germany to experience Oktoberfest, you can celebrate right here in York! The grounds of York Sports Club will be transformed for one weekend only into a traditional Bavarian bash! Scoff Bratwurst, pretzels and wash it down with a MASSIVE stein of beer, whilst you celebrate with friends. Who doesn’t love dressing up, we know it’s not essential, but it adds to the experience right?! Our York hotel can’t wait for Oktoberfest 2019!

Autumn Harvest & Flower Festival

Autumn is truly a beautiful season, as the leaves fall off the trees, and turn golden brown and autumnal plants and flowers come to life. We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the gorgeous time of the year than at Castle Howard’s Autumn Harvest & Flower Festival. Inside the house lies a stunning flower festival (perfect for those Instagram shots), as well as plenty of outdoor activities. It’s the ideal day out for the whole family!Castle Howard

Foodie? Then York Food & Drink Festival is the event for you! With some of the very best local food and drink traders, you can eat delicious street food and sip on funky cocktails to your heart’s content. In addition to the tasty stalls, there will be cookery demonstrations from some of the best chefs in York, Yorkshire and beyond! The best part?
