The Guy Fawkes Inn stands next to York Minster and was the birthplace of the notorious Gunpowder Plotter. The inn offers rooms with free WiFi and flat-screen TVs, furnished with antiques and Italian fabrics. Many rooms have views of the city or the courtyard, and bathrooms have luxury toiletries from Aromatherapy Associates. Old or original features include the timber staircase, gas lighting and real log fires. The world-famous Guy Fawkes Ghost Walk leaves every night just around the corner. Dine by candlelight in the restaurant, which serves traditional food from locally-sourced ingredients. The bar stocks a wide range of real ales and a selection of fruit wines.
