The Guy Fawkes Inn stands beside York Minster and was the birthplace of the notorious gunpowder plotter, Guido Fawkes. The inn offers stylish rooms furnished with antiques and Italian fabrics and with free WiFi and TVs; the bathrooms have luxury toiletries from Aromatherapy Associates. Many rooms have views of the city or the courtyard. Adding to the atmosphere of this medieval inn are the gas lights and the real log fires. 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. The world-famous Guy Fawkes Ghost Walk starts every night from just around the corner.
