Business Travel in York
we need to make a business interaction, instead of automatically
thinking of a dull few days in Hell we should instantly
think how we should find some suitable surroundings.
And of all the surroundings in which to hold a business
conference, none can be finer than the City of York.
The walled, picture-postcard perfect city has always been
a favourite with conference organisers. It is the perfect
backdrop for making those all-important decisions. The
stress-free environment, that immediate sense of history,
will make every member of the business party feel as if
they are getting away from the cut-and-thrust of life
at the coal face.
One other highly important reason that York is perfect
for business purposes is its direct access to the country’s
railway network, ensuring that travelling here is simplicity
There is an entire smorgasbord of possible venues of
various sizes. For
instance, the Barbican Centre [map] (soon to undergo a revamp) has a 1,500 seat auditorium.
Other large-scale venues include the University of
York [map] and the National Railway museum [map].
For smaller scale but equally important conferences,
seminars and business meetings, the city boasts a staggering
amount of city centre
hotels and more unique venues, such as the Merchant
Adventurers’ Hall [map] and St Williams College [map].
As a long-standing destination for business users, a wide-range
of hotels suited to the business traveller exists among
those packed with tourists.
Favourites with the business community include Middlethorpe
Hall Hotel [map],
the Novotel [map] on Fewster Way and the central Royal York Hotel [map],
which is adjacent to the rail station.
