“Here’s a novel way to save money on a night’s accommodation in York: stay at the Bar Convent, England's oldest living convent, established in 1686. Behind an elegant Georgian façade you'll find a beautiful chapel, a museum and self catering and ensuite accommodation, plus a café, kitchen, laundry facilities, sitting rooms with TV and wifi internet access.”
Written by Hugh Graham-Watson
"There’s an all-day café, an oasis of a garden, the chapel to visit whenever you like, a shop and superbly-designed exhibition, detailing the history of the convent and the life of its remarkable founder Mary Ward."
