Pre-Arrival

The nearest train station is York, which is situated 0.8 miles from the house or an approximate 16-minute walk. Taxis are available from the taxi rank in the station entrance, which, is frequently populated with waiting taxis. For visitors arriving by scheduled coach services, these generally stop close to York Train station in Lehman Road and are the same distance from the Townhouse as the station. For visitors wishing to take transport to the house from the station, we highly recommend the taxi service rather than trying to get the house by bus.

The street of Ogleforth where the house is located is a tarmac road with a flagstone pavement. The pavements are old and sometimes uneven. The Goodramgate end of Ogleforth contains many shops and provides the nearest access to the commercial centre. Ogleforth is generally a very quiet single one-way lane, and most pedestrians walk on the tarmac road. No street parking is permitted although it generally is accepted that short taxi or similar drop offs and pick ups are of little disturbance given the minimal vehicle use of the road. Public lighting from the car park into Goodramgate is good. Ogleforth has street lighting in traditional lantern style.

At the opposite end, Ogleforth becomes Chapter House Street, named after the Chapter House of the Minster at the street end. This street is very cobbled and flanked on one side by a narrow flagstone pavement. Chapter House Street contains the entrance to the beautiful garden of Grays Court which, offers teas and lunches, and the Treasurers House which is a National Trust property.
