The Judge’s Lodging


In a fantastic location, within the shadow of York Minster, the Judges Lodgings is the only Grade 1 listed Georgian Town House hotel within the centre of York, and features stylish rooms, popular cellar bar, hearty food and two sun terraces.

Following a £2.2 million development in 2014, The Judge’s Lodging is full of the many quirky features you’d expect a building of its age to have, but also contains some very 21st century touches. The blend of old and new ensures there is plenty of character to enjoy.

Our 21 guest rooms are each special and unique, some have four-poster beds, some have spa baths and all have en-suite bathrooms. Many afford fabulous views of York Minster! Each room is filled with the small details which make it feel like a home away from home; complimentary WiFi, tea and coffee making facilities with fresh milk, comfortable beds and plump pillows, complimentary toiletries and our unique good night sleep packs.

Our restaurant and bar offer a place to unwind while enjoying quality food, an enviable range of cask ales, and the best cocktails, wines and fizz! Choose to relax in our cosy cellar bar, feature glass box, the cask ale bar or one of our spacious sun terraces.

Road Directions

By Car
If you've travelled by car, you're welcome to drop off luggage and guests at the door, but then you'll need to park in one the nearby public car parks.
Marygate Car Park Frederic Street - open-air car park - evening parking is £2 from 6pm to 8am - it's a lovely stroll back through the Museum Gardens, but the gates do close at 6pm, so after this time take the route by the riverside
Tanner Row NCP car park George Hudson Street - covered and secured parking - 12 to 24 hours £17.00
If you'd like a map to keep you on track, just ask at the desk in reception.

By Rail
York is on the east coast mainline with fast and frequent services to and from London and other major cities. There are taxis outside the station, or if you're travelling light, it's about a 10 minute walk.

We offer a parking permit which allows you to park a full day up until 10am in the local Marygate car park. It is a short 4 minute walk through the Museum gardens to Judges Lodgings. The permit is for one day/night only and it is charges at £10.00 per permit, if you are staying more than one night a permit for each day is required. Alternative parking is available at NCP Tanner Row (multi-storey) and tickets can be purchased at the car park ranging from £17 for 24 hours.
