Living Theology York 2019 - Accommodation
“Children of Abraham” - Interfaith Topics
[Living Theology York, 2019, with The Newman Association]
N.B. Accommodation for the conference/Study weekend must be booked separately from the conference booking itself.
There is a wealth of accommodation available in York, to suit a wide spectrum of purses. However, because York is a tourist mecca, hotels etc tend to book up early:
you are advised to book your accommodation as soon as you can.
At the Bar Convent Guest House there are 20 recently refurbished guest bedrooms situated over three floors (there is a lift). Most have en-suite facilities and the rates are per room with breakfast included. The 2018 rates varied from singles at £40 (Sun – Thurs, no e-suite) to doubles at £114 (Fri – Sat, ‘superior’ with en-suite). Until the April 30th 2019 all the rooms over the weekend 12/13/14 July are being held available for booking by LTY/Newman participants: phone 01904-643238, and mention ‘Living Theology’ or ‘The Newman’.
Early booking is essential.
In addition to much other accommodation in York there are two Premier Inns just over the road from the Bar Convent. They are:
Blossom Street North, 20 Blossom Street, York, YO24 1AJ (tel: 0871-527 9196)
and Blossom Street South, 28-40 Blossom Street, York, YO24 1AJ (tel: 0871-527 9194).
Just slightly further south along Blossom Street (10 minutes’ walk from the station rather than 5 minutes’) is an Ibis Hotel, 77 The Mount, York, YO24 1BN (tel: 01904-658301).
Because of the popularity of York as a tourist destination, all hotels – including these - tend to fill up quickly: you are advised to book your rooms as early as you can.
