In a landmark setting on the eastern banks of the River Ouse stands the 14th-century, Grade I listed Lendal Tower.
After a careful, sympathetic renovation Lendal Tower now gives you the opportunity to encounter a unique medieval living experience with a welcoming level of contemporary comfort.
Sleeping up to 6 people Lendal Tower is a truly unique place to stay on your next visit to the City of York.
Lendal Tower dates back to the reign of Richard I (Richard the Lion Heart) and has stood next to the River Ouse since 1299.
Built as part of the City of York's new medieval wall defences - symbolic of its growing importance as England's then second city, the function of Lendal Tower (then known as St Leonard's Tower) was primarily to protect the city's river entrance in times of war.
On your doorstep are numerous attractions to suit all ages, with river boat trips, ghost walks, art galleries and theatres, plus an abundance of quirky shops, restaurants and inns.
The Tower's unrivalled central location is perfect for exploring a wealth of other historical buildings:
