The latest phase is underway in one of Britain’s most historic cities. Hungate is York’s striking new residential quarter in the centre of the city.

The location couldn’t be better. Hungate, cradled in a bend of the River Foss, is just a stroll from the city’s beautiful medieval heart and less than a mile from majestic York Minster. It’s York in its purest essence.

This is a part of the city that’s been ignored for too long. Happily, it’s now coming back to life as a vibrant neighbourhood of homes, shops, places of work and leisure, and the latest phase adds 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments to this exciting mix. Hungate feels special, and it is.

Local Information

Leisure Facilities

Hungate is on the eastern side of York city centre, on the banks of the River Foss. It’s a location steeped in history.

Citizens from the medieval era would recognise Hungate as the centre of York, as it is located within the ancient city walls built during this period, most of which still stand. For those living in York today, Hungate combines proximity to the shops and restaurants of the lively centre, with a multitude of views of York’s splendid historic buildings.

The River Foss flows past the development and provides the opportunity for waterside walks and an outlook over some of the city’s splendid industrial heritage buildings at Navigation Wharf.

Leisure time in York could be as simple as an afternoon on the river. Or you could choose the theatre, a festival, a day at the races perhaps?

Culture is alive and thriving in York, with several theatres in the city and a Grand Opera House. York Art Gallery and York St Mary’s are two venues for serious art appreciation, the whole city is a treasure house of art and architecture. A walk along the wonderfully well preserved city walls demonstrates that perfectly.

Festivals make regular appearances on York’s calendar: the Jorvik Viking Festival in February, outdoor Mystery Plays and Early Music in July, Food and Drink in September, and there are plenty of Christmas events that make the most of the romantic old-world setting.

Thanks to the world class Knavesmire racecourse, known as the Ascot of the north, there is no need to travel far in order to enjoy the splendour of classic British horse racing.

Yorkshire is England’s largest county and its people are most proud of this fact. Its countryside, wild and rugged, is also some of Britain’s finest.

Yorkshire has Dales, Moors and Wolds, all vast areas of unspoilt countryside seamed by the dry stone walls built by sheep farmers centuries ago. It is a landscape that shaped British history. The wool trade founded England’s prosperity, and Yorkshire’s fast flowing rivers and streams powered the mills of the Industrial Revolution.

Today much of rural Yorkshire still feels unchanged. You can walk, cycle, ride or drive for miles, taking in amazing vistas as you go. Parts of it are gentle and rolling, other parts craggy and challenging. The modern world feels a long way away.

The beautifully preserved centre of York is characterised by quaintly named winding lanes where medieval buildings create a firm sense of history.

As for dining, York has a truly cosmopolitan selection of restaurants, bistros and bars serving specialities from all over the world, and all are within easy walking distance of Hungate. Traditional pubs abound, several of them reputed to be haunted. It’s also a great café city, where you can enjoy a cappuccino while observing the lively street scene. Betty’s is the grande dame of the cafés, established in the 1920s, but there are dozens of other spots where you can relax and soak up the unique atmosphere of York.

You can’t escape history in York: and that’s one of its charms. Romans, Saxons, Vikings, medieval merchants and Victorian entrepreneurs have all made their mark on the city.

“The history of York is the history of England,” said King George VI, and he was correct. Wandering around the city, you discover beautiful and important buildings that reflect centuries of events and culture.

York Minster is one of the great cathedrals of the world and a remembrance of the time when religion was central to the lives of everyone. Clifford’s Tower, with its domineering presence, is a symbol of the absolute power of medieval monarchs. The city walls, partly Roman, mainly medieval, show how cities of the past always needed defences against their enemies. Elsewhere, the narrow streets reveal merchants’ halls and Georgian townhouses. History is all around you.

Local Shopping

Like any successful city, York has moved with the times and within the maze of cobbled streets you will find some decidedly upmarket modern shops, restaurants and cafés. The Shambles, Stonegate and Petergate form the quintessential centre of the city where art galleries, antique shops, patisseries, book shops and boutiques now hold sway.

Transport Links

York has fantastic rail and road connections to all parts of Britain. The main station is only 15 minutes on foot from Hungate, where all the major centres of work and leisure in the north of England can be reached by direct services.
