York is a forward-looking City that maintains a perfect balance
between the charm of a rich heritage and the virtues of modern
lifestyle amenities, with fantastic connectivity to London, Edinburgh and beyond. Embedded in the City's historic heart, St Leonard's Place enjoys exceptional views and is well placed to take advantage of York's best assets. The development, within the ancient Roman Walls, rubs shoulders with stunning landmarks, venues of culture, seductive eateries, quality shopping and grand parks, all within the environs of York Minster.

A collection of beautiful parks and green spaces provide the backdrop for the City, offering peaceful places to relax and stroll. Alongside St Leonard's Place lie the Museum Gardens, a ten-acre botanical park, which was planted as St Leonard's Place was being built and now offers a sense of "country in the City". The nearby Dean's Park, one of York's best-loved spots, offers a quiet and reflective space from which to experience the magnificent Minster.

The River Ouse is just minutes away with the infamous New Walk; a stately, tree-lined avenue created during the reign of George II. An artists' garden behind York Art Gallery, linking to the Museum Gardens, Marygate and Exhibition Square, forms part of this fine array of exquisite spaces.

For those with a love of the arts, there's much to discover on a short stroll, with York Art Gallery and its national collections of paintings and ceramics, and Yorkshire Museum, which digs deep into the City's ancient and Roman history. The Theatre Royal,
one of the country's leading producing theatres, is so close it shares your address.

Situated in the historic core of the City, within the City Walls and with the gravitational pull of the magnificent York Minster, St Leonard's Place is on the doorstep of many of York's foremost amenities. The City encompasses an eclectic mix of shops, numerous purveyors offering mouth watering menus, manicured grand parks and unmissable cultural attractions, together with illustrious schools and celebrated universities. With everything you could need, it is a location that offers you the freedom to create the life you want.

York's largely pedestrianised centre is easy to navigate and offers much to attract the keen shopper. Gillygate is a favoured home of independent retailers and Parliament Street and Coney Street are where the larger chains reside. In contrast, the nearby Shambles is the famous medieval lane with a cluster of adorable boutique shops.

Equally picturesque is Stonegate, where upmarket retail brands vie for attention.

The City's favourite bars, tearooms, coffee houses, gastropubs and restaurants are too numerous to list, but a few highlights within a short walk demand a mention. For an excellent coffee or brunch, head around the corner to Brew and Brownie on Museum Street. For deli delights drop down to the Hairy Fig on Fossgate. Mannion & Co, on Blake Street, is a fine bistro, patisserie and artisan bakery. Visit The Park restaurant
on St Peters Grove, to sample Adam Jackson's acclaimed tasting menu, and the Star Inn The City, overlooking the Museum Gardens, offers the delight of Andrew Pern's culinary talents.

Just a brief walk over the River Ouse brings you right into York
Station. With unrivalled connections, it is your 'on hand' transport megahub. The high-speed East Coast line links you into London King's Cross (1 hour 45 minutes), with the international connections offered by St Pancras, and Edinburgh (2 hours 32 minutes). Direct connections to Manchester, Manchester Airport, Newcastle and Birmingham, as well as Leeds Station, with its links to Leeds Bradford Airport, facilitate your wider and global connections.
