THE MINSTER VILLAGE AT YORK MINSTER OFFERS REFRESHMENTS WITH THE BEST VIEW IN THE CITY OVER THE FESTIVE PERIOD
The Minster Village has returned for its second year over the festive period, with decorative wooden cabins offering food, drinks and gifts and the best place to sit and admire the view of York Minster.
Without the hustle and bustle of the city centre, visitors can browse the novel range of Yorkshire-made gifts and produce from gins, cheeses and chocolates to Yorkshire’s finest wool cushions and throws.
The team behind The Minster Village has worked with many local businesses to bring their products to The Yorkshire Gift Shop, including shortbread and nibbles from Taste of Yorkshire, Reet Yorkshire Food’s festive trio of jam, marmalade and chutney, Yorkshire Puds with their sticky toffee range of puddings, gins and gin truffles as well as produce from the Wensleydale Creamery and Whitby’s Baytown Coffee Company. Cosy Christmas gifts from Yorkshire Blankets include throws, cushions, ‘rag’ wreaths and lavender-filled hearts, while Fairfax Distillery & Chocolatiers offer a tantalising range of spirits and scrumptious chocolates.
For a refreshing break from shopping The Village Bar is fully-licensed and offers everything from traditional gluhwein, draught beers and a selection of hot and cold drinks, including fabulous coffee and everyone’s Christmas favourite – hot chocolate with whipped cream and marshmallows. Nextdoor The Dog Haus has a range of winter warming food, including bratwurst, currywurst and parmesan & truffle fries. Heated and covered tables provide the perfect place to relax, refuel and listen to the Minster bells.
