Local Area Guide: Bishopthorpe Road


To the south of York City Centre lies the Bishopthorpe Road area.  It is a perfect location for young professionals working in the city, but also for families, with the delightful Rowntree Park and some highly recommended schools nearby.

Stylish modern apartments can be found along the banks of the River Ouse while set a little further back you can find a host of pretty Victorian terraced houses, many of which retain a wealth of period character and features.

A variety of shops, including greengrocers, an antique shop and a mini supermarket, can be found on Bishopthorpe Road and much of the area is within easy walking distance of York City Centre with its more extensive facilities. 

York railway station is just minutes away and there is convenient access to the A19 and A64 making the area ideal for those commuting around the region.
