Franks Accountants Limited

Blake House, 18 Blake St, York YO1 8QG, UK – 01904 565565

Adam and the team have been a great asset to our business, they helped us from starting up, to moving over to cloud accounting software with ease within our second year, The guidance and support was second to none, we would highly recommend Franks Accountants to anyone starting a business.

Graham Sunley & Co Ltd

52 Front St, York YO24 3BX, UK – 01904 528100

I was looking for a local accountant for my business and stumbled across this business by chance. Although my business was small-scale, they were extremely knowledgeable and very very helpful. They offered a free consultation, explained things to me in a language that I understood, and genuinely were just really caring and nice people. Highly recommended

Business Dynamo

Blake House, 18 Blake Street, York YO1 8QG, UK – 01904 501401

I approached Business Dynamo mainly for tax assistance but ended up gaining much more than that. The company offers very reliable services for automating the process of accounting with comprehensive tools (Quickfile accounting) that are easy to use and afford as well. Assistance and guidance offered by Business Dynamo for limited company accountancy and tax advice is also very helpful and effective.

Business Dynamo is a reliable company and the involved professionals know what they are doing. I was looking for avenues to save taxes on my 2 year old single proprietorship and I was in complete awe when they handed a whole set of possible avenues where I could save on the bills! Not to mention that my contribution in the process of assessment and filing was limited to a few odd minutes where I only mailed the details to the online accountants of Business Dynamo.

Good bank but only accessible during working hours apart from Saturdays, need to take time off work to go in


13 Parliament St, North Yorkshire, York YO1 8RS, UK – 0345 740 4404

I always had good experience in this branch. I am sorry for some who didn't. Sadly though bankers want to act as masters rather than service for customers and industry. This branch is good though. Act like human rather than a machine 😁

The staff were so much more helpful than any other bank I've been to in York. As opposed to a week wait to get an appointment, I could see someone on the spot. All questions answered and were able to help instead of put up barriers. Thanks guys!

Car Rental plus Van and Minibus Hire for York

Enterprise Rent-A-Car

York Railway Station, Station Rd, York YO24 1AB, UK – 01904 658240

I couldn't have been happier with our one-way rental from York to Dumfries. For one thing, Enterprise is the only agency that HAS a presence in both places, at least as best as I could determine. Both were conveniently located right by the train station. The staff of both were friendly and helpful, and they have a great fill/return same level gas policy, so you don't have the spend the final hour of your rental searching around for gas. They even offered to give us a lift 2 blocks to our hotel since it was raining. I am an Enterprise fan now.

Mel in the office was terrific, very professional and chatty, taking care of the details swiftly and efficiently. Good ambassador for Enterprise

Enterprise Rent-A-Car

15 Foss Islands Rd, York YO31 7UL, UK – 01904 623000

Excellent service-I have never had to rent a car before, and the circumstances were stressful, but the staff were universally friendly and helpful, both at the Scarborough office and the York one, everything was well explained and I would certainly go to Enterprise if I ever needed a hire car again.

H P Maintenance

122 Almsford Rd, York YO26 5NT, UK – 07835 627406

Highly Recommend. My car wouldn't start one morning, rang a few mobile mechanics and none answered. Rang HP who was very helpful and said they would be right round once they had finished current job. Only had to wait a couple of hours and they arrived. Quickly diagnosed the problem and already had the parts in the van so was able to fix in 10 minutes. Price was very good and can't fault the service in anyway. Hopefully won't have many problems with my car, but if I do I will be using them again for sure.

Wow 😮 after finding a problem with my car I called HP Maintenance, a mobile mechanic called Howard who came and fixed my car outside my home the same day, even when he was really busy. He also checked other safety features and made me as a lady driver, feel reassured that I won’t “ breakdown “ on route somewhere important. Fabulous service from a really excellent, trustworthy mechanic. Thank you 👍👍😊😊

Cars For Sale - New & Used Car Sales around York

Turnbulls Mazda York

17-27 Layerthorpe, York YO31 7UZ, UK – 01904 658809

Highly recommend Turnbulls. Exceptionally high quality customer service from all the team and the after care continues after sale. David Smith was particularly helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Friendly and efficient - a winning combination. My Mazda 2 Sport is brilliant too - an absolute joy to drive.

I recently purchased an ex demo CX5 from Turnbulls in York. This was my first experience of Mazda and of this dealership. I must say how impressed I am with the car and level of comfort and technology. The purchasing experience was made particularly enjoyable by Chris Sawyer who had a good knowledge of the vehicle / brand. The whole process was conducted expediently and professionally and I look forward to dealing with them in coming years. The handover process was particularly good by Chris. Time was taken by Graham the Sales Manager to introduce himself and welcome me as a new owner. Can thoroughly recommend these guys.

VFM Cars

Workshop 3, Oakwood Business Park, Northfield Lane, Station Rd, Upper Poppleton, York YO26 6QA, UK – 07968 603939

Bought a car from here 3 years ago. Wayne was very honest and extremely helpful. When I'm looking again will be the first place I'll look

It's always difficult to know which dealers to buy from, especially when someone works as hard as Wayne from VFM and doesn't have a big, flashy forecourt with a coffee machine that you can visit at any time. Having spotted a nice looking Jaguar X-type on his Autotrader site I could only find one review of VFM on line but it was positive, so I decided to go and see it an try to get a feeling for the car and dealer. The car felt good and it's fair to say that I grilled Wayne over the vehicle history and his commitment to after care. I was very impressed with everything he had to say, he was flexible about test drives and willing to talk about deals. I made the purchase and promised that subject to a health check from my mechanic I would post a review, so here it is. Wayne at VFM made me feel welcome, confident about the vehicle I was purchasing and confident that if something unforseen happened he would sort it out. The car is an absolute diamond and I would recommend it and him to anyone. I will definitely see what he has available next time I'm looking for a vehicle.

Autopoint York

95 Holgate Rd, York YO24 4AZ, UK – 01904 622277

We had the pleasure of dealing with the guy's from Autopoint York for a car for my wife, initially all contact was via telephone. Then finally we met up for the handover of the vehicle, and apart from a couple of minor things that were very quickly sorted out without any hesitation. The deal was concluded and we drove the car home all 300mls of the way, without any problems at all. I would highly recommend this garage to anyone, and wouldn't hesitate to use them again in the future. All that remains is to say thanks to all concerned at Autopoint, my wife is very happy with her new wheels.

Bought a fiesta ST a couple of days ago from the guys at auto point york, came to view the car and even though I am a young lad they treated me as if I was any other customer which I felt was very professional, I was delighted with the car and it was exactly how Ross described it over the phone, we went out for a drive in the car and I was sold ! They gave me a good price for my part exchange and even had it Serviced free of charge ready to be picked up the next day, Great service from the team, Thankyou

Central Heating Boiler Servicing and Repairs around York

Henderson Heating

95 Albemarle Rd, York YO23 1EP, UK – 07513 331811

Laurence Henderson recently installed a big boiler in our new home. The service that he has provided is second to none, friendly, clean and very professional. We spent quite a bit of time looking for a plumber in York and it's not an easy task because some are not very serious and you never know who can you trust or not. Mr Henderson is honest, knows what is doing and at a reasonable price. we certainly found our plumber. See you next year for the boiler service. your French customer:)

Laurence Henderson recently installed a new boiler in my house. He was highly responsive, very reliable and carried out high quality work; also, his quotation was very reasonable and the most competitive one (among the quotes I received; many engineers that I contacted did not even bother to return a quotation) If you need a new boiler (or repair an old one) Laurence is your man!

Hurrell Plumbing & Heating Ltd

Bolan House, 19C Front St, York YO24 3BW, UK – 01904 289226

Excellent. Arrived when they said, a sterling job, completely quickly and ahead of time. Would highly recommend and very nice people to boot. A lovely tidy job, very impressive copper work indeed. Thank you!. Full boiler swap out, with the addition of a radiator, an outside tap and hooked up to Nest. Super Fancy! High Recommend

Edit: they've now sent me the gas Safe cert I'll start by saying I got a boiler fitted by these and it's been working fine and they were fairly cheap. The issue is that they didn't register it as ''gas safe', which is now apparent when I'm selling my house. As someone else mentioned they are impossible to get hold of. Sent a message from their website, left voicemail and kept trying to call. I've heard nothing. Terrible service considering the initial job wasn't done correctly.

highly recommended. The folks here fixed my tumble dryer, and were super friendly and informative. prices extremely reasonable too. after it came back it had a related fault which they sorted out and basically didn't expect payment for, i had to insist 😀 highly recommended Update: I went back with a broken vacuum, and they fixed it in a day. Again, super fast and super friendly service, and very reasonable prices. Dont throw out that old appliance, get it inspected for only £5 and you might be pleasantly surprised.

Unfortunately it wasn't good news for us this time around, but by calling Shaun we were able to avoid throwing good money after bad. Extremely grateful for Shaun's honest and thoroughly professional assistance.

Prompt, friendly and knowledgeable service. I’d highly recommend S. R. Washers. Our washing machine broke and Hotpoint said we’d have to wait two days for someone to fix it. I phoned S. R. Washers and the machine was fixed a few hours later at a third of the price that Hotpoint had quoted.

A-OK Driving School

115 Lindsey Ave, York YO26 4RR, UK – 07402 363418

Just passed my test with A-OK, Paul is a very knowledge driving instructor, giving pupils the option to learn from the new client centered approach, while maintaining a quality insight into the key areas to get you through the new structure driving test that came out in December 2017. Throughout my time with Paul he was very professional, punctual and made you feel like you was his only student with his great people coaching skills. He always maintained a great balance between learning and fun to help you retain what you had learnt each week. From the start I said I didn't want to rush things, so over the weeks we covered all the aspects of the old and new test standards and then I booked in for a test and passed first time due to Paul's detailed training. I would highly recommend him if your looking to learn to drive in York area.

Just passed my test with A-OK, Paul is a quality driving instructor and I would happily recommend anyone to use A-OK. I had previously failed my test twice before but passed first time with Paul, really goes to show the right instructor can make a big difference. Luke

Employment & Recruitment Agencies

Bridge Recruitment Ltd

7-9 Piccadilly, York YO1 9PB, UK – 01904 655266

Having now worked for Bridge Recruitment for around 6 months I think their agent care is excellent. They have actively found me placements that are convenient and have reasonable hours. Most importantly they have shown appreciation for the work that I have done and kept regular contact with me. They live up to their tag line "Passionate about people" - so thank you.

Adecco York

Queens House, 3 - 9 Micklegate, York YO1 6JH, UK – 01904 640333

On a formal level, good when they present themselves but they are not very good at getting back to you by mail or phone. Hugely disappointing.

Stroud Resourcing

Richmond House,, 4 St Mary's Ct, York YO24 1AH, UK – 0845 643 4045

I joined Stroud for their first summer graduate scheme intake, and have received consistent and comprehensive training since I started. The senior management team are supportive, and you are genuinely rewarded for your work (personally love winning the Tombola!). You have complete autonomy from the beginning and we are already managing our own sector and working on vacancies which is really exciting!

Fantastic place to work and develop! Pros: I am a recent University of York graduate and after working at the university for a year after graduating I was looking for a career that would keep me motivated, challenged and ultimately one that rewards the effort I put in. I have found that and more at Stroud Resourcing! Prior to this role I had no experience of recruitment whatsoever, fast forward 6 months and I had made placements, overachieved on my financial target and arranged a holiday to Sicily on the back of a particularly successful month. If you are looking to really learn, develop and achieve with an employer with the patience to stand by you throughout the ups and downs of recruitment then I can't recommend Stroud Resourcing highly enough. + Positive office atmosphere: we work hard but we know how to have a laugh too. + Amazing away days: from cocktail masterclasses to exploring York Dungeon we are treated to some superb trips out at the end of a hard-working month. Usually accompanied by a mouth-watering meal in one of York's many top restaurants. + Hard work is rewarded: I love that hard work is recognised in this organisation and it feels good to be rewarded if you put the effort in through; Employee of the Month & Quarter, Salary Increases and Activity rewards to name a few. + Learning and development: I can't emphasise this enough, through dedicated training sessions, 1:1 training and plenty of chances to put your learning into practice, it isn't too long before you're doing the doing! + Location: When I graduated, all I wanted to do was stay in the city I fell in love with at University and because of the location of Stroud Resourcing I am fully settled in a flat within walking distance to work. + Supportive and Considerate Management: This is so important to me and the management team are approachable and understanding of any real-life issues you may have. Overall a brilliant place to work and one that I can see a future career in. The perfect place for any Graduate or 2nd Jobber looking to start a career in recruitment! Cons: - The nature of recruitment is that it can be unpredictable (which is half the fun too!) but you can put all the hard work in only for something out of your control to go wrong it can be tough, but this is the case in most industries that deal with human-beings! - The hours can be long but again that's recruitment and you tend to find the more you put in the more you get out. - If you aren't a fan of the odd Dad-Joke then be aware. I am as guilty as anyone for some of the worst workplace puns you will hear. - With KFC and Subway very close by you can often be tempted to spend money on lunches which whilst tasty can eat into (pun-intended) your hard-earned commission. Advice to Management: Keep it up! Thank you for introducing me to this fantastic industry. I am looking forward to building my career with Stroud Resourcing and please continue to be considerate to the real-world problems that can occur.

Hot Tips on selling your house

Estate Agents

Ashtons Estate Agents - Acomb

5 Front St, York YO24 3BW, UK – 01904 799333

We were very pleased with Ashtons throughout the house buying process. From viewings to key collection we found the team helpful and friendly, with no hesitation to answer any questions we had. Adam really helped to make choosing our first house less daunting, and Jade kept us in the loop throughout the rest of the buying process. Thanks everyone!

Viewed a house recently which came on the market. Was met by Adam who was very helpful and knowledgeable. Also had my own property valued by Kennedy. Good valuation backed up by local evidence. Kennedy was professional and pleasant throughout. If I do decide to sell, I won't hesitate to contact her in order to put my property on the market. Thanks

Ashtons Estate Agents - Bootham

1 Bootham, York YO30 7BN, UK – 01904 659222

We are really impressed with the service we received from Ashtons Estate Agents, and we can't recommend them enough. They go out of there way to help you and can't do enough for you. It was the coldest day on record and the boiler stopped working. It was on a Sunday, but we received someone out to mend it within the hour. We were very impressed, especially as it was thick with snow. It is a refreshing change to deal with a professional Company where all the staff give an outstanding, professional and caring service. After the last letting agent, it was great to have a letting agent who really looks after their tenants. It is a refreshing change to deal with a professional Company where all the staff give an outstanding, professional and caring service.

I have been extremely impressed by Ashtons throughout the entire process. Having previously attempted to sell my house with Coalters, I decided to take some time out and then re-launch with Ashtons, just 6 weeks ago. Everything from viewings, the communication, to feedback, to photographs and now to progression has been fantastic. I genuinely feel that they are working very hard for us!

Mum passed away recently having lived with me for sometime. Having had J Rymer funeral director in the past I had no questions but to ask them to do mum's even though I'm in the Wirral and wanted mum to be back in York with dad. Thay took care of everything!!

As a fellow landscaping company based in Leeds, we had a client contact us in York who required her garden landscaping as soon as possible. As we weren't able to assist due to her location, I contacted Matt. Sanders landscaping completed the job much to her satisfaction and to a high standard that we were proud of and personally maintain. We continue to work with Matt and his team and give them 5*!

Matt and his team gave the garden here in York a complete makeover and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. Friendly and polite with a highly professional setup. I've had dealings with other firms in the area and Sanders would definitely be my preference.

Amazing cut and colour with Amy. Was treated wonderfully by all the staff and they couldn’t do more for me, very welcoming. My hair also looks and feels amazing! After going to so many other dreadful salons, my trust in hair dressers has now been restored. Also had my brows tinted and threaded and they’ve never looked better.

Earlier this month I tried LVL lashes for the first time with sally, I’ve never had any lash treatment before so I wasn’t too sure what to expect. Sally talked through what she would be doing before the treatment and all the way though it. I’m so in love with the end result and how the process went to achieve it. It will defiantly be a treatment to do again!

Thank you Paul for the welcoming meet, it was great to be back. It was great to have a brilliant haircut after many years. Great memories were chatted about what fun. Thank you once again Richard

As a customer of Cube for well over a decade now, it’s not only the best cut I’ve ever had but it’s also the friendliest and most welcoming gents barbers around... hence why I keep going back! Normally I’ll see Paul but both Derrick and Gemma have also cut my hair over the years and I’ve no hesitation in reccomending any of the guys.

Simply amazing salon, superb team. Quite honestly the best hairdressing experience I have EVER had. And no question, the best haircuts I have ever had - time after time. I'm always getting stopped by people asking who cuts my hair!! There's a really fantastic atmosphere also - a cool fusion of British/Italian. Can't recommend highly enough.

Always friendly service and a great cut, if you want a coffee just ask, if your football mad you won't be short of conversation with the boys, if you get there early you can play Fifa while you wait. The only downside is cash only but there's a cash machine around the corner if you forget.

The Grosvenor Salon

50 Grosvenor Terrace, York YO30 7AG, UK – 01904 635062

Been going to Debbie for a few years now and every haircut has been perfect. I think it's the little things that make it a great experience; a welcoming atmosphere, a good chat and not too rough like some hairdressers can be! Don't believe the negative reviews, they are from someone who tried to destroy a hard working woman's livelihood. Love the salon!

I am the owner of the salon...Debbie kingham. Martin Smith is the partner of the woman who neatly cost me my business of almost 17 years ...I left her in charge of my lively hood while I had some time off to have my baby. She almost destroyed my business.. and obviously has no shame in what she did.... Luckily my customers know me very well and know it's another attempt to try and destroy me again !

Nikki was wonderful to work with from the beginning of our wedding planning until the end.

I booked Chris for a whole day one-to-one photography lesson. He was fabulous...he went at my own pace and explained things very simply , so easy to follow. It was a fun day with great results. His ‘Venice’ evening was really interesting too. He gave a talk on the history and views of Venice accompanied by beautiful photos which he had taken. He is so talented. It is well worth a visit to his gallery as many photos are breath taking.

Superb landscape photography. Excellent knowledge of Lee filters and how to get the best results with them. I have attended a day tuition in York with Chris on one of his courses. Thoroughly enjoyed the day. I have also joined his Facebook group which involves monthly competitions with people who have spent time with Chris, and keeps on growing. I first met Chris at my work place, printing some of his work for greeting cards.

7 Apollo Street, Heslington Road, York YO10 5AP, UK – 01904 647422

Fulprint printed our wedding invitations and stationary and did a fantastic job. They were so quick and very reasonably priced. Thank you!

We've worked with Fulprint since we started 12 years ago, which speaks volumes as we haven't gone anywhere else! Great service and exceptional quality of print, the team always go the extra mile for us turning our print round in a very efficient, timely manner. Always friendly and helpful I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Press Green Ltd

20-22 Lord Mayor's Walk, York YO31 7HA, UK – 01904 632313

Professional service.

Give and get free stuff.
Here you will find lots of items that people are willing to give away, for FREE! This is instead of taking them to a local landfill site. The aim of this site is to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill (20.9 million tonnes of it last year in the UK) and recycling is great news for the environment. We all know that we need to recycle more - and this is a great way of doing it. The only charge for an item is postage and packing (and that should be charged at cost), unless you find the item within your local area. Once you have registered on the site and entered the first part of your postcode, you will be able to look for items within YO24, York or North Yorkshire. A national UK database of free stuff !

Always welcomed by friendly and cheerful staff when attending to recycle some items, happy to help and great work ethic! Everything is clearly laid out and perfect spaces to pull in your car ensuring you don't block the flow of traffic. Well done CYC this place is a merit to you!

York Community Furniture Store Ltd

Unit 29/34A, The Raylor Centre, James St, York YO10 3DW, UK – 01904 426444

Lovely store and friendly staff, my delivery was on time and the guys were very helpful and they carried my furniture into the house for me. Will definitely be using the store again

Need to change the times on the google site because over turned up plenty of time and its been closed or closing when google says different

Wyevale Garden Centre

Northfield Lane, Upper Poppleton, York YO26 6QE, UK – 0844 288 5067

The staff are, for the most part, friendly and helpful. They have a good selection of products here, however most are overpriced. The cafe serves okay food but again it’s expensive for what it is. The store can be very hot in summer months, but is not usually too busy.

Removals & Storage Household

Acomb Removals & Storage

Clifford House, 7-9 Clifford St, York YO1 9RA, UK – 01904 331357

What a fantastic service from John and his team. I knew several people had used Acomb removals in our village and didn't even bother to get a quote elsewhere. As usual when moving everything was last minute and we worked together to get packed up and moved into storage. Excellent service and fantastic value would highly recommend.

I've moved house several times, including across the Atlantic. These guys, recommended to me by friends, provided the most professional service at the best price that I've ever experienced. Highly recommended.

I order from here all the time. They have a really great menu and it's all reasonably priced too. Their chow main is my favourite from any where. Delivery is always on time or early too. This is my go to takeaway for Chinese food now and the quality is always consistently good over the two years I’ve been ordering from here.

Sapphire Chinese Takeaway

76 The Mount, York YO24 1AR, UK – 01904 628432

The food was absolutely DELICIOUS but the delivery man was very rude and has upset me. If you want good food, go here. If you want good service, don't bother! I must re-itterate though, the food was tasty.

I have used Langleys to buy a house and they went above and beyond. I have just recently gotten divorced and thanks to the straightforward honest advice from the excellent Anna Sutcliffe, I ended a hellish year with an excellent, fair settlement. I would highley recommend.

Excellent service from Phil and Sarah. I was kept up to date every step of the way and recieved a professional, friendly and courteous service throughout. All work was completed promptly and accurately.

Newtons Solicitors Limited

Maple House, 1 Wykeham Rd, York YO26 6QW, UK – 01904 409071

Newtons have been very helpful with a variety of issues

We recently used Newtons to sell our house and purchase a new build and we have been very happy with the service we have received from Newtons and in particular Claire Weatherly - Wright and Michelle Anderson at theYork branch. Throughout the process everything was actioned promptly, explained clearly and recapped in writing for absolute clarity. The process from our buyers side was pretty frustrating and difficult but Newtons made sure that we got the exchange done in time as if it had been left to our buyers solicitors then there was a real risk that we could have lost the property we were purchasing. People are often quick to complain about service they are not happy with and I am pleased to review that our experience with Newtons was a very positive one and I would not hesitate to use them for any other legal matters. I would definitely recommend Newtons services to anyone else.

Local Taxi firms, Cabs, Airport Transfer & Transportation Services, Chauffeur Driven Car Hire and Mini Cabs in YO24


York Cars Taxis

4, Odeon Buildings, Blossom St, York YO24 1AJ, UK – 01904 765765

The app is okay, not brilliant. Sometimes the bookings disappear but once I refresh the page, they appear again. The tracking feature map is often very zoomed in and won't zoom out, but otherwise the app works fine. The time and fare estimations are pretty solid. I have paid using card through this app - seems legit. I've always been charged the final fare, although it does take a few days for the transaction to appear in my account, as expected. There's also a "call" feature to call your cab, although it hasn't worked for me. I kept getting an automated "press 1 to contact your driver" message and then when I pressed 1, the call would just end. My only other complaint is that whenever I get "your taxi has arrived" texts, they always seem to be from different numbers, so I end up with a new text conversation every time I book a cab. It's annoying. Other than that, drivers have been fine so far. Mostly on time. I will continue to use this service.

We ordered a taxi from Skipwith to York. The taxi was early and so just went out and asked if we were okay for a minute and he was great and acknowledged he was early. He was really polite and friendly and the cost was very reasonable given the distance. So much so we asked for a card, so that we could order a taxi for the return journey!

Streamline & Local Taxis

7 Cumberland St, York YO1 9SW, UK – 01904 656565

I used this taxi service to move my stuff from my house to my storage facility. When I first called, I was put off by a rude phone operator who was quite snappy and wasn’t helpful. Reluctantly I rang them again this morning, and was greeted by a more helpful and calmer staff member who gave me a quote and was super helpful. The taxi driver himself was amazing. Super helpful and friendly. I was so amazed by the price and the quickness of the whole thing I forgot to leave the driver a tip which was a big mistake on my behalf. I am extremely grateful and happy with the overall execution.


7, 14 Redeness St, York YO31 7UU, UK – 01904 707070

Fantastic company who got us from Huby to York races and back without any problems x even thanks to the operator for locating us in York on a busy Saturday night x

Fantastic service by the most helpful driver ever! He went out of his way to help us and was so kind and funny, thank you Wolf!!

Travel Agencies

STA Travel

3 Low Ousegate, York YO1 9QX, UK – 01904 206924

All this hate one here. Geeez! I've been using STA Travel for years now and never had any issues whatsoever. I have used numerous stores and like this one, they're always inviting, knowledgeable and easy to talk to. It's best to go in there knowing what you want to do as the options available are vast, depending on budget. I would say if you're looking for a standard beige holiday of lying on the beach use another travel agency, but if you're looking for adventure or volunteer work (which I highly recommend) use STA travel. The guys in the York branch are great, they have always been there to answer my questions via mobile, email or in store. You can also get travel insurance from STA which cuts out any middle man, and its good value too, with a wide range of covers. I would recommend popping in store and picking up a brochure or two, there's so much to look at and consider so take your time, then when you're ready head back to the store and I'm sure one of the lovely members of staff will help you, they have done for me.

Richer Sounds, York

12 St Sampsons Square, York YO1 8RN, UK – 0333 900 0084

One of the better shops for customer service when things go wrong, in this case a firmware update problem, which is now resolved. They went the extra mile by paying my car park charge, while I had to wait for an upload, and gave me a free ethernet cable which should prevent a repeat of the problem. If only all shops were as good as richer sounds!

These guys are brilliant. I've got to the stage where I wouldn't bother shopping anywhere else in this category (including online). They know their stuff and are really helpful.

Veterinary Surgeons

Minster Equine Veterinary Clinic

N Field Ln, York YO26 6QF, UK – 01904 788840

I chose this practise rather than my local one as I am more confident with their expertise. Julian spent 3 hours with my horse and explored every avenue. He then referred us to rainbow and is now assisting me with an insurance issue. Katie has always been super helpful and is really knowledgeable in treating horses with sacroilliac issues.

The Minster Veterinary Practice

Salisbury Rd, York YO26 4YN, UK – 01904 643997

Very caring and professional veterinary clinic. I can not fault the care that any of my pets have received here! I would most definitely recommend The Minster veterinary clinic to anyone. Prices can be a little high compared to other vets in the area but the care is well worth it!

I have two cats, but only one carrier so I took them in one at a time on the same day. It was really good say to get the appointments and both vets I saw were very friendly and helpful. Signed up for a plan and saved a lot of money 🙂

Very very friendly bunch of people so helpful with whatever you need. They give you good advice when you need it. I would just like to say that I went in one day looking for a few bits and I had some questions to ask. Not only did they help me out and answer everything I needed they had the decency to not only tell me what product would suit me best for what I wanted to do but they also told me that the items they had would of done the job, he went on to advise me to go to another certain shop where they had an item that would be better suited for what I wanted. Very very nice of him to do and I can not recommend them enough. They give you good advice and do not base the advice on biased views just to push their products for the sale. 10/10 will be using them alot in the future after this very very impressed. Thanks guys
