The Elmbank Hotel

Minutes from the heart of York city, overlooking the Knavesmire Strays, lies the Elmbank Hotel -a unique boutique 19th-century mansion with a rich history.

Redesigned by Mackintosh contemporary, George Walton, the Elmbank hotel is home to one of the finest and most complete Art Nouveau collections in the UK. Here, impressive stained-glass, beautiful murals, and detailed stencils meld with modern and sophisticated facilities to provide a space of style, comfort, and interest.

Drink & Dine

Located within the art-filled boutique Elmbank Hotel, Leetham’s Brasserie and the adjoining Peacock Bar are some of York’s coolest places to eat and drink.

Rich in art, culture, and flavour, Leetham’s Brasserie is one of York’s best restaurants, serving exceptional, locally sourced, and seasonal dishes in a beautiful, dramatic space.

Take some time to relax with a cocktail at a quirky bar in York. Elmbank’s Peacock bar is filled with original Art Nouveau treasures and serves a curated, locally inspired cocktail menu and extensive wine list.
