Join the A1237 York outer ring road from your approach road.
Take the A19 turning into the city centre; the junction is at the Rawcliffe Bar Park & Ride site, and you will see a Leapfrog Nursery on the roundabout.
Follow the road into the city for approx 2 miles going straight through the traffic lights at Clifton Green.
Once you have passed the Churchill Hotel on the left and the York Registry Office on the right look out for the road Marygate to the right - the end of the road is marked with a tower which once formed part of St Mary's Abbey.
Turn down Marygate and follow the road to the end where it bears to the right - ahead of you will be the Marygate Car Park.
Turn left and then immediately right which will take you down behind the row of houses which is Earlsborough Terrace.
The private car park for the Abbey Guest House is at the end of this small road - please be careful when you get almost into the car park as you have to cross a foot and cycle path before parking up.
Please park in any available space and come into the house via the side gate.
Come out of the main entrance to York Railway Station and walk left towards the city centre.
Cross Leeman Road and carry on walking past the bus stop and under the city wall.
Bear left and walk across Lendal Bridge.
Just as you get opposite Pizza Express there is a small set of stone steps which leads down to your left - walk down the steps.
(If you are carrying or towing heavy bags then carry on about 20 metres further and turn left back on yourself down the track which leads down to the river.)
At the bottom of the steps walk straight ahead along the riverside on Dame Judi Dench walk, past the Museum Gardens on your right.
Continue on to the end of the row of houses on the river side - Abbey Guest House is the last house in the row. If you go under the railway bridge then you have gone too far.
