The Judge’s Lodging Inn York Review: February 2020

Think relaxed luxury, charm and elegance, the Judge’s Lodging located in an enviable postcode in the centre of York, in north-east England, perfectly situated in the main hub for easy access to all the city’s main attractions.

A gorgeous Grade I listed building, a Georgian townhouse steeped in charm and history, whereby the building’s origins date back to 1710 when it was built as a private residence.

Eventually, after the passing of the owner, the building became the residence of judges attending the Assize court sessions and remained so until around 1976.

The Judges adorn the walls and at Christmas things are rather grand with the addition of a gorgeously decorated Christmas tree.

This stunning residence has a restaurant, two bars, along with some quirky fixtures and fittings providing some super special character rooms.

Feature rooms at the Judge’s Lodging always have that extra character and detail.
