The York Bridge Club itself is in an area in Acomb just off an area called The Green and behind a road called Ridgeway. Post code YO26 5FG


Below is a small selection of options available with the approximate distance and travelling time to the York Bridge Club in the suburb of Acomb.



Travelling by train?


Suggested accommodation would be the Premier Inn in Blossom Street, York. This is approx 5 mins walk from the train station. It has both the No5 or 5a bus (orange line) stop opposite. This bus goes directly to Acomb (Use the Front Street Stop) and the bridge club is approx 5 mins walk from the bus stop in Acomb. And also the number 1 bus (green line) which also stops in Acomb.

Details of the routes and timetables can be found from these web pages:  York | First Bus  and  Route maps | First Bus


Not worried about staying in the centre of York and have transport available?  Try :

Premier Inn (York North West) which is also a Beefeater (address York Business Park, White Rose Close, YO26 6RL). It is just off the ring road about 5-10 mins drive away and has plenty of parking and is easy to find.

There is also Premier Inn at York North.


Other possible options (there are many more in the area)

Carlton Lodge, Acomb Road. YO24 4HA 1 mile less than 5 min drive

Best Western Kilima, Holgate Road. YO24 4AZ 1.5 miles, 5 min drive

The Holgate Bridge, Holgate Road. YO24 4BB 1.5 miles, 5 min drive


Or search for your own accommodation near Acomb, York, (YO26 5FG) you should find plenty of options including B&Bs and self-catering apartments.


Other York locations (with the city centre accessible):


Holiday Inn, Tadcaster Road. YO24 1QF 2 miles, 5-10 min drive

York Marriott, Tadcaster Road. YO24 1QQ 2 miles, 5-10 min drive


If you use Tadcaster Road accommodation, the quickest route to the club will be to head out of York to the outer ring road (A1237 towards Harrogate) and continue to the Wetherby Road roundabout turning right back towards the city centre. After crossing a mini roundabout, turn left beside the car wash/Pizza Hut and continue along this small road until you round a corner and see the bridge club entrance on the right.
