  York Visitor Centre
by Britannia2

The tourist office is based in Exhibition Square and is open from 0900 - 17.00 everyday with extended hours in the summer. It sells souvenirs, postcards etc and the staff can offer advice on any York travel based question you may have - they can even book hotel rooms.
The De Grey Rooms were built in 1841 and designed by the architect G T Andrews. The original purpose of these elegant rooms was for pursuits of pleasure such as balls, concert performances, recitals and other such entertainments. In fact it still has a use as a place of public meetings and for the occasional concert. The De Grey Rooms also served, at one time, as an officers' mess for the Yorkshire Hussars.
Please note that in summer 2009 the centre will move to Museum Street - call 01904 550099 before visiting if you are unsure where to go.
