I've stayed at the Travelodge Central a few times in York. It's a nice modern Travelodge, next door to a Wetherspoons pub. It does exactly what it says on the tin, it is a Travelodge after all. Great location, 5mins walk from the centre and just around the corner from Cliffords Tower area. It's a solid choice.

As for the outlet shopping centre, people do rave about it but I think it's a bit rubbish. Good if you are a medium (I am not), which seems to be the size of the majority of clothes stock. There are other shops as well though, so you might pick up a bargain. I don't know if I would bother with a special journey on public transport though. We normally leave it until our journey home to Norwich and stop off there for an hour on the way out of York on the A64.

The York Outlet centre is operated by the same company that runs Cheshire Oaks.

There are a good range of shops and especially designer shops. Its also indoors, so do not have to worry about the weather.

I belive there are frequent bus services and you have the details of the website that has more information.

The Outlet has a park and ride site in its car park, so you can easily get there and back by using the park and ride buses in reverse, or you can catch the Arriva Selby bus which calls in at the outlet. Just make sure you get the correct Park and Ride from York as there are 5 different ones!

There's a regular bus route every 20 minutes during the day that goes to outlet centre. It stops a few places but the easiest place for you to pick it up is outside The Gallery nightclub on cliffords street (just a bit along from the fire station and magristates court). Costs a couple of quid return (or it did when I last went!). Takes about 20 minutes depending on traffic.

This is the bus companies site with routes and times

As others have said it is very easy to get to-but my question would be why??

There is good stuff but also some less so-suggest you check the stores in the centre and whether they are for you before you go

It is noticeable that even with MacArthur Glen, most York people still go to Leeds when they want the best choice of clothes...
