York is famous for many things—the Roman heritage, the leaning Medieval houses of the Shambles, the imposing York Minster—but fewer know that York is a city partly built upon chocolate.

If you and your sweetheart fancy a romantic break in one of the UK's most charming cities, unwrap an overnight stay for two from Sunday to Thursday in The Queen's Hotel for £59 (up to a £121.50 value). Once you've settled into your comfortable Superior River View room overlooking the Ouse, your location right in the heart of the city means all of York's remarkable history, not to mention its top-notch shopping hotspots, are on the doorstep. And if you choose to dine on a main course each in the hotel restaurant, you'll also receive a bottle of house wine.

After a hearty breakfast, you'll feel like a kid in a sweetshop as you consider what to indulge yourself with first. A stroll along the ancient city walls still provides a stunning aspect of the town under the shadow of York Minster—one of Europe's largest cathedrals and a Gothic monument as awe-inspiring as it is renowned. If you want to learn more about York's history, the Jorvik Viking Centre illuminates the city's encounters with marauders from across the sea; or take a stroll down the leaning lane of old butcher's quarter the Shambles, one of the UK's best preserved medieval streets and now home to bars, eateries, and shops.

But if you haven't indulged your sweet tooth quite enough, take the Chocolate Trail and find out how if it hadn't bean for York, the UK might never have have discovered it's love for cocoa.

Chocolate on the brain? Then get those endorphins flowing and bite off a chunk of this Escape.

  • "A city of extraordinary cultural and historical wealth, [York's] medieval spider’s web of narrow streets is enclosed by a magnificent circuit of 13th-century walls."
