In this family room (can accommodate up to 5 people) you are allowed to try your own alchemy formulas. All the Gold you manage to create you may take it home with you. You’ll be charged only for the room. Some potions displayed are alive and they will try to tempt you with a sip! Please do not listen to them, keep them locked in their cupboards and especially do not touch them! You may use all the potions you’ll find in your bathroom for a dream flavoured and relaxing bath. Enjoy the skyline of Shambles neighbourhood  from your window and the colours of the sunset casting down on the roofs of York- the City that never sleeps.
