Heslington is a suburban village in the East Riding of Yorkshire, forming an outer suburb of the swollen townscape of Yorkshire's county town the City of York.

Heslington Main Street has a bank, a post office, a bakery and two pubs: The Deramore Arms and Charles XII.

The University of York's Campus West, including Heslington Hall, are located in Heslington.


Heslington appears in the Domesday Book.

Heslington Hall was built between 1565 and 1568 for Sir Thomas Eynns. In the 20th century it was owned by Richard de Yarburgh-Bateson, 6th Baron Deramore, and was used as the headquarters for the Royal Air Force's No. 4 (Bomber) Group from 1940–45. It is now the administrative headquarters for the University of York.

Heslington hoard

The hoard of 2,800 Roman coins, known as the Heslington Hoard, was found on 1 March 1966 during excavations in advance of the construction of 'College 3' on the west campus of the University of York.[1][2] [3]

Parish church

The parish church, St Paul's, is now a local ecumenical partnership between the Church of England and the Methodist Church, in which capacity it is normally just called 'Heslington Church'. The church is a Grade II listed building.[4]
