York is one of England’s most popular historic cities and is renowned for its exquisite architecture. The city is tightly packed inside ancient city walls and is easy to navigate by foot. The tangles of quaint cobbled streets at York’s heart are full of unusual shops, gourmet cafes and street entertainers, and all the buildings are Medieval, Victorian or Georgian. A visit to York really does makes you feel as though you’ve gone back in time!
York’s impressive Gothic cathedral, York Minster, dominates the skyline and there are also several castles to visit. The museums in York are world class and there are lots of hidden tourist attractions to be discovered. The River Ouse that runs through the city hosts some great boat trips and the riverside is great place to sit and watch the world go by.
