    Today we enjoy a magical visit to the cathedral city of York. Step back into the Middle Ages by visiting the ‘Shambles,’ with its overhanging timber-framed houses, traditional shops and cobbled pathways. Exploring the Christmas market is a must at this time of year; treat yourself to a mulled wine in the alpine bar; find a thoughtful gift in one of the wooden stalls; and soak up the enchanting atmosphere as you wander the illuminated streets. Whilst here, be sure to take in the magnificent York Minster – one of the largest cathedrals in Northern Europe.

    We return back to the hotel in time for our Christmas dinner, complete with a complimentary glass of wine.
