About York

A visit to MEDIEVAL YORK is one of the “Must Do’s” on a trip to the UK, ranking along with London, Oxford, Bath, Stratford and Edinburgh…

Mingled with narrow medieval streets and grand Georgian houses you will find evidence of the Roman, Saxon and Viking invasions… and the jewel in York’s crown – the breath-taking Gothic York Minster! A thriving city with a host of attractions, York should not be missed.

With the rugged Yorkshire Moors, the magnificent Castle Howard of ‘Brideshead Revisited’ fame and quaint harbour towns such Whitby just a bus ride away, York makes a great base for a few days, or even a few weeks.
