Things To Do


The City of York

The jewel in North Yorkshire’s crown, we love York and think it is one of the best visitor destinations in England. It’s been voted Best UK City* and York is still a favourite amongst even the most seasoned of travellers. This ancient walled city has been the north’s spiritual capital for 2000 years, but that’s not say it is stuck in the past; York’s affluent young student population and its influx of tourist pounds has helped to create a cultural and commercial oasis. History seeps out of every cobbled street, but the crooked old buildings house a fantastic range of designer shops, cafes, restaurants and bars. Make sure you take in the York Minster, The Shambles and Betty’s Tea-rooms.
