About York

York is amongst Europe's most exciting and cosmopolitan cities with something on offer for all. Whether you choose to stroll the medieval streets surrounded by centuries of fascinating history, or relax in one of the many stylish cafes and restaurants, you will surely not forget your stay in York.

Shopping is also a treat in the city! Most of the top high street names can be found, along with many individual fashion boutiques offering something a little bit different, or superb bargains.

For the inquisitive visitor there are many remarkable and inspiring attractions such as Western Europe's largest medieval cathedral, York Minster; York Races, arguably Northern England's leading race venue; The National Railway Museum; Jorvik Viking Centre; Guided Tours or perhaps an evening at the theatre or cinema (including the newly refurbished Reel Cinema, formerly the Odeon) and much more!!

A short drive takes you to the beautiful Yorkshire Dales and Moors, 'Emmerdale' and 'Heartbeat' Country, or to historic Abbeys and Country Houses including Castle Howard, Harewood House and Fountains Abbey. The Spa town of Harrogate and the delights of the East Cost are all within easy reach.

For the lively and energetic, York is packed with bustling bars, pubs and nightclubs open into the early hours. 

York -  the city with something for everyone!!
