Welcome to York, a city where ancient and modern walk hand in hand; a city founded nearly 2000 years ago by the Romans but one packed with the latest attractions – indeed a city with something for everyone. York is one of Britain's most popular tourist destinations and it has also played a vital role in the history of this country.

With numerous award-winning attractions York will surprise, inspire and stimulate you. With a stunning cathedral, the world’s best railway museum, and the finest UK Viking attraction, York boasts several major attractions. However, smaller gems like medieval guildhalls, Georgian town houses, National Trust and English Heritage properties are not to be missed.


York Minster remains the jewel in York's crown and dominates the skyline of the city. It has towered over the little streets and houses of the old town for centuries and is the finest Gothic cathedral in England.

Another famous area of
York is The Shambles, possibly the most famous medieval street in the country and certainly one of the best preserved. A visitor to the city of York should not miss a stroll down this interesting and famous cobbled street.

The city of
York remains the most important city in the north of England with reminders everywhere of a great historic and cultural past. There are buildings from all periods of history, and of special interest are the old city walls with their gateways or “bars”. York has many churches, abbey's, grand houses and halls that are of great historical value and to see and enjoy all that York has to offer will take some time.

Latter day history of
York is strongly linked to the railways and the National Railway Museum is home to some grand old locomotives and rolling stock.
Moving down to the waterside, the imposing River Ouse flows through York and several pubs and inns can be found interspersed in local villages on the river banks.
