Our York Travel Guide includes… Places to stay, things to do and how to get to York

The Roman city of York is located in the heart of Yorkshire, close to Harrogate and Knaresborough, as well as the Howardian Hills AONB and North York Moors National Park, offering plenty of picturesque scenery to enjoy.

The walled city of York is home to York Minster, a grand and imposing 13th century Gothic cathedral that is a must see. You can walk the walls of the city and enjoy walking alongside the River Ouse, as well as learning more about the Scandinavian history of the city at Jorvik Viking Centre.

Enjoy shopping at the Shambles, a wonderfully preserved medieval street lined with remarkable properties that date back to the 14th century. Those who enjoy all things spooky should head to York Dungeons for a tour with a difference.
