There are regular trains to York from London, Edinburgh and Manchester.
Located just over an hour from the Yorkshire Dales, York is an ideal base for a day trip to the Yorkshire Dales National Park, by foot or by bike or visiting the stately Howard Castle. Back in the city, visitors to York can walk along the city walls’ stopping in the bars along the way – Micklegate Bar is the most important as it was once the main entrance from the south – or spend an evening learning about the city’s spooky past (it is claimed to be the most haunted city in Europe). For an alternative view of the city, take a cruise along the River Ouse.
A stay in York would not be complete without a trip (or two) to one of the city’s pubs; locals have laid claim that there are 365 within the city walls, one for every day of the year, from well-known chains to little known taverns frequented by locals. Afternoon tea complete with mini sandwiches and scones with jam and cream, is a tradition still alive and well, and you’ll find a host of tearooms throughout the city. A farmers market, selling local meats, bread, pastries and preserves, is held every third Saturday of the month.
The crowning glory of York attractions is York Minster, the largest gothic cathedral in Northern Europe with stunning stained glass windows interactive displays in its underground chambers; climb to the top for panoramic views over the city. A cultural mecca, there are over 30 museums to explore including the Yorkshire Museum and Gardens examining the city’s history and the National Railway Museum. Visitors to York can also take in the views from Clifford’s Tower, the last remnants of York Castle built by William the Conqueror.
