York's history has long been an attraction for tourists from all over the world. Easily navigated on foot, York contains a host of tightly packed historic attractions spanning various periods including Viking, Roman, Medieval, Georgian and Victorian. Iconic medieval York Minster is easily one of the world's most architecturally impressive cathedrals. Add to this a host of award winning art galleries and museums, York ghost tours galore, scenic riverboat trips along the River Ouse running through the heart of the historic city and some of the best shopping, chic bars and restaurant choice in the country, and you have all the ingredients of a world class city break.

York Castle Museum, Clifford's Tower and the award winning Jorvik Viking Centre form another York city centre hub of attractions. On the western edge of the city sits the National Railway Museum and great city viewpoints include Clifford's Tower (a 104 step climb) or take the challenging climb up York Minster's 275 steps. York is brimming with award-winning museums and galleries, a premier arts scene, excellent nightlife, fantastic shopping around the famous Shambles, best dining and a mix of world cuisine restaurants plus plenty of great fun family things to do.
