York is one of the UK’s most beautiful, historic and popular cities. Regularly voted one of the best places in the UK to visit, the city has so much to offer you.
It’s a great place to experience British culture and history with world-class museums, national parks just outside the city with great countryside walks, and an amazing coast just over one hour away.
We look forward to sharing our most special places with you.
Located in the heart of the UK, it is half-way between London and Edinburgh, and surrounded by beautiful countryside with the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors very close by.
York is a very safe city. In fact, it regularly gets voted as one of the safest cities in the UK.
York is home to over 2,000 shops, the world-famous Betty’s Tea Rooms, a number of very popular museums including the JORVIK Viking Centre and the National Railway Museum, and of course, The Chocolate Story, a museum dedicated to the history of chocolate in York. We’ve put together a social programme that allows you to experience all of this, and more!
