Few cities in England are able to boast such an exciting mix of history and culture, and this spring break will allow plenty of time to soak up the atmosphere of York, without too many hoards of visitors. York is a medley of cobbled streets, romantic atmosphere and fantastic history that pulls you in from the moment you arrive. Visit the iconic cultural and religious building that is York Minster with its roots in the 7th century! Wander round the city walls, the most expansive medieval walls in the whole of England. Head to the National Railway Museum with its amazing vintage trains including world record holder Mallard. Take a stroll through the Shambles, Yorks medieval shopping street, with overhanging timber framed buildings from the fourteenth century. There are many other attractions including Cliffords Tower, Yorks Chocolate Story, and the Jorvik Viking Centre, all of which are within a few minutes walk of our hotel.
Please note that, in order to allow maximum flexibility to enjoy the many and varied attractions in York, admissions to Harlow Carr Garden and Castle Howard are not included in the holiday price, but will be payable locally. Your driver will provide details of these excursions.
