York Travel Guide
The City’s most famous landmark is York Minster,
Europe’s largest medieval cathedral, which many consider to be one of the
world’s most exciting buildings. The church is the seat of the Archbishop York
only second in importance to the Archbishop of Canterbury. York is also one of
the few European cities that boast a wall
and those wishing to walk along them can do so via the steps by Bootham Bar.
More recent historic events can be explored at the Railway Museum, which
contains one of the finest collections of rolling stock, and exhibits in the
world. For a real fun family day out which is as educational as it is unusual
nothing beats Jorvik Viking
Centre a reconstruction of 10th century Viking York
complete with smells and sounds.
For quality evening entertainment York has a wide choice of venues ranging from the Grand Opera House,
Theatre Royal and Barbican Centre for larger
scale productions both traditional and modern, to Fibbers, The Blues Bar and Golden Fleece for everything
from Blues and Jazz to Rock and Folk. As you would imagine from one of the UK’s
premier cities dining out is truly cosmopolitan with a huge range of restaurants,
cafes and fast food outlets serving food to serve all tastes and budgets. York
is a rare place where you truly feel like you have travelled back in time;
charming, fascinating and friendly in equal measures this really is the ideal
place family style city break.
