Don't miss it. It was one of the best places in the UK that we spent time. It was both interesting and educational, a must see on any trip if you are interested in HIstory, culture, shopping, ghosts, religion, books or walled cities so much to see and do.
This was our first but definitely not be our last visit to York City. The area is immaculate, full of shops of all sizes and denominations and has some of the finest restaurants I have ever has the pleasure to Dine In.
One local public house called the "Last Drop Inn" nears the Shambles does excellent quality real Ales and very reasonable food. There are so many places to visit, York Dungeon, Jorvik Centre, York Museum etc etc we found our 3 days just didin't go far enough and will be returning early 2014 for a much longer stay. Congratulations YORK
It was a nicer city than I expected. The Shambles was a nice place to check out the souvenirs and see the local market, also the Clifford Tower was a nice castle but it was closed due to strong wind and heavy rain.
York is a friendly place. It is soaked in history, but modern as well. The many pubs and restaurants are superb, while York Minster, the River Ouse, the Roman walls and the old city are all well worth a look.
Lots to see, history and culture. York's a nice city in the North of England. Walk around the wall, go into the Minster and up the tower, visit the National Railway Museum, go on a Ghost Walk.
Shops-wise, there's lots to cater for all sorts. Visit, see for yourself what York has to offer.
This city is for anyone who is interested in history and/or architecture. Take the hop-on/hop-off bus to get an overview then walk to each of the attractions that interest you.
The city is not large but it is oozing with interesting places. If one stays longer, then there are even more places to see when going further afield. Once in the UK, it is easy to reach York by train but book ahead for lower prices. A car is not necessary transport.
I can't tell you enough because I was only there for two days. I needed much more. One thing I would recommend to any one visiting York is joining English Heritage first.
York is an acient city with lots of historical buildings. A visit to Rowntrees Chocolate Factory and the Rail Museum is a must also keep your eye out for the Fudge Shop.
A very nice old town, clean, many mediaval attractions. Recommend Bettys tea shop, not the big one at the large square, but the small one in Stone street,
The city is not big and the attractions are close to each other, sightseeing can be made on foot. The environment makes you very relaxing.
York is just a beautiful city with tons of culture. I could easily spend a week there with lots of museums and things to watch.
A beautiful cathedral and old city centre, and not to forget the british railway museum, which is a must for anyone with just a bit och technical interest. Highly recommended !
Lovely town and full of attractive things to see and visiting. The shopping street is stuff with many shops and things to buy.
Beautiful city, it has been about 10years since we were there, why did we leave it so long. So much to do.
Good place for a break: the city is compact, and there's lots to see: the Minster, the medieval walls etc.
Only downside (if you don't like that kind of thing) is the number of hen/stag parties wandering about at the weekend - but they're cheerful and friendly.
The York city is a place of leisure. A family with young children will enjoy it. Good food, good people!
