Attractions

York has a multitude of architectural attractions. Wherever you go in York you will find evidence of its history.

York Minster (the present one is the fourth on the site) is the largest Medieval structure in the United Kingdom. It attracts visitors from all over the world. The city walls still remain and encircle old York, almost three miles round. Micklegate Bar was traditionally the Monarch’s entrance, where traitors’ heads were displayed.

Go for a stroll in the Museum Gardens, or visit the Art Gallery in Exhibition Square. Why not take a river boat ride or sample a traditional English afternoon tea at Betty’s Tea Rooms.

York is an ideal base to explore the many attractions of Yorkshire including: The National Railway Museum, the Dales, Castle Howard, or The Royal Armouries in Leeds.

The coast is only a short distance away. Visit Whitby – famous for Captain Cook, Scarborough – Yorkshire’s premier seaside resort, or the beautiful Bempton/ Flamborough coastline.
