Take a journey to York, a city rich in Roman and Viking history in North Yorkshire. Explore the city surrounded by ancient walls – gaze at the magnificent York Minster, the cathedral of York built in 1472, or get lost in the largest maze in the UK, the York Maze. You won’t be short of things to do and see as York has more attractions per square mile than any other city in the UK. Explore the city's many contemporary independent shops or visit the York Designer Outlet. Each year the York Christmas market takes up most of the city – and it’s a Christmas market well worth visiting. No visit to this Yorkshire city is complete without a trip to the famous café tea rooms, Bettys York. With a world-class university, the University of York, the city has a population of 200,000 and it’s still small enough to explore on a short city break.
York is approximately 327 miles away from London. It takes less than two hours to get there from London by train or around 4 hours by car. If you are driving, you can leave your car at the park and ride just outside the city centre for free and complete your journey into the centre by bus.
