Discover Holidays in York

Situated just half an hour north-east of Leeds, York offers its visitors a mass of things to do, see and experience. Explore the wonderful city by boat trip, open-top bus or simply on foot; either way you’ll fall in love with York. Dominating the city’s landscape is York Minster, the largest medieval cathedral in northern Europe. As one of the greatest cathedrals in the world, it comes as no surprise that it took over 250 years to complete this magnificent structure. For a historical day trip, try the Jorvik Viking Centre; one of the most popular UK attractions outside of London. Marvel at the actual Viking-age houses complete with back yards and workshops that stood over 1000 years ago. Alternatively, if you fancy a scare-filled trip to the most haunted city in Europe, participate in one of the many ghost walks available around the centre. You could even visit the York Dungeons and witness 2000 years of York’s darkest and most gruesome history including an encounter with Guy Fawkes and Dick Turpin! If all this isn’t enough, York even boasts the fascinating National Railway Museum with over 100 locomotives dating from the early 19th century to the present day. The centre of York is made up of an abundance of shops from designer brands to unique boutiques, whatever your budget you’ll love shopping in York. Bargain hunters should head to McArthur Glen Designer Outlet just outside York where you will find up to 60% off famous brand names such as Paul Smith and Armani. Accommodation in York ranges from 5 star luxury hotels to more affordable guest houses and bed and breakfasts. York is not far from the seaside with towns such as Scarborough being only an hour away by car. York is easily accessible by car on the A64 or via good bus and rail links.
