The Area

York offers something for all walks of life and visitor backgrounds. Take a leisurely stroll around beautiful cobblestone streets, stopping off at brilliant touristy shops.


Visitors also enjoy walking around the town centre and soaking up the history, admiring great architecture, and dining in excellent restaurants.

For those interested in York's incredible past, visit the York Castle Museum, with a recreated Victorian street and workshops that displays historic objects in chronological order.


Clifford's tower is another key attraction, originally built by William the Conqueror in 1068, it's one of the only Norman features amongst a layout that was predominantly constructed by Romans and Vikings.

York Minster is the second largest Gothic cathedral in northern Europe, just outside you'll find Constantine the Great's Statue, the Roman emperor famous for how he changed Rome and Christianity.


Many tourists stop off at Jorvik Viking Centre on Coppergate, a visitor attraction with an accurately reconstructed Viking village and life-size mannequins. Hop on the ride and see how they worked and lived 1000's of years ago.

There's plenty more to see, with wonderful attractions such as York Railway Museum, York Art Museum, Grand Opera House and much more.

Take a tour of York's chocolate story, one of the highest rated attractions, where you can learn about the history of chocolate makers in York.

Who could forget to stroll down Shambles, the most famous street in York. It holds a gruesome past however, whereby butchers would toss their leftover meat into a runnel on the street. Fast forward to the present day and it is full of characterful cafes, a bakery, luxurious chocolate and antiques. It's an all-round excellent location for tourists.
