Visiting York | From our Bed and Breakfast in North Yorkshire
Historic York lies just 45 minutes inland with it's magnificent Minster, the Jorvik Viking Heritage Centre and is one of the most fascinating cities in England to visit. A city layered with history, beauty and variety. Superbly preserved, York has witnessed more than 2000 years of vibrant history. York is a walled, riverside city where fascinating history and modern tourist attractions combine to make a cosmopolitan and sophisticated city.
Be sure to visit York Minster, the largest Gothic Cathedral in northern Europe. Let 21st century technology transport you back to Viking Age York at Jorvik or marvel at William the Conqueror's Clifford's Tower and wander through the terrifying York Dungeon.
If you love shopping then you'll love York! One of York's prettiest shopping streets, Stonegate, runs in a straight line from the Minster to the river and is known for its exclusive shops. The Shambles is a perfect medieval thoroughfare - flag stoned, incredibly narrow and lined with overhanging timber framed houses.
