Description

Founded by the Romans, York soon became England's Second City and has witnessed wars, peace agreements, and prosperity throughout its 2,000 years of existence. King George VI reflected on the City's central role throughout the years when he commented that: "The history of York is the history of England."

Visit the magnificent York Minster, with its priceless display of stained glass. Walk in Medieval streets or on the 800 year old Bar Walls. Visit award-winning museums or sample its excellent restaurants and shopping facilities.
