The ancient city of York is the perfect city to escape to for a weekend mini-break or a day trip as part of a longer visit to Yorkshire. It’s small enough to feel like you’re living like a local after just a couple of days. The quaint streets are perfect for a wander around the beautiful boutiques before stopping for an afternoon tea break in the famous Betty’s tea rooms.
The city is steeped in history and a visit wouldn’t be complete without a walk around the medieval city walls or a visit to the magnificent York Minster where you can even climb up one of the spires if you’ve got a head for heights! On an evening there are so many great bars and restaurants to discover, from the mouth-watering fine dining food served by Tommy Banks and his team at his York outpost Roots to the more casual, relaxed street food offerings at SPARK.
