The magnificent City of York has long been one of the most popular holiday destinations in the country. The walls surrounding the city are some of the finest and most complete in England, still retaining all four of their impressive gateways into the city. Stroll around the delightful old cobbled streets with their half-timbered houses and marvel at the Gothic masterpiece of York Minster in whose foundations lay the original layers of York’s history. The museums are excellent and there is a varied shopping area, so you’ll quickly discover why York has been labelled England’s finest historic city.

A brisk drive north, arriving in York late morning. Grab a bite to eat at any of the cafes and coffee shops before heading up to the main attraction in the city - York Minster, built in 1338, it's the largest gothic cathedral of its kind in Northern Europe and is a true feat of architecture and engineering and boasts the biggest expanse of medieval stained glass in the world. Later you can stroll the famous cobbled streets of the Shambles before checking in to our hotel in time for dinner and our 2-night stay.


Today we visit Castle Howard, one of Britain's finest stately homes and is still privately owned by the Howard family. Castle Howard has been used as a film location in numerous films and TV dramas including Brideshead Revisited and ITV's drama 'Victoria'.


A morning at leisure in York. Perhaps take a boat trip on the River Ouse, stroll down Viking streets at the Jorvik Centre, take a walk on the famous city walls, or explore one of the city's incredible museums… York simply has it all! We return home during the early evening.
