York is unlike any other English city. It’s perfectly placed half way between London and Edinburgh, and not to mention the glorious Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors right on the doorstep. 

Ancient walls linked to its Roman roots and Viking past surround the city’s contemporary independent shops and vibrant eateries, offering something for everyone.

With more attractions per square mile than any other UK city, you’ll be spoilt for choice with fun things to do. Visit the spectacular York Minster, marvel at masterpieces at York Art Gallery, discover the original Viking encounter at JORVIK Viking Centre or be spooked at the York Dungeon. 

In 2018 the city was voted the best place to live in the UK by the Sunday Times, described by the newspaper as a “mini-metropolis with cool cafes, destination restaurants, innovative companies – plus the fastest internet in Britain”.
