Highlights of York

Duration
3 Days
Prices From:
US$ 594

This brief city stay is the perfect introduction to the charms and history of York. Spend a few days exploring York at your own pace, seeing its medieval landmarks like York Minster and the City Walls, before retiring each night to your premium accommodations.


This 3-day English vacation takes you to York to stay in premium accommodations and explore its history and culture.

York is one of England’s historical centres. Founded by the Romans in 71 AD, it became one of Northern England’s great medieval cities during the Middle Ages, and a train hub during the Industrial Revolution. Today, it continues to attract tourists to its picturesque old town and breathtaking landmarks like York Minster, the massive Gothic cathedral that’s one of the largest churches in all of Europe. During your time in York, you’ll stay at The Grange Hotel, a 4-star boutique ideally located a few minutes from the historic city centre. Spend your days in York exploring its medieval history. Take advantage of the Hop-On Hop-Off bus tour to jump between its many landmarks, including 13th-century York Castle, St. Mary’s Abbey, and the timber-framed The Shambles. Walk along the City Walls, pass through medieval gates (they’re called bars here), stop off at local pubs, and take in a museum or two, such as the Yorkshire Museum and the National Railway Museum. At the end of your stay, connect to the train station to continue your onward journey.

This York vacation is a great addition to a longer trip to England or the United Kingdom.
