See York Minster
If you’re a lover of architecture and adore cathedrals, you’ll love this place. The central tower boasts magnificent views, and the Minster provides an indescribable atmosphere.
This old mediaeval street has unique architecture, like the timber framing on each building. The Shambles was previously used as a slaughterhouse and butchery.
Visit Clifford’s Tower
The tower has been rather versatile in the past. William the Conqueror built the castle, but it was also used for more sinister matters.
Go on an Ouse Cruise
An Ouse cruise allows you to view the world of historical York from a whole new perspective.
Have Afternoon Tea
If you prefer something extra English, try a cup of your favourite tea on the afternoon tea cruise.
In the house, you can listen to talks as your marvel at the stunning interior designs. Outside in the gardens, you and the family can check out the walled or woodland garden as well as various temples and monuments.
Follow the York City Trails
These are England’s longest town walls and display the beautiful construction techniques used in the 13th century.
Jorvik Viking Centre
On your trip throughout the Viking Centre, you’ll learn about the lifestyle of the Vikings. This includes who they were, what they ate, flora and fauna from that early mediaeval period, and plenty more.
