What 's new for 2016
Remember that feeling of exhilaration when you visited a place for the first time? Well, there’s always something new happening in York so that feeling never fades no matter how many times you visit…..
2016 is set to be a blockbuster of a year for York - the City of Festivals.
York boasts a year-round calendar of amazing events, starting in February with the annual Viking Festival, ranging from Early Music to Food & Drink. The return of the Flying Scotsman to the National Railway Museum and an even bigger and better Great Yorkshire Fringe comedy festival. Don’t miss the York Minster Mystery Plays returning to the Minster for the first time in 16 years. Not to mention the re-opening of the York Theatre Royal.
Plus when you’re not taking part in an activity you can explore the historic city’s cobbled streets, wealth of museums, imposing Gothic Minster and bustling markets.
