What 's new for 2017
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…..
2017 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. An even bigger and better Great Yorkshire Fringe comedy festival.
The year of the Viking - will see not only the re-opening of JORVIK Viking Centre in April but also the new Viking exhibition open in May at Yorkshire Museum.
For those with a sweet tooth - we'll be celebrating the 250th anniversary of Terry's in York - in the home of chocolate.
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.
