To explore York is to explore 2000 years of history
From the ancient walls of Roman York to the Viking remains of JORVIK and the grandeur of Georgian York.

Delve into York’s heritage, discover hidden attractions off the beaten track, enjoy a vivid food and drink scene and wander in and out of contemporary independent shops.

Offering more attractions per square mile than any other destination in the UK, you’re never more than a short walk from one of York's awe inspiring offerings. Plus, the city’s varied and vibrant calendar of events and festivals means there's always something just around the corner.
