York, United Kingdom (England)

York, United Kingdom (England)

by Adam Goodwin | 2013


Founded by the Romans, this walled city with two rivers, is a magnificent English establishment with a plenty of heritage and culture.   The city has been around since before the Middle Ages.  With some of the grand and majestic buildings located in the city, it is not hard to understand why it is such a large attraction for the North England region.

Quick Recommendations

Some quick recommendations for places to visit and experience the history, first-hand:

  • York Minister;
  • York Castle;
  • River Ouse;
  • Stonegate; and
  • British Heart Foundation store.

This is a small list. There are many more wonderful and great things to see and do.


York is a small city by comparison to many of other European tourist hubs. As expected, the public transportation system is efficient and effective, if you decide to not stay in the immediate downtown area.
