Discovering York, United Kingdom
Reviews > Europe > United Kingdom > York > Discovering York
The UK's favourite city, where a weekend is never enough, when I was there a few times, I think is the most beautiful city in North Yorkshire.
If you are looking for a cultural getaway or romantic weekend break then visit York and be inspired. Renowned for its exquisite architecture, tangle of quaint cobbled streets and the iconic York Minster, York is fast developing a flourishing, cutting-edge scene. Delve into the city's vibrant café culture, take time out to enjoy some of the country's most talented street entertainers or simply watch the world go by while sipping a drink by the river.
A city of contrasts and exciting discoveries, York is a place where the old encompasses the new and the commonplace meets with the unexpected. Broaden your mind with a visit to world class museums or a variety of festivals held throughout the year catering for all ages and interests.
