York, which is a halfway point between London and Edinburgh, is one of Englands most famous historical town. It is a beautiful place with appealing architecture and rich heritage which makes the destination an ideal tourist attraction. The York Minster is the most prominent attraction of the town,being the towns Icon.

A pleasant location,it offers quite many activities besides visiting. I highly recommend the place as it can offer lots of things what makes the city even better. If you want to see a typical british town, head over York, especially if you want to learn about the nations background.It is vast and dynamic.
