Discover York

Why visit York?

York is one of the most popular tourist destinations in England, and for good reason. Most people will have an image in their head when they imagine an English city, and that image will probably look a lot like York.

Medieval streets and quaint shops nestle within the ancient city walls, along with a castle and the imposing Minster.

Exploring the streets of York is an attraction in itself, but there are also some fantastic places to visit, such as the National Railway Museum and the JORVIK Viking Centre.

Getting to York

York is an easy place to get to by car or public transport, making it perfect for a long stay or a day trip if you’re staying elsewhere in the north of England. From our ferry port in Newcastle you can drive to York in around 1 hour 40 minutes, taking the A19 through Middlesbrough. Or there are regular trains from Newcastle station to York that take just under an hour. It’s also around half an hours drive from Leeds, or 20 minutes on the train.

What to see in York

The Minster Quarter is where the quaint cobbled streets lie in the shadow of the gothic spires of York Minster.

The Minster itself is a must-see and is just as impressive inside as it is outside. Soaring arches and ancient tombs adorn the interior, with some truly breath-taking stained-glass windows.

The National Railway Museum is a must for train fans. Inside you’ll find famous locomotives and carriages, including a collection of royal carriages used by monarchs from Queen Victoria to the current Elizabeth II.
