City of Festivals

Situated on the confluence of the rivers Ouse and Foss, York has witnessed an abundance of major political events throughout its two millennia of existence. This tourist-oriented city offers a wealth of historic attractions, as well as a variety of cultural and recreational activities. York was once the capital of the Roman province Britannia Inferior, and in the Middle Ages grew into an important wool-trading hub. Today, this relatively small urban center is one of the most popular places to visit in England, nicknamed the "City of Festivals" because of its busy calendar of cultural events. The roads within the old city center are pedestrianized, making sightseeing on foot or by bike a breeze. York is in North Yorkshire.

Where to stay in York

Despite York’s relatively small size, accommodations come in a variety of styles. You can choose from privately owned townhouses, low-cost hotels, luxurious international chains, and quiet B&Bs and guesthouses. For that ultimate urban experience, consider staying in the historical city center. This part of town is packed with options for every taste and budget, all close to York’s main attractions, as well as its main transportation systems. Just a short walk from the city center, family-run guesthouses in quiet neighborhoods offer cozy rooms and modern amenities at a fraction of the cost of the big hotel chains.
