Newest Review: ... is the most famous site in York. The cathedral is certainly an imposing building and a very popular tourist attraction. The is evidence to show that there has been a church on the site since at least 627. If you are planning a visit I suggest you arrive early as the queues can be very long! I have visited several times in the past but have to admit that the £10 entrance fee has put me off ... more

I am not really a city person, but there are cities I love, one of these being York. As far as I am concerned York is one of the finest cities in the world and definitely worth a visit! Getting there. ************ York is situated in North Yorkshire on the Rivers Ouse and Foss. It can be reached by train and has a station conveniently placed near the city centre. I travel from Newcastle station and it's just over an hour away. If you prefer to drive then I suggest you consider the very efficient park and ride system that operates from5 sites around the city. Parking is free and an adult fare is £2.60 with children under 16 ... Read the complete review

Having lived in York for 5 months I think I'm just about qualified enough to give a little information to my fellow dooyooers. I was born in York at the city has always been a favourite of mine, even before I started living here I have stayed here quite a few times with family and my partner. *pubs* One of the key points that most people like about York is that there are 365 pubs so your never short of finding somewhere to stop off an have a drink and even better if you live here it lets you set yourself a challege of a different pub every night. Some notable pubs are; * The Golden Fleece - supposedly one of the most haunted pubs in ... Read the complete review

Now, over the years I've spent many a happy time in the grand old and glorious city of York. Easily accessible on the East Coast Mainline that runs from London to Edinburgh or by road from the A1, within easy reach of the cities of Newcastle and Leeds, Yorkshire's finest tourist destination offers great variety and is bursting with charm and character. From those fondest early childhood memories of scampering around the olde worlde everyday exhibits in the never ending Castle Museum, to discovering my Viking roots rampaging along the city walls. No question, York is my kind of town! ~~~~All Aboard!~~~~ Let's start this whistle ... Read the complete review

York is a walled city situated in North Yorkshire, England and lies on the rivers Ouse and Foss. Being in existence since before 100AD, the city has a wealth of history and this is easily visible when visiting the city. Mum & I had decided to have a "Mother & Daughter" 3 day trip somewhere this summer and in the end we decided on a trip to York. I'd been there once before on a day trip and Mum had been a couple of times, so we thought it would be nice to spend a few days there doing touristy things and having a general wander round. It was Mum's job to book the train tickets (which turned out to be roughly £45 each for a return ... Read the complete review

I have been to York a few times, I think I went when I was young, but I don't remember that!! I then went at around 15 with my mum and dad and little brother, and then I went again last year for my honeymoon. When I first went (or the first time I remember going!), we stayed in a kind of travel lodge, I think it was at a Sizzler pub if I am remembering rightly, and we used the Park and Ride sytem which York has in place, this is where you park your car and pay around £3, and then you get a buss pass which allows you to travel around the city by bus...this is because if you have ever tried finding parking in York.....you can't!!! As we were staying ... Read the complete review
