York

York is one of Britain''s most famous and historic walled cities; with a cosmopolitan city centre set amongst magnificent medieval architecture and heritage attractions.

The historical importance of York stretches back to Roman times, and then it became a large Viking trading centre and later one of Europe’s most important medieval cities.

The ancient medieval city architecture can been seen on almost every corner and is superbly preserved, including its iconic and imposing York Minster which is the largest Gothic cathedral in Northern Europe and is well worth a visit; its impressive architecture dominates the city''s skyline. Much more tucked away, is ''The Shambles'', one of the best-preserved medieval shopping streets in Europe; this historic gem now houses cheerful cafes and quirky boutique shops.

Another feature of this great city is the defensive medieval city walls, which can be walked and extend for over a mile around the city. Apart from its many historic buildings York has a host of first-class and world class visitor attractions including The National Railway Museum and Jorvik Viking Centre.

York manages to blend a modern cosmopolitan city and stunning ancient architecture with a thriving retail centre where high street brands sit alongside boutique and independent shops, cafes, top-class restaurants and traditional pubs. The River Ouse bisects the city and is perfect for taking leisure cruises or hiring your own boat.

There are some fantastic National Trust properties in and around York; Treasurer''s House is a beautiful mansion in the city centre, well-known for the ghosts of roman soldiers reportedly seen in the cellar. The scenic and majestic Beningbrough Hall and Gardens offers plenty for the whole family to see and do.

York holiday cottages offer the perfect base for exploring the city and its beautiful surroundings. To discover York, search York cottages today.
