Have you been to York? It’s in the north of England, and it’s a great place for a visit. It’s a small city, it’s easy to get around – and it’s easy to get there by train. York is famous for history, and it’s also a good shopping destination.
If you’re planning a visit, start at the official tourist website and look at the ‘Must See Attractions’. Next, you’ll need accommodation – again the official Visit York website can help – with hotels, Bed and Breakfasts and cheaper hostels.
A brilliant free attraction is the Railway Museum – over a million objects and three hundred years of history – including trains from the past like the Mallard, and right up to date a Japanese bullet train, a Shinkansen!
One of York’s most famous attractions is the Jorvik Viking Centre, which tells the story of Viking York around 1,000 years ago. Part of your visit includes a ride where you travel through a Viking village where you can smell the smells of the time!
