The Yorkshire region

The historic and picturesque City of York crams an awful lot into its medieval walls. It is a very compact city, much of which is pedestrianised, and most places can be easily reached on foot (which is by far the best way to explore a place). When you get tired there are always buses and taxis to fall back on.

It is almost impossible to list all the things to do in and around York, but here is a just taster - walk the city walls, take a trip on the River Ouse, explore the Minster and go to one of its choral Services, take a Ghost Walk, go horse racing at the Knavesmire........browse the excellent shops, dine in one the many cafes/restaurants/bars, picnic in the parks and gardens, visit National Trust properties like the Treasurer's House, visit a museum (e.g. National Railway Museum, Fairfax House and the Castle Museum), go to a play at one of York's two theatres, play golf in one of the area's championship golf courses (Fulford, Strensall and Ganton), or just wander aimlessly and chillax.

Central York

Local excursions include - visit a stately home like Castle Howard (famous for its part in Brideshead Revisited), take a trip to the seaside at Whitby (where Captain Cook meets Dracula) and the Yorkshire Coast, buy some antiques in Harrogate or fashion in Leeds, go hiking in the Yorkshire Dales or even the Lake District, thrill your children in the Forbidden Corner, catch a steam train in the North York Moors, feel the history at Fountains Abbey (a World Heritage Site), cycle the Route of the Tour de France (Le Grand Depart 2014).

Further afield London, Manchester and Edinburgh are only a couple of hours away by train.

York's classic Victorian train station is a few minutes walk away, it is one of the main hubs of the UK's railway network, giving access all parts of the country.The nearest international airports are Leeds/Bradford, Manchester and Teeside. Ferries to the Continent leave from Hull on the east coast.
