Any visitor to the county of Yorkshire will probably be aware of the historic city of York, which has huge cultural significance across the whole of Europe. York has an ancient past stretching back to Roman times and the city has managed to retain its magnificent architecture through the ages from this time, when it has variously been a major settlement for the Vikings and a focal point in medieval Britain. Dominating the city is York Minster which is Europe's largest Gothic cathedral and miles of city walls which go back to the 13th century. York today is a great mix of historical buildings, impressive architecture and a modern vibrant city with superb shops, cafes, restaurants and visitor attractions. To the south and east of York lies the Yorkshire Wolds; an area of gentle rolling hills, picturesque villages and busy market towns, making just the perfect place for relaxed breaks, easy walking, great cycling routes and plenty of sightseeing at historic stately homes.
