UK Contour Map

York is a walled city located between London and Edinburgh, settled by Romans and Vikings and steeped in history and full of culture. The area’s rolling green landscape and villages were made famous by the Brontë sisters, James Herriot’s All Creatures Great and Small, and Downton Abbey (set in the fictional Yorkshire town of Downton). 

More About It
York offers many attractions, including the Roman Walls; Jorvik Viking Center; National Railway Museum; impressive York Minster; medieval streets like The Shambles; Fairfax House and Castle Howard; York Race Course; two national parks of Yorkshire Dales and Yorkshire Moors; and more.
Our Recommendation
We recommend The Grand Hotel York for its character and history; its building's vaults once stored millions of British Pounds used to build the railway. The vault doors are still there! The exceptional onsite Cookery School offers short 2-hour courses for those looking for a more relaxed culinary experience. Book this 5-star hotel with us to secure complimentary British breakfast and a special historic tour of the hotel.
