Call to Book
The walled City of York is a historic gem celebrated for its Roman, Viking and medieval heritage. At its heart stands the tremendous thirteenth century Gothic minster; truly a masterpiece of sculptured stone, functioning bell towers and stained glass windows. The City Walls form a pleasant walkway on both banks of the River Ouse while York Castle is an imposing tower, set high on a mound giving panoramic views across the cityscape. Roam the labyrinth of alleyways, take a boat trip or sip a drink by the river. Perhaps broaden your mind at one of the absorbing museums such as the National Railway Museum or the award winning Jorvik Viking Centre where you can step back a thousand years. We include guided tours of both this storybook metropolis and the spa town of Harrogate. We also explore the spectacular Yorkshire Dales calling at the hidden gems of Skipton and Grassington.
