This ancient walled city, bursting with character, may be famous for its historic sites – York Minster, Clifford’s Tower and Merchant Adventurers’ Hall, to name a few – but is perhaps less known for its shopping and restaurant life. Yet this small city packs a punch with surprises around every corner – whether it’s a coffee house hidden in the city walls, a retro tea and cake institution or a restaurant serving up south American street food, there really is something for everyone, making it perfect for families, too.
Climb aboard a time-travelling carriage at the now much-loved Jorvik Viking Centre. Anyone who has ever visited will remember the smells of the past as they travel back through time watching lifesized Viking mannequins going about their day. Looking for more of the city’s dark history? See 2,000 years of it at The York Dungeon with its special effects and masterful storytelling. And, for a gentler pace, try walking the ancient city walls or climbing up to Clifford’s Tower. Just as fun for the kids as for the adults!
