The satisfying cuisine of York
Sitting in the county of Yorkshire, York is a city and region that has given rise to many of the country's most beloved foods. These include the delicious Yorkshire pudding, a savory bake that's an essential ingredient of the famous English Sunday roast dinner. Wensleydale cheese is often cited as one of the most distinctive varieties of cheese you can find here. Often made with berries, it is simply delicious atop a cracker. Many pastries and cakes are also local specialties, such as the Yorkshire curd tart made with rosewater. York is one of the best places for a traditional pub experience, whether you want a hearty meal or maybe a pint of one of the local beers.
Getting to know the history and culture of charming York
This is one of the best cities in the country for museums and landmarks, including the iconic York Minster. This is one of the most important cathedrals of the Church of England, and has existed in some form on the site since the 7th Century. Walking along Shambles Street is another must-do experience in York, with its timber-framed houses and shops. It was traditionally a street where locals would go to the butchers' shops, and you can keep an eye out for the meat hooks still adorning some buildings. Today, you'll find a number of quaint spots to stop for some tea or buy a souvenir. Go back even further in time at the Jorvik Viking Centre, a reconstructed village that brings to life one of Britain's most iconic historical periods. The 13th c. hilltop York Castle is just another of the dazzling points of interest to check out on your trip.
Experiencing York with all the family
York is one of the best destinations in the UK for family trips. It offers a wide range of choice in terms of activities, and its calm atmosphere will suit anyone looking for a relaxing break. Take the kids to York Chocolate Story, a fascinating museum that teaches visitors how the region's chocolate is made. Plus, you'll find plenty of treats to take back home in the museum's gift shop. Alternatively, visit Barley Hall, the ultimate “olde English” experience. This reconstructed medieval town house will take you back to the days of apothecaries and nobles in Britain's history, with a rotating series of exhibitions.
Heading out at night in York
While you may not immediately associate York with wild nights out, you may be surprised by the impressive range of venues for an evening of dancing and drinking in the city. This is one of England's major cities after all, and a cluster of nightclubs can be found around the center of the city, especially City Centre West close to the River Ouse. Of course, York is also a superb place for experiencing true British pub culture. You'll find many pubs around the city center, and soon discover why they're such a popular place for the locals to come and socialize in the evening. Look out for signs advertising live music nights at the pubs, too. The York Theatre Royal dates all the way back to the 18th c., and is the center of high culture in the city, alongside the Grand Opera House.
Exploring Yorkshire on your vacation
One of the quintessentially traditional English counties, Yorkshire is superb for getting a genuine feel for rural life in the country. You'll be less than an hour's drive from the Howardian Hills and the North York Moors National Park. These splendid fields of rolling green pastures are the perfect place to escape to, and reconnect with nature during your holiday. Alternatively, frequent train services will quickly connect you with other local cities. These include Leeds, just half an hour away, and perfect for shopping and nightlife. An hour and a half away lies Manchester, one of the UK's major cities and a hub of culture in the North. This is also the home of the legendary Manchester United soccer club, and you can tour the Old Trafford stadium and National Football Museum.
