Those looking to enjoy the local sites will not be disappointed. York is home to a wide number of historical buildings and landmarks as well as archaeological sites. Amongst the picturesque buildings to peruse are York Minster, the Holy Trinity Church, and the remains of York Castle. Each of these provides a splendid glimpse into the past history of this ancient city.
The streets of the city itself seep with history. Many are cobblestoned and very narrow. A walk amidst these proves very enjoyable should the weather hold, as does a walk along the banks of the River Ouse, which passes through the city.
Outside of the urbanised area, visitors can enjoy the North York Moors, a National Park that features stunning scenery, interesting wildlife, and a calming atmosphere. The location provides a fine day trip away from the city. Many of the small towns found within have cafs and pubs to enjoy food at between walks.
As well as providing access to the Great Outdoors, York can be found within 21 miles of Leeds. Those looking for further city treats might want to visit the city and its expansive range of shops and restaurants and its vibrant nightlife. Afterwards, a stay at the Elmbank Hotel York will seem even more relaxed.
