York’s historic sights

Once your interest has been piqued, it’s time to visit some of the must-visit attractions the city offers those with a holiday letting in York.

The city’s best attraction is also one of the best in the country. York Minster was built between 1230 and 1472 and is one of Europe’s largest Gothic cathedrals. It’s not difficult to find the cathedral - it is huge. Spend some time exploring the interior of the building before heading up the central tower for the best view in the city. If you have the opportunity to see one of the performances that take place in the cathedral, seize it - you won’t regret it.

Elsewhere, there are plenty of other ways to explore York’s fascinating history. At Clifford’s Tower, you can travel back more than 800 years to see what was classed as a tower fortress during medieval times. It’s named, somewhat cruelly, after Roger de Clifford II, who was hanged for treason against King Edward II in 1322. The tower also offers great views over the city and beyond.

On the same premises is York Castle Museum, an interactive museum that lets you walk through the city at various point in its history. In the museum you’ll find a recreated Victorian street, period style rooms, an exhibition about what life in prison used to be like, an exhibition on World War I, and also one on the history of toys!
