What is the weather like in York?

Weather in York

Like everywhere in England, you never know quite what you’re going to get from the weather in York. At any point in the year it’s not uncommon for the weather to go from sunny to rainy and back again in a single day. Generally speaking, you can expect ice and fog during winter, damp autumns, pleasant springs, and warm summers. Of course, you’ll want to bring plenty of umbrellas and waterproof clothing to your York holiday letting just in case.

What are the top sights in York?

Top attractions: York’s historic sights

The best way to get a sense of York's unique atmosphere is to explore it at your own pace - step out of your York holiday cottage and go for a wander around the city’s historic streets. It won’t be long until you find something that draws your attention! Once your interest has been piqued, it’s time to visit some of the must-visit attractions the city offers.

The city’s most famous 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's 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 a mediaeval tower fortress. 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 points 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!

What are the best activities for families in York?

Family Attractions: Holidays in York With Kids

York is the ideal city-break destination with kids of all ages. The city is compact, and easy to get around on foot. Holiday lettings are the ideal solution when visiting York with children, and there's a wide selection available. In the oldest parts of town, stay in a quirky apartment overlooking the Minster or busy shopping streets. Modern apartments and larger houses are also available.

Probably the best place to start a visit is at Jorvik, York's famous Viking centre, completely redesigned after serious flooding in 2015. See the ancient Viking settlement under your feet, examine artefacts then sit in a motorised "time capsule" for a trip back to 10th-century city streets.

If you're visiting Jorvik, take advantage of the 'Pastport' deal, which gives access to four other York attractions too. Perhaps the best for younger kids is DIG, an archaeology experience where they can dig for Roman, Viking or Victorian artefacts. Older kids might prefer the Richard III Experience, highlighting the life of one of England's most controversial monarchs. Medieval Barley Hall is also worth a visit, with costumed guides and furnished rooms making it easy to imagine life 500 years ago.

Of course, York isn't just about history. The city is also strongly associated with chocolate, and what better way to spend the afternoon than surrounded by bars, blocks, and melted chocolate? Take a tour at York's Chocolate Story to find out how the cocoa bean is transformed into everyone's favourite treat. Kids get the chance to make their own chocolate lollipop, and you can watch the master chocolatiers at work in the kitchens. There are also an on-site café and shop – perfect for picking up some souvenirs.

What are the best events and festivals in York?

Events and festivals in York

York hosts many events throughout the year, covering a wide range of interests. With any luck, there’ll be something that appeals to you, and is located close to your York holiday letting .

Horse racing dates back many centuries in York, so it’s little wonder that the city is one of the best in the country when it comes to meets. The beautiful York Racecourse hosts meets throughout the year, and any are good to attend, but the very best is the Ebor Festival, which is held in August.

One of the best events for the whole family is the Viking Festival, which takes place each February and celebrates the city’s rich Viking past. During the week-long event kids can learn Viking combat, you can browse 10th century goods for sale, judge who has the best Viking beard, and also watch an epic re-enactment of a Viking battle!

In July, the York Early Music Festival takes place, an arts festival that focuses on music from the 1700s and earlier. It’s something a little different that can only be found in York.
