Why Book The Train To York?

York’s defining landmark is York Minster, the second largest gothic cathedral in Northern Europe. It sits proudly in the heart of the city and is a must see for anyone visiting this historic city. After taking in the incredible architecture, stained glass windows and features why not continue with the medieval theme by walking round the city on the medieval wall, a walk of some 3 miles but well worth doing. The Shambles is another medieval part of town a narrow street lined with shops, boutiques and tea rooms.

If you enjoy museums then York has something for everyone with the National Railway Museum taking you step by step through the birth of the railways not only in the UK but also has worldwide. Richard III Museum tells the story of the former King and with a medieval execution chamber, a working portcullis and what is said to be the worlds smallest prison cell.

A real throw back to yester year York is an historical journey full of charm and character.
