Welcome to LodgingGuide's hospitality industry listings for the York, England area.
Still encircled by 13th and 14th century walls with four gates, the river city of York remains central to Britain's royal history. One such Gate, Micklegate, once greeted arrivals from the south with heads of traitors prominently hoisted. To this day, itís possible to walk on the footpath of the medieval walls. York history spans a Roman York, a Saxon York, a Danish York, a Norman York, a medieval York, a Georgian York, and a Victorian York. Much of 18th-century York remains for exploration. Cruising along the River Ouse via YorkBoat is popular. Attractions include the York Castle Museum and National Railway Museum, York Minster, and countless galleries. Itís possible to travel back 1,000 years to visit the Vikings of Jorvik, exploring exactly where archaeologists found the remains of the original Viking city.
Quite alluring are medieval shopping streets of Stonegate, and of Shambles, pre-dating the Norman Conquest and once the meat-butchering center of York, where narrow streets are now lined with jewelry stores and cafes. Guided and self-guided walks in and around the city show off castles, houses, and parks. And the gruesome York Dungeon showcases Britainís bloody past, recreating such scenes as St. George being sawn in half and Guy Fawkes being tortured. Modern York, as a year-round destination, offers a vibrant cafť bar and restaurant culture plus entertainment and festivals. Shopping blends with sightseeing, especially within the heart of York. By rail, York is about two hours from London, Edinburgh and Manchester.
