Take a trip to York

Monday 24th April 2023

Now is the perfect time to take a trip to York and experience a city unique in the world for its culture, art, history and heritage. Create your own adventure and explore attractions off the beaten track, relax in cosy cafes and pubs, dip in and out of independent boutiques, and delight your taste buds with delicious flavours from across the globe or something more quintessentially British. 

Watch as balloons fill the sky during the York Balloon Fiesta, discover art in a digital dimension at the Van Gogh Immersive Experience, see the drama unfold at the York Theatre Royal during sovereign season, and don’t miss the showcase of the Flying Scotsman at the National Railway Museum to celebrate 100 years since the most famous steam locomotive embarked on its first voyage. With THOR’S Orangery returning to deliver a hub of activity such as live music, community events and local activities from Parliament Street, and Vikings galore at the Jorvik Vikings Centre – and not forgetting York Minster, one of the world’s most magnificent cathedrals - there’s a wealth of exciting and immersive experiences to enjoy this summer. 

Find something inspiring around every corner in this beautiful city full of colour and imagination. Whether you're planning a city break with friends, a romantic getaway with a partner, a family-friendly weekend or going on a solo adventure, York has something to keep everyone entertained.
