Why take the train to York?

A picture-perfect postcard, York is a representation of ancient England in stone and cobbles with top attractions such as Jorvik, The Shambles and the excellent National Railway Museum.

This historic Roman city is perhaps the best-preserved in the country. From its Roman beginnings York has become a cultural hotspot with a cosmopolitan centre that combines its stunning heritage with contemporary events, festivals and evening entertainment.

During the industrial revolution York benefited significantly from railway building and related industries. The railway carriage works which once employed some 22,000 people are now closed. As with many historic towns, York has more than its share of spooky stories. If you arrive on one of trains to York and are feeling fearless then you can find out more on a local 'Ghost Walk'.

Since the 1950s, York's economy has benefited mainly from tourism, science and service-based industries. Experience the excitement of the races at York racecourse, relax with friends at the City Screen or enjoy a performance at the York Theatre Royal.
