York — 1 night

Situated on the confluence of the rivers Ouse and Foss, York has witnessed an abundance of major political events throughout its two millennia of existence.
Kick off your visit on the 16th (Sat): admire the landmark architecture of York Minster, then contemplate the long history of Treasurer's House, and then take in the pleasant sights at York City Walls. Keep things going the next day: get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour, examine the collection at York Castle Museum, and then see the interesting displays at National Railway Museum.

North Yorkshire is one of England’s most rural areas, yet its biggest attraction is a city. York, the county’s largest town, is an ancient urban settlement dating back to before the Roman era. The city is known for containing some of the best-preserved historical buildings and structures in Europe, and it's one of the most visited cities in England, second only to London. Virtually untouched by the effects of the Industrial Revolution, which left other regions scarred by crumbling factories and run-down mills, this county is dotted by historic stately houses and the remains of formerly wealthy abbeys. Several breezy seaside resorts line the coastline, where you can trade in the sightseeing overload of London for a more relaxing holiday. For a truly English experience, make sure your itinerary includes a few tours of the county’s villages, renowned for their well-manicured gardens and thriving production of world-class cheeses.
