2000 years of history
Everyone has heard of NEW York but not everyone knows of OLD York, the best preserved ancient city in England. Half a day is barely enough to see the major sites but we will do our best! A visit to the cathedral, known as York Minster is a must as it's the largest cathedral of its age in England. A walk on the ramparts, a tour of the labyrinthine old streets (shopping stops are allowed !) a visit to one of the many ancient parish churches, ruined abbeys, the Norman Clifford's Tower or one of the many museums. . it's your choice but I'll make sure you don't miss the many little curiosities hidden away in the alleys.
This tour can be extended to a Full Day in York or with an afternoon excursion to one of the nearby stately homes of Yorkshire. Please ask for a quotation.
The itinerary will be tailored to the interests and walking ability of the client. All the major sites of the city will be seen or visited.
