This historic city in North Yorkshire was the seat of the House of York, who fought the bloody Wars of the Roses against the House of Lancaster between 1455 and 1487. York also plays a prominent role in Roman and Viking history, and visitors to the Jorvik Centre can experience what it was like to live in the tenth century Viking city.
For those interested in exploring the wider Humber region, York is the perfect starting point. It is well-connected by road and rail to cities including Doncaster, Leeds, Scarborough and Hull, and further afield to Liverpool.
