The wonderful city of York is so historically famous and present-day popular, it really requires no introduction. But, because we love talking about it so much, we’ll give it a try. York, in North Yorkshire, is surrounded by its 13th century walls, but trust us, they’re not trying to keep you out. This friendly city is a delightful place to spend a short break with friends or family. Snaptrip has deals on late availability self catering accommodation, perfect for a last minute holiday.

Staying in York
York is the king of a warm welcomes, inviting you to peruse its famous gothic cathedrals (York Minister, we’re looking at you) and its rickety, cobbled high streets for hidden goodies. In every brick and beam you’ll find a slice of York’s richly historic culture, but the history doesn’t come with a price; York still manages to be a contemporary, thriving, modern city with plenty of fun activities on offer.
