York is a historic walled city – the longest and best preserved in England – in North Yorkshire, full of cafes, pubs and cheap bites to eat. The perfect getaway to immerse yourself in history and gothic buildings during the day and cheering pubs at night. You will find old roman landmarks still almost intact, enchanting medieval ruins, museums like the Jorvik Centre, a fascinating museum bringing the city’s Viking heritage to life.
Hostels in York are more about the quality than the quantity. You will find hostel chains, boutique hostels and more independent ones, all with one shared purpose: to make your stay in York unforgettable. Some York hostels are more about design and the boutique interior, others about the atmosphere, the people and the activities. They are all in the city centre, with modern facilities, Wi-Fi and options for breakfast to start your day exploring the city fully charged and ready!
As all hostels are in the centre, you only need to step out of the door to be in the heart of the city. York city centre is where you can expect to find traditional English pubs (it’s famous for them!), cobbled streets and centuries-worth of historic architecture. For a different vibe, check out York’s Latin Quarter, where the bars are open till late, the music is good and you’ll see lots of al fresco diners in summer – did someone say tapas? Travellers interested in history flock to the Minster Quarter to view the city’s 800-year-old cathedral.
While in York, make sure you visit York Minster, its cathedral, and get lost in the Medieval streets surrounding it. The ancient walls of the city centre are over 700 years old! You should also check out Clifford’s Tower for another amazing view over the city. Take a walk down The Shambles, one of the most iconic streets in York with a quirky mismatch of buildings. You’ll also find a local market there 7 days a week. When you’re done with your adventures, start a fun night out in one of York’s famous pubs – there’s 365, so you could visit one every day for a year!
York has a strong medieval heritage and a little bit of more than 200.000 people today living there, meaning you won’t have any issues walking around to visit its main landmarks, cafes and pubs! Despite the absence of an underground system, the city has a very good network of bus lines all leading to the central station in the city centre.
