Yorkshire is England’s largest county and offers a wealth of culture and history; from the ancient Roman city of York to the peaceful and picturesque towns of the Yorkshire Dales.
The city of York is located on the banks of the River Ouse and displays the most complete example of medieval city walls still standing today. The city remains one of the UKs most popular heritage cities and is renowned for its Roman, Viking and Medieval heritage with lots of attractions for visitors to enjoy. Its historical centrepieces are without doubt Cliffords Tower and York Minster, the largest Gothic Cathedral in northern Europe.
Our base is the three-star Holiday Inn York sitting on the edge of York next to the racecourse. The hotel has 146 ensuite bedrooms with air-con, tea/coffee
making facilities, direct dial telephone, hairdryer and WiFi.
We leave Belfast on the early sailing to Cairnryan. We travel directly to York arriving in late afternoon.
