We think our friends at "Visit York" capture it perfectly with this, taken from their website:
"A vibrant festival city with Roman roots and a Viking past, offering an adventure for everyone.
Imagine a city with Roman roots and a Viking past, where ancient walls surround contemporary independent shops and vibrant eateries and there’s a festival for every month of the year. Welcome to York - the Original City Adventure!
Perfectly placed half-way between London and Edinburgh and with the glorious Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors and Wolds right on the doorstep, York is unlike any other English city. There’s thirty world-class museums you can explore, the best racecourse in the country and a thriving cultural scene, not forgetting, York is voted the best place to live in the UK by the Sunday Times.
So, what are you waiting for? Book your break to York and create your own adventure!"
And they don't even mention the Minster, the Shambles, Cliffords Tower, Jorvik Centre, the National Railway Museum, the River or the Chocolate! All we ask is you start your adventure by booking a stay at Minster View Holiday Apartment.
We appreciate when people visit and stay in York they can choose from many, many places - from Hotels to B&Bs and alternative Holiday let properties, so we are equally grateful and humbled when people choose Minster View Holiday Apartment.
