York jet charter information
A city in North Yorkshire, England, York is surrounded by a defensive wall and is situated at the confluence of the rivers Ouse and Foss. Rich in history and culture, York was originally founded by the Romans and also has a Viking history. The Great Viking Army actually invaded York in 866, renaming the land Jorvik. The vikings remained there and cultivated the land before York was annexed into the kingdom of England in 954. During the age of Industrialism, York's industry was governed by the railway system. These days, York's current economy is dominated mostly by the service industry and tourism.
Things to Do in York
One of the most known attractions in Northern Europe is the York Minster, the largest Gothic cathedral north of the Alps. Open daily, the Minster’s incredible architecture includes large stone spires as well as magnificent stained glass windows. If you’re looking for a workout, climb the 275 steps up into the Minster’s steep tower to capture stunning views of York and the surrounding countryside. Learn about York’s Viking past at the Jorvik Viking Centre, an award-winning museum that features Viking exhibits dating back 1,000 years. The centre also hosts the annual Jorvik Viking Festival, a weeklong celebration of all things viking, in February. One of the main attractions is a thrilling live battle re-enactment, held at the Eye of York at the site of Clifford’s Tower, a 13th century castle. It showcases the great armies of the Viking invaders against the Anglo-Saxon defenders, complete with swords and shields. Near the tower is the York Castle Museum, which is housed in former prison buildings. Another homage to York’s past is the National Railway Museum, which tells the story of rail transport in Britain. It has the largest collection of railway objects in the world, including iconic locomotives. Head outdoors and take in the beautiful landscape at one of York's popular parks and gardens or bring the kids to the York Maze, the world's largest maze, where you can also pet farm animals and play mini golf. Yorkshire Lavender Farm and Gardens is gorgeous in bloom; find your way through the lavender maze or check out the sculpture park. Further afield but worth visiting is Yorkshire Dales National Park, located 30 miles east of York. Here you can explore more than 680 square miles of scenic dales and rustic villages.
