Holidays in York

Did you know that 140,000 people call this place home? You're certain to have met quite a few of them by the time your trip comes to an end!

It lies 13 miles away from Wetherby, and 170 miles away from London, the country's capital.

An outing to the York Maze or York Waterworld is a fantastic opportunity for some quality family time. Kids still full of energy? Keep the adventure going with a visit to the Yorkshire Lavender and Yearsley Pool.

If talking about combinations of hops and yeast is something you're into, then York more than has you covered. Test out your skills on the latest drop as you learn all about the brewing techniques they employ at the Black Sheep Brewery. Afterwards, when you're keen to trial another style, head over to theakston's Brewery.

From taking a look under the hood to witnessing what the state-of-the-art machines can do on the track, the Tockwith Motor Sports Centre has enough high-speed action to satisfy even the most motor-obsessed visitors.

Botanical experts and amateurs alike will be glad to find out about this area's rich collections of plants. For a blossom-filled day, start off with a wander around the winding paths at the Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens. Once you've finished there, pay a visit to the Goddards Garden, where the range of species alone is sure to knock your socks off. For those who are more committed, the York Museum Gardens and the Breezy Knees Gardens and Nursery also have some nice displays.

Beningbrough Hall and Garden and the Hemsley Walled Garden are the perfect places to get a little sun, indulge in a picnic or just sit and people-watch. Hull Road Park and Homestead Park are a couple more spots where you can experience a little greenery.

Start your day by watching the sun's rays twinkling on the statue-still water at Redwood Park Fishing Lakes.

Compelling exhibits are just waiting to be seen at the York Castle Museum and the Yorkshire Air Museum. They're serene places to take a break or escape a less-than-perfect day. Museum buffs also need to go to the Merchant Adventurers' Hall and the National Railway Museum.

Satisfy your inquisitive mind with an excursion to York Observatory. While there, don't forget to enquire about any temporary exhibits. Trust us when we say, you won't want to miss a single thing!

It can be both mystifying and inspiring to see just how vast and diverse the formations and creations of the natural world are. You can see them all in one convenient location at the Jorvik DIG.

Order a strong coffee — you have a big day of gallery going to look forward to. The York Art Gallery is one of the best places to begin your journey. When you're done, move on to the inviting displays of Quilt Museum and Gallery and the New School House Gallery.

Calling all history fans! You'll love learning about the rich and varied past of the region at the Yorkshire Museum and the Roman Bath Museum. The Ryedale Folk Museum and the Richard III Museum are also worth dropping by for an even greater insight into yesteryear.

Taking time to visit important historical attractions is a good way to get a better sense of bygone times. Get a taste of York's past at York Dungeon and Holy Trinity Church. Why not try Rievaulx Abbey and Fairfax House?

With its heavy walls and looming turrets, Helmsley Castle is a charming structure. Admire its exterior or simply rest your eyelids and imagine it during its heyday.

You don't need to have faith to be drawn to York Minster and St. Columba's York, United Reformed Church, two attractions well known for their cultural and spiritual value. St. Olave's Church and St. Mary's Church will also interest those looking for some quiet self-reflection.

It's better to reminisce about your life and say, "Did I really do that?," instead of, "I really wish I had done that." So, while you're in York you should also venture to some of the lesser-known sights, such as Shambles and Holgate Windmill. The York Motorsports Village and the York Racecourse are some other choices.
