Throughout the year there are many different festivals held in the city such as the York festival of food and drink, where locally produced food and wine is proudly showcased, or for fans of real ale, there's the York beer and cider festival where there are over 200 beers and 30 ciders on offer to sample.
York is also home to one of the largest Christmas markets in the country, where from the end of November right through December there are many different stalls selling crafts and gifts, along with farmer's markets selling homemade food hampers, and street vendors supplying both ready to eat foods and items packed for Christmas.
If none of the above takes your fancy, there are plenty of other walks, tours, guides and events on offer throughout the year, so book your city break in York today!
