The City of York


The capital city of this great county (God’s own county no less). It’s situated 22 miles from Spring Cottage. You can drive there or take the train from Malton.

York’s skyline is dominated by York Minster which in turn is surround by cobbled streets and narrow lanes. Today most of these are boutiques and cafes.  You’ll find plenty of museums here too, including The Jorvik Centre and The Castle Museum.

The city is surrounded by a medieval wall with gateways such as Micklegate giving access into the medieval city centre.
