The City Centre
York is unlike any other city in the UK. Its maze of cobbled streets and historic monuments make it feel like a true version of Diagon Alley in Harry Potter. Steeped in antiquity, the city walls surround the clubs, cafes and bars that nestle within. Couple this with the river Ouse and the museum gardens and there really is something to appeal to every lifestyle.
York has never lost its Olde worlde feel, from shopping for freshly baked bread on the Shambles, to the cosmopolitan restaurants of Lendal Bridge; York truly has something for everyone, and surprisingly has even been voted as one of the most affordable cities to live in.
The people of York exude the Yorkshire charm and friendliness, whilst being proud of their heritage and history they welcome the tourists who come every year to the Jorvik Viking Centre, the Castle Museum and the infamous Railway museum.Proud of their attractions many local residents regularly visit these hotspots for the many events that take place.
Now sporting the York eye, this fabulous city can be seen in all its glory from high above, with an impressive university and a street (Whipmawhopmagate) that is shorter than its own name; this is a wonderful place to live.
York is just fifteen miles away from the bustling city of Leeds, whilst the A64 provides easy access to North Yorkshires unspoilt coastline.
