Attractions in York

The Shambles

The narrow alley in the city center, famously known as the inspiration for Diagon Alley in the Harry Potter films, has been repurposed as a hub for selling souvenirs and antique collectibles. This vibrant space also features a variety of establishments, including restaurants, cafes, tea shops, live music venues, and painting stalls.

York Minster

The largest Gothic cathedral in England. This cathedral’s uniqueness lies in the multi-colored glass, specially the Pilgrimage Window. During World War II, the window was removed and hidden, ensuring the preservation of the entire glass structure. This remarkable cathedral has endured since the 12th century and stands as a testament to its historical significance.

Yorkshire Museum and Gardens

Another notable museum in York is dedicated to collecting ancient artifacts from the Roman and Anglo-Saxon periods. It showcases significant items, including the thousand-year-old Viking weapon, the Cawood Sword, and is complemented by 10 acres of botanical gardens.

Clifford's Tower

Part of York Castle that still stands is a solitary tower situated on a hill not far from the York Castle Museum. This tower provides panoramic views of the city, offering glimpses of landmarks such as York Minster.

Jorvik Viking Centre

Did you know that the name 'York' is derived from the word 'Jorvik,' which the Vikings used to refer to the city in the past? The Jorvik Museum is dedicated to preserving the cultural heritage and artifacts from the Viking era, offering a glimpse into life over 1,000 years ago.
