Explore York and Beyond
Whether you explore York and its historic walls streets and snickleways or visit the iconic York Minster and Castle Museum there is an abundance of attractions to keep you enthralled
Similarly you can wander around the fabulous houses run by the National Trust such as Nunnington hall and Goddards or privately owned for instance Castle Howard Newby Hall or Sledmere House situated a short drive away
Equally important if you stay for a few days not only is a visit to the East Coast with Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay but also the Yorkshire Moors and Helmsley or Goathland taking in a trip on the North York Moors Railway
In addition a trip to the West can incorporate Haworth and the Brontes or Leeds and also the royal armouries followed by Bradford and the Museum of Photography or Saltaire village designated a unesco heritage site in 2001
Closer to home there is the Yorkshire Air Museum at Elvington where you can also sneak a look at Elvington racetrack which was originally somewhere the shuttle could make an emergency landing. Just outside the City walls the National Railway Museum will keep you entertained.
Finally if you prefer a local nature walk Askham Bog, Skipwith Common and Wheldrake Ings are all close by to ramble at leisure
