Holiday Apartments in York

York is one of England’s finest and most picturesque historic cities. The Romans who originally settled there called it Eboracum. To the Saxons it was known as Eoforwick. The Vikings – who came as invaders but stayed on in settlements – called it Jorvik. The more recent history of York also characterises the city – its Minster and medieval architecture, its Georgian town houses, and its wonderful Victorian railway station.

The York of today is a fashionable city that skilfully mixes its heritage and historic architecture with sophisticated designer shops, classy restaurants, bars and cafes, to attract tourists from all over the world. Visitors  discover that every part of York’s modern life is inextricably linked with its past. Even their evening entertainment includes ghost walks through the city’s shadowy snickets and ginnels to find haunted pubs – of which York has a great many.

However, being able to purchase a variety of fresh ingredients from the delicatessen throughout the city and enjoy a meal prepared yourself with a glass of prosecco is all part of the experience in holiday accommodation.
