York Minster and Chapter HouseYork is a medieval town in the north east of England and, aside from London, is the number one destination for UK visitors. More than that though, York was the capital city of the country before London and is still a highly vibrant and thriving community to this day.

York is steeped in history and culture, mixing the old and the new seamlessly and making it the most desirable place to live in the north of England. York is an excellent place to commute from to most of the UK's major cities; London is a mere 1 hour and 45 minutes away by high-speed train, so that one can commute to the capital of England and live in the more peaceful medieval town of York where the cost of living is not so high.

This site has information for people visiting York, who are thinking of moving to York to stay or study at university, and people interested in the history of York.
