    One of the most breathtakingly beautiful cities in Britain, boasting some of the most amazing architecture and surrounding countryside in the whole of Europe, and long the center of attention for both politics and cultural significance throughout its medieval heyday, York stands as a proud reminder of the medieval way of life, a testament to glory days gone by, and for some it is a look back at the way life was before the Industrial Revolution.

    One of the greatest cities in Britain for centuries, York boasts a wide variety of cultural festivals every year that have earned the city the nickname “City of Festivals”, and between its museums, its architecture, and the entire spread of 13th century walls surrounding the magnificent York Minster cathedral this city is one of the best places to go in Britain for a medieval explosion of culture and history.

    York might be small in terms of size, but it packs a lot of potency in such a little package. The festivals are probably the first thing worth mentioning outside of the architectural wonders, because there are literally dozens every year. They range from the York Festival of Food and Drink to the Viking Festival, the York Beer and Cider Festival, the York Festival of Traditional Dance, to the Mystery Plays and the St. Nicholas Fair celebrating Christmas. Beyond that, however, is the magnificence of the architecture around the city itself.

    York Minster is probably the most famous, and standing against the skyline with its massive Gothic towers represents a history that dates back to the 8th century. Then there’s Clifford’s Tower, the Jorvik Viking Center, the York Castle Museum, the Yorkshire Museum, the Eboracum Legion Bathhouse, and the legendary city walls that were built on the old Roman foundations. Keep in mind that York was founded by the Romans in 71 AD, and the history of the town is literally two thousand years old. A legend in its own right, by any person’s counting.

    The name York is derived from the Old Norse word Jórvík.
