Activities/Attractions: York, the county town of North Yorkshire in north central England, is located about 300 km (190 mi) north of London at the confluence of the Foss and Ouse rivers. York has a district population of 120,000 and is a railroad center and market for the area's farm produce and livestock.

York's history can be traced back nearly 2,000 years to AD71 when the Romans founded Eboracum, which, by the 4th century, was the capital of lower Britain. The Roman Emperor, Constantine, was acclaimed Emperor in the city of York.

Today, it is the preservation of its long and varied history which has brought York world fame. Here, visitors not only hear about England's history, they can actually see it and walk in it. Some of the major attractions include:

  • York Minster
  • The National Railway Museum, European Museum of the Year in 2001
  • York Racecourse, known as "the Ascot of the North" and voted best racecourse in Europe
  • Jorvik Viking Centre

Standing in a quiet cul-de-sac overlooking a bowling green, we are only 6 minutes walk, through the Museum Gardens, to the famous Minster and the City Centre. We are only 10 minutes walk or a short taxi ride from the railway station with its excellent rail links to the rest of England. The countryside around York - within an hour's drive in any direction - is some of the most beautiful and striking in Europe.

"We enjoyed our stay here. The room was very comfortable and clean, as was the bathroom down the hall. The room had a sink and hair dryer and a TV as well as coffee and tea. The breakfast was ample and delicious, the dining area and dishes were lovely, and the owner Elizabeth was friendly and helpful. It was a pretty easy walk from the train station and to the center of town, and it's a nice walk because you walk through a lovely park. The Sycamore is at the end of a very quiet street, so there was essentially no noise. We enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to anyone going to York!"
