Ye Olde York — City With a Small-Town Feeling

Ye Olde York — City With a Small-Town Feeling, York, England (B)

Ye Olde York, this lovely medieval city full of history, friendly people who step aside or stop walking when they notice you’re taking a photo, and even apologize, if they didn’t notice to step away on time. A city full of interesting sites, car-free city centre, haunted buildings and awesome ghost stories… the list goes on and on.

Ye Olde York really is a city with a small-town feeling, and that’s what I love the most! York has a lot to offer, but we only had one day for York during our 9-day road trip in the UK. So we needed to be efficient!

I’m happy to tell you that in case you have as tight of a schedule as we did, one day is totally doable. Let’s have a little walk around Ye Olde York and find out what to do in York, shall we!

Like many other historic cities in England, York has a car-free city centre. In case your plan is to visit York just for a day, the best and easiest option is to use Park & Ride.

What does ‘park and ride’ mean? York has 6 Park & Ride services just outside the city. On Park & Ride areas, you can park your car for a very affordable fee (in 2016:£2,80 per person with 2 children under 16 years old free of charge per paying adult). ......
