York Travel Guide

York Travel Guide, York, England (B)

York is a historic city in the north of England; famous for its city walls, its giant cathedral, Guy Fawkes, and beer. The latter is a good reason to visit any city, especially one with such a rich history, and so we ventured north for a weekend of ancient stone, religious hymns, pubs and…..well, beer.

Virgin trains release cheap advance tickets to York on a weekly basis, which is something you will want to take advantage of if you plan to visit. A weekend train fare can set you back £75 return per person if you’re not careful. Thankfully we are very careful, booked tickets as soon as they were released in advance, and paid £34.20 return each. We left Kings Cross early Saturday morning and returned late Sunday afternoon, the trip itself is a comfortable two hour journey from London.

The brave and/or budget minded can get a bus from around £28 return from London, the journey will take 5.5 hours depending on traffic and road conditions, and is as comfortable as riding in a cramped, noisy, smelly old sock.
