Unrivalled in Britain for its magical charm and beauty, this walled city on the River Ouse was the northern capital in Roman times. The Open Top Bus Tour departs from outside the station every 20 minutes and takes you all around the ancient city, including the famous medieval street, the Shambles; museums and galleries such as Castle Museum; and York Minster, a massive gothic cathedral with outstanding stained glass windows. Discover the Viking streets and people of over 1000 years ago, accurately reconstructed, on the actual site of the ‘Viking Dig', of which there are over 800 artefacts on display.
