York is an ancient Cathedral City dating back to Roman times and today is one of the most visited cities in the UK, after London and Manchester. While it's a popular tourist destination, the city itself is compact making it easy to explore all York has to offer on foot.
York is known for its festivals, and indeed there are plenty of cultural events throughout the year, covering everything from history and music, to sport and food. The major attractions in this pretty city are the York Minster, the largest Gothic cathedral in Northern Europe, the jorvik Viking Centre where you can see a recreation of life in Viking England, and the York Dungeon, famous for its bloody and gory history. However, if you prefer something a little milder, there are plenty of charming pubs around where you can enjoy a quiet drink! However, if the Dungeon didn't scare you enough, you can try ghost tour walk which is actually a great way to see the city, even if you don't spot any spooky friends. The City boasts a wide range of museums, a newly refurbished Art Gallery and numerous theatres, music and entertainment venues both large and intimate.
As you'd expect, York is also full of shops, restaurants and pubs. The closest dining area to the McCarthy & Stone development is the adjacent Micklegate where you'll find drinking holes and restaurants to cater to all tastes. The newly refurbished Everyman Cinema on Blossom Street is a 10 minute stroll away. The best shopping is around The Shambles, an area just across the River Ouse. It's the narrowest street in all of York and where you'll find everything from high street fashion to little knick-knacks and souvenirs.
