The walled city of York in England, founded by the Romans almost two thousand years ago, is filled with historical sites and attractions. The city is safe and popular amongst tourists who walk The Shambles and visit the York Minster cathedral. Consider visiting the Ye Olde Starre Inne, which has been serving ale since 1733. While most visitors enjoy walking through the historic district within the city’s walls, you can take to the water to explore upstream. Choose from sightseeing boat rides, an evening meal on the water, or try your hand at skippering your own boat for the day. We list a variety of different options suitable for romantics and families alike.
