2000 years of history, in 2 miles (3.4km), in 2 hours! Being such an important city for kings and conquerors for over 2000 years, it is no wonder that York is impressively fortified. The old city wall is a marvel, with the Roman layers at the bottom and Norman layers at the top, lovingly restored by the Victorian English. You can walk all around it, taking in green manicured lawns, stately homes and daffodils, where there once lay deep moats and barricades!-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Other InformationGETTING THERE:Train: York is well connected by train to both London and Edinburgh.

Weekend Getaways from York  

London is a magnificent melting pot and an exemplary showcase art, culture and beautiful urban spaces - both contemporary and historical. England’s largest city is home to some of the world’s most magnetic Gothic architecture, and a prolific arts and theatre culture. A few must visit places in London city are the Tower of London and the Tower Bridge. Head to the Buckingham Palace and catch the changing of the Guard at 11:30am from May until the end of July. Tourists can view the Crown Jewels, and also take a mandatory picture with a guard. Most of London’s museums have free entry, so take it all in from Tate Modern to the City Museum to the National Gallery and the Historical Museum. Make a stop at the Westminster Abbey and revel in the bustling Trafalgar Square that is the heart of London. For something more intimate, take a walk down to the Borough Market that has probably the best food and produce in London. Grab yourself a Cornish pasty or a plateful of the signature fish and chips before you leave London city.
