Reasons to visit York

Nearly two thousand years ago, a Roman legion marching north through England built a fort where two rivers met. Eight centuries later, the Vikings invaded. Every era has left traces in York; besides cobbled alleys, Victorian tearooms, haunted pubs and the unmissable Medieval Minster, there are cutting-edge art galleries, revamped chocolate factories and interactive ride-through museums. Here are the top reasons to visit.
