York defines itself as ”God‘s Own Country“. The town lies in Yorkshire, England’s largest county. York boasts a rich history. It was founded by the Romans and served as the capitol during the Middle Ages for the Kingdom of Northumbria and Jorvik. York Minster carries the same significance for the north of the country as Canterbury Cathedral does for the south. In contrast to the lively city of York, there are also the vast Yorkshire Dales.
Everyone who loves England, who has already visited the south and towns like Hastings, Brighton and Portsmouth needs to go north. Scarborough also offers accommodation. The coast is beautiful and romantic.
