Romans, Vikings, Normans and the Middle Ages have left their mark on the city of York over the years. Present-day visitors enjoy the heritage of its compact, largely traffic-free layout and a pattern of streets, alleyways walls and buildings dating back to medieval times and beyond.

An ideal place to explore on foot, this small city has so many museums, attractions, sights and streets of interests that it can almost be overwhelming on a short visit, whether for a day, a few days or longer. However long your visit, the app will help you plan for your interests.


Raymond Williams has lived in York for over thirty years. Following a career in publishing, he is now following in the footsteps of his son, an experienced travel writer.
