The de facto capital of northern England, the glorious city of York has burgeoned in recent years: top-quality museums exploring the city’s weighty history are getting better and better, the restaurant scene is fast developing and quirky and independent boutique shops and hotels are popping up all the time. Add to this the city’s sublime backdrop of medieval streets lined with timbered houses, the magnificent, cream-coloured Minster and an impressive riverbank lined with cafés and pubs and you have the ultimate UK destination. There’s so much to do, however, that a weekend here will barely scratch the surface – best make it a week’s holiday, then!
