EVENTS and ACTIVITIES
York is the City of Festivals. There is always something going on and a great buzz about the place. Across Yorkshire, towns and villages put on events to involve everyone and welcome visitors.
In York, examples include the Viking Festival over the February half term, the Food and Drink Festival in Spring and Autumn, and Illuminating York as we move into darker nights at the end of October.
We also have theatre, ghost walks, regattas, racing and many more ways to keep you busy and our street theatre is excellent but incidental! Just that could keep you entertained all day.
Everyone loves York Maze, located on the road out to Elvington. This attraction provides fun for all the family.
So whether you're interested in chocolate, trains, dungeons, shopping or sport, there's something here for everyone.
