Life in York
A city like no other
York is a city that feels like a town; it's a place where you will come to feel like a local very quickly. Our independent spirit shines through in our history and architecture; everything has a story. People have been going to Betty's for tea and a fat rascal for 100 years; people have been walking down The Shambles for thousands. Despite this, we've also got the chains you know and love (just in quirky little buildings with wonky staircases). Everything in York is a little bit more interesting.
If you have a pie and a pint in a pub built in the 17th century, you'll learn about life in York from the locals hanging out at the bar. You can swing your legs by the river with a drink from The Kings Arms, a pub that floods most years yet stays open as long as it can (sometimes you might need wellies to get to the bar!) You can take a football to the Millennium Bridge or Clifton Ings for a kick around or cycle a scale model of the Solar System spread along the route of an old train line. If you prefer hanging out somewhere particularly modern, we've got cultural hubs based in redeveloped shipping containers, shrouded in a canopy of fairy lights. York is ever changing and developing. We're innovative. We'll keep you interested.
