About York

York is a historic city based in North Yorkshire. The city was founded in the Roman times and has a rich history all the way through the Middle Ages to the present day. Known for being a major railway hub and also the home of confectionery, the city earned itself the nickname the Chocolate City. Modern day York is a popular tourist destination owing to its rich history, cobbled streets, city walls and wide array of architecture on display. The city is home to the University of York and therefore is home to almost 20,000 students, which means there is a real student buzz around town.
