York's tourist industry

This report has been provided by the Economic Development Unit of the City of York Council




The City of York is one of England's most historic cities - with a history dating back almost 2000 years to AD71 when the Romans founded Eboracum. Successive Anglo-Saxon, Viking and Norman invasions added to the city's colourful history.

There is visible, physical evidence - in buildings, monuments and even street-names - of all periods of English and European history in a few square miles within the walled city of York.

Located at the confluence of the rivers Ouse and Foss, the city centre is encapsulated within an almost complete medieval wall, with a street pattern developed from Roman, Viking and medieval times.

The city is dominated by York Minster, the largest Gothic cathedral in Northern Europe, and offers a range of other attractions that bring some 4 million visitors to the city from all over the world each year.
