York is one of the UK’s favorite cities: a beautiful historical center that is both a destination in its own right and an excellent base for touring the delights of the surrounding region. As well as York itself, there are – to name but a few – Harrogate, Beverley, Ripon, Castle Howard, the Leeds & Liverpool Canal, castles, abbeys and many picturesque villages, all just a short drive or bus ride away. Whether you fancy the grandeur of a stately home, castle or cathedral, the atmospheric site of a bloody battle, or a peaceful riverside amble, there really is something in this book for you. And while you enjoy the walk, stand to admire the views and relax in one of the many cafes en route, nuggets of historical information are provided to add interest and variety. The routes in Historic Walks in and around York are all short and manageable, ideal for all ages and abilities, with enough variety and interest to satisfy everyone. In short, this lovely book really is all you need to have a grand day out all year round.
