Has York ever looked as colourful?

Bloom! York

With floral displays sprouting across the city, the first ever Bloom! Festival has transformed the streets into a kaleidoscope of flowers, fruit, veg and general leafy goodness.

The event marks the 250th birthday of the Ancient Society of York Florists – the oldest group of its kind in the world.
