New year, new accolade.
As everyone’s thoughts turn to holidays, one national magazine has published its lists of 19 of the best places to visit in the UK – and York is number one.
Complemented by a picture of Shambles, the magazine says:
Picture-perfect from practically every angle, York is what you’d envisage when you think of a postcard English city.
Surrounded by medieval walls, but with modern touches from shops and restaurants, York is the perfect mixture of history and contemporary sights – plus the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors are nearby.
It is the latest in a long line of accolades for York.
The city was named ‘the best place to live’ in 2018 in the Sunday Times.
