Feature Locations: York City Centre

Written by on February 14, 2017

York City Centre

This week’s Feature Location does not need much of an introduction and is one of the most recognised and celebrated cities in England. The walled city of York provides a superb mix of historic attractions as well as a centre that is bustling with amenities and events.

Moving to York City Centre

Twinned with Dijon in France, York’s importance in history is shown by its importance to the Romans and Vikings who named the city as a regional capital. Since then, York has grown to become a centre for tourism, commerce and transport. In the last ten years, York has been named as the seventh most visited city by UK residents and the 13th most visited by overseas visitors. Tourism is a big factor in this, but York’s reputation for being an attractive place to eat, drink and shop has certainly added this.

Leisure & Attractions if Moving to York

In 2010, York city council applied for the entire city centre to become a UNESCO World Heritage Site which failed, but it’s easy to see why York applied. With attractions such as York Minster, Clifford’s Tower, the city walls and The Shambles to name a few, York’s historic attractions pull many tourists from the UK and overseas to the city each year.

There are also further attractions to the city such as meetings at York Racecourse which are some of the biggest in the North of England. Then York’s reputation as a drinking destination was enhanced in 2016 when a CAMRA census reinforced the city’s status as a top UK beer destination.

Jodie and Sarah were fantastic. They managed to sort out a storage unit for me straight away and even stayed after they should have shut to help me out. I would have been absolutely stuck if they hadn’t gone the extra mile.
It’s rare these days to get that level of service. MASSIVE thank you.

The staff are friendly and helpful (Huddersfield). My belonging are very safe and secure with loads of cameras and you can't enter without a person code. The storage rooms are nice and dry so all the stuff are safe from damp and mold ect.
I would definitely recommend and the price was great.
