York is full of interesting architecture and culture and successfully manages to combine a great mix of old and new. The city is ideal for a long weekend or even a family holiday, as there is plenty to see and do. With cheap car hire from Budget you can be assured you will get the most out of your stay, however long it may be. Full of history the city is home to the largest Gothic Cathedral in Europe, York Minster and the old part of town is contained within ancient walls, where the only access is through a gateway. Within this area there are sections covering many different eras, where many of the buildings retain original features from the time they were constructed.
The Minster and the old part of the city are the primary attractions for visitors and with an abundance of places to see, both in the town and in the countryside beyond, pre booking a cheap car rental offers an economical way of seeing as much as possible. Steeped in history, York is a great place to explore a number of unique museums, such as the National Railway Museum or York Castle Museum. Another entertaining and at the same time, educational attraction, is the Jorvik Viking Centre, where you can step back in time to the age of the Vikings and learn all about their culture and how they lived.
Along with its museums, other places of interest include historical houses, halls and castles, along with several theatres, such as the Grand Opera House, York Barbican Centre or the Theatre Royal. For an adventurous day out, suitable for both children and adults, you could visit the York Maze - which claims to be the world’s largest - where you can become completely lost. Further afield is Thorpe Hill Working Farm, where you can meet lots of animals while learning about the history of farming and join in with a range of educational activities.
For sports enthusiasts there are several places to visit by car. You could try out a few of them, including renting a bike from Bob Trotter Cycle Hire, located at Giant York; spend some time at The Ice Factor, which is the city’s ice rink; or for a somewhat faster and louder day out, take a drive to the Pennine Drag Race Club. Other sporting activities available within easy reach when you hire a car are the Humberside Shooting range or York City football ground.
The climate in York is typical of the United Kingdom, with warm summers and mild winters with an average amount of rainfall.
