Car hire in York and beyond
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.
Full of history the city is home to York Minster, the largest Gothic Cathedral in Europe, 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 hire car 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 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 and 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.
Away from the city there are plenty of places to go for a day out to take advantage of our cheap rates. Take a trip to the coast by heading off for a drive to Whitby and the Captain Cook Memorial Museum.
There are a number of different places you could visit for the day, including Harrogate or Hull, which are both within easy travelling distance and have plenty of attractions to enjoy.
Another place to go to visit when you are in the region is Leeds, which is located southwest of York. There is much to see and do, including shopping or spending the day visiting one of the many attractions unique to the area.
Closer to the centre of York is the Yorkshire Air Museum, which makes for a great family day out exploring the many displays of old planes from as far back as the Second World War.
