 Guided day tour from Cambridge 
 'England's Story'   
 Visit one of England's most historic cities: 2000 years of English history in one city.  
 York, the old capital of north England, is one of the most important cities in British history with the Romans, Vikings and Normans all contributing to its rich heritage. The city is famous for its walled city centre enclosing a maze of narrow medieval streets lined with numerous wood-framed buildings.  

February trips may coincide with the yearly Viking festival when the city is transformed into all things Viking. At other times the city's streets, exhibiting architecture across the ages create one of the most atmospheric urban experiences in Britain.
