Famous for its quaint cobbled streets, historic architecture and cultural attractions, York is known for its beautiful buildings and old-town city centre. York’s unique charm, with its ancient city walls, minster and even a castle, make it one of the most visited cities in the north. If you’re an international student wanting to immerse yourself in british culture then York really is the perfect place. With many instagrammable spots across the city it’s also surrounded by countryside, nearby villages and popular tourist holiday destinations.
Our York properties are all very central, surrounded by bars, restaurants and old English pubs which sit overlooking the River Ouse. On top of this the city is great for shopping, with everything from department stores to luxury boutiques. You can even hop on the bus and head to the designer outlet where you’ll find the likes of Tommy Hilfiger and DKNY at discounted prices.
If you’d like to see the cultural side of York, the Jorvik Viking centre is a must. On a sunny day you can also head to Museum Gardens or climb to the top of the minster and take in the views of the city. Hope on a river cruise, spend a day at the racecourse, walk along the city walls or even check out the original York Dungeons.
If you’re a student then our York properties are perfectly located for a short walk to campus, plus there’s plenty of public transport right on your doorstep. Set just behind Fossgate, we really do offer a premium city centre location and you’ll be within walking distance of everything York has to offer. From dentists and GP surgeries to supermarkets and gyms, wherever you need to go you can guarantee it’s right on your doorstep.
