By the time that this post goes live I should hopefully be tucking into a train picnic whilst speeding northwards out of London for a weekend in York.
I’ve been invited to York for a weekend for a city break by Visit York so that I can experience the city and discover its hidden gems for myself. I’ll have access to a York Pass which offers free entry to over 30 York attractions and tours as well as restaurant and shopping offers, so we certainly won’t be short of things to do and see over the course of the weekend.
Coming third in a list of ‘Britain’s 20 Best Cities’, as voted for by readers in the Telegraph Travel Awards 2016, I’m really excited to spend a weekend in York.
The team at Visit York have put together a stunning video which gives just a small glimpse at the beauty of the city and shows why York is the original city adventure:
You can follow along with my adventure this weekend on my various social media channels. I’ll be posting to Instagram and Twitter, all with the hashtag #OriginalCityAdventure. And of course, if you can’t get enough of York, make sure you follow @visitYork on Twitter.
