Characterised by its Diagon Alley-esque streets, Gothic cathedral and ancient walls, York is the epitome of medieval charm. Perfectly wedged half-way between Edinburgh and London, it’s ideal for groups who don’t want to travel far.

On a school cultural trip to York, you can fill your itinerary with as much or as little as you like. Head to the cobbled streets of the Shambles and see the inspiration behind Harry Potter’s Diagon Alley. Tick off York Minster and walk the City Walls. Cruise down the River Ouse. And unwrap the history of chocolate at York Chocolate Story.
