About York

Recently voted Britain’s 2nd Best City by national newspaper, The Telegraph, York is one of the oldest cities in Britain. It is a place of culture and history, reflected in its winding cobbled streets and beautiful architecture, such as the famous York Minster. 

At the same time, it is also a bustling and dynamic city, with a busy cafe, bar, pop culture and restaurant scene. This contrast of old and new is a big advantage for our students, offering you the best of England’s past and present in one go.
