Situated on the confluence of the rivers Ouse and Foss, York has witnessed an abundance of major political events throughout its two millennia of existence.
Kick off your visit on the 21st (Sat): get a taste of the local shopping with York Shambles, take an in-depth tour of York Castle Museum, then steep yourself in history at York City Walls, and finally take in the spiritual surroundings of York Minster. On the 22nd (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: explore the ancient world of Fountains Abbey, then ponder the world of politics at Guildhall, then examine the collection at York's Chocolate Story, and finally see the interesting displays at National Railway Museum.
