Why don't you post this under Grimsby if that's where you'll stay?

Not sure why you stay there though? Friends there? You are fairly close to York indeed but also close to Lincoln where which is a nice city (less touristy than York which is now a bit of a Disney land) but with an equally nice cathedral up on a hill.

Grimsby is a quite a distance from York. I am wondering why you have chosen to stay in Grimsby? Grimsby is a nice town - much maligned in England but quite OK. The shopping centre is mainly under one roof and is very good. Its just seems no one from overseas ever goes there.
The Lincolnshire Wolds - a small range of hills are nice and the coastline near Donna Nook is good but it gets pretty awful near Skegness. Lincolnshire is a nice county with pretty villages and small towns.
Very friendly people too.

Luckily being in Grimsby you are within easy reach of the Motorway network which spans the country. Leave Grimsby on the A180 which will take you to the M180. Head west to the M18 and head North to the M62. Head West for 15 miles and you come in easy reach, (all signposted), of York, Selby, Leeds and Wakefield. Also the new XSCAPE complex at Castleford with its indoor real snow ski slope. Conveniently it's right beside the motorway.
Have fun

Travel Tips for York

Climbing the walls

by sandysmith

Through a narrow archway on the right hand side of Bootham Bar is a flight of steep steps -climb these to reach the city walls.
Walking the walls amnd ramparts of York you get a great overview of the town, old and modern, and you come come across several of these bars too.

take a riverside walk. This is the view across the river to the back of Coney Street. The building in the picture is The Guildhall. The interior was badly damaged by an air raid, but it has been restored and some of the original work also escaped damage.

York weather.

by mwe

York is, of course, in the north of England. Tourists used to visiting southern English destinations like London will notice it's slighly colder, slightly cloudier and slightly wetter. York, however certainly has its nice weather & it can be as warm as the south when a southerly wind blows across England.
If you visit York from the London or Thames Valley areas in spring, you'll see York's about ten days behind. In Autumn, York's 'foliage' happens about 10 days before it happens down south.
On average York's 2 or 3 degrees colder in average daytime maximum temperatures compared to London, the south-east & central south of England.
Snow in winter is therfore more likely in Yorkshire than down south and there are more days in spring & autumn when you'll need the heating on & fewer days when it's warm enough to sit outside, wear shorts, or shirt-sleeves.

Spectacular Water Feature

by tpal

In the center of the formal garden in the front of Castle Howard is the Atlas Fountain. It is certainly one of the more spectacular water effects for a fountain that I have seen. It probably can't compete with the sculptural splendor of the likes of Trevi but for sheer volume and making a grand entrance this is pretty good.

The fountain itself was designed by W. A. Nesfield in 1850. The water for the fountain is completely gravity fed from a series of artificial lakes and reservoirs on the estate.

Walmgate - Bowes Morrell House

by barryg23

Home to a large immigrant population in the 19th Century, Walmgate stretches from Fossgate to Walmgate Bar, the southern medieval entrance in the city walls. The Walmgate area has a distinctly different feel to the rest of York. Most visitors head straight to Walmgate Bar, where a large portion of the city walls remain, and there is little else to see in the area, apart from Bowes Morrell House, a 14th century, black and white timbered house.
