Getting to York?

by dylanmendes

Hello there..

I am looking to do a 4 day trip through the English countryside. My first stop was to get to York and I'm finding that though it's only a 2-hour train ride away, it's fairly expensive. The coach rides are not that cheap and 5 hours is a long time to be stuck in a coach!

Could someone please inform me what's the cheapest way to travel in the countryside? Specifically what's the cheapest way to get to York and what's the approximate cost?

Thanks in advance,
Dylan

York is a 2-hour train ride away from where? Are you talking about London?
Generally the coaches are cheaper than the trains, but need more time.Train ticket are cheaper when you book in advance.
If you're not living in the UK, you can get a train pass or reduced point-to-point tickets from BritRail. They have to be bought outside the UK.

Indeed. National Express coaches are the cheapest but yes, they take a lot of time compared to the train. Once you are IN York, there are lots of cheap ways to get around the countryside.

Travel Tips for York

York Tip

by Mengke

A travelling friend and I headed to York one weekend and we accidently hit upon their Viking festival. Eventually we found dorm accomadation in with two Canadian students, the youth hostel was full, and we hadn't thought it'd be a busy time of year.

It was dark and cold. My friend had never seen snow. It snowed and we walked around town with our mouth wide open, catching the snow! Walking down to the river we caught the fireworks and the viking burial, a small longboat blazing on the river, it's reflection lighting up the sky. The atmosphere was wonderful with Enya playing over loudspeakers, people rugged up against the cold and our breath made visible on the air.

The festival is held on a weekend in February and is well worth seeing. But book accomodation ahead of time!

Cliffords Tower

by CandS

We climbed to the top of Cliffords Tower for a great view of the city of York... We could see the extent of the floods from up there too which was interesting... The kids were having a great time playing in the water on the streets...it was fun to watch them for a while. :)

Police on bikes.

by leics

Because York still has its Medieval street pattern, it's difficult for emergency vehicles to get through the crowded areas quickly. so there are police on mountain bikes, and paramedics too. They are exceptionally speedy...... the one in the picture was pedalling hell-for-leather back into town so we only caught the back of him as he whizzed by.

Watch the night sky through a telescope!!!

by aadil

Well this is not exactly off the beaten path but it fits in appropriately as far as the settings are concerned!!! The York Astronomical Society has it's observatory with a few very good telescopes a little outside the main city of York for members of the society and guests too for a night of astronomical observations using their Meade 125mm refractor telescope (and others too). The picture includes the Chairman Martin Dawson and Martin Whipp who is the editor of Algol - their monthly newsletter!!! Also in the picture is David and Debbie Brigham and a couple of other amateur astronomers including me!!!

Jorvik Viking Center Deep...

by photobf

Jorvik Viking Center Deep beneath the pavement of Modern York, archeologists have uncovered what Viking life was really like. Now you too can journey back 1,000 years to experience Jorvik, its atmosphere, sounds and smells. I was absolutely fascinated by this place...It started out like a bad amusement ride, but it just got better from there. It drew me in, and at the end, there is a show room of Viking skeletons that had various war wounds. They had many artifacts and things to look at. Well worth the visit, I think...
