Favorite thing: If you really want to get into the history of York then you should do the York Heritage Trail. If you have the time, it is very easy to just get around the town by foot and do the four walks which the town is divided into. There is the administrative and commercial development, old Blandstown, the industry, schools and churches and the highlights of the domestic architecture.
The tourist information bureau is in the York Town Hall. They have various brochures on the town and surrounding areas as well as maps and historical information. There is also a gift and souvenir shop of course. The staff are very helpful although I found their online information service lacking a response.
They are open daily from 9.00am – 5.00pm.
