York is regularly voted one of the best cities to live in the UK. Our beautiful historic city is vibrant, student friendly and a great mix of heritage and contemporary and will provide you with a great experience outside the lecture theatre.
With a population of 200,000, York is big enough to feel cosmopolitan but small enough not to be overwhelming. It is a friendly place you can settle into quickly, but which still feels fresh and exciting once you get to know it well.
There is plenty to impress: the famously soaring Gothic Minster, the winding medieval streets, a diverse range of shops, galleries, clubs, cafés, museums, music groups and sports clubs means that the city really does offer something for everyone.
