Situated in the Vale of York, with the river Ouse running through the heart of the city, York is perfectly situated for the Yorkshire Dales to the west, the Yorkshire Moors to the north and the many seaside towns to the east. Yet it is only two hours from the heart of London by train. With two theatres, good sporting facilities and a wide variety of interesting restaurants, it has excellent recreational facilities.
