Product Description:
The City of York; England; A First Steps Guide;

Our guides are designed for the 21st century and aim to let you enjoy the experience of your trip by giving you background to the city of York and the surrounding areas. The objective is to make sure you do not miss the main sites; We do not bombard you with too many facts as the web links mean you can get more information quickly to suit your particular needs; an individual guide you can customise to suit yourself. We live in an information age so you need a guide to be analytical not long winded.
We recreate the feel of the City of York and its charm. We also look at people who lived there and made the City famous. We cover York with its history, museums and important buildings and also the surrounding area; in our experience many of the best trips are to these places just outside. In Yorkshire this means religious sites, stately homes, gardens as well as the seaside.
As these guides use the internet we do not give detailed information on accommodation but instead links to sites where you can find it. These have many reviews and are always up to date. This is the modern way and the same applies to restaurants with a few exceptions; we always bookmark amazing places! You can find a lot of choice on Trip Advisor and nothing beats looking and choosing yourself; it's part of the fun! Likewise we all have maps on our smart phones and computers so we can access these as we wish.
First Steps guides are easy to read, informative and go the extra mile in their research to give you all you need. These guides are written to let you choose what YOU like and enjoy.
The aim is to have fun!
