The White Rose Rotunda
The historic walled city is much more welcoming than surrounding a city with a huge wall might suggest. Traditionally a capital of religious importance for the church of England, and a hot bed of political upheaval throughout English history, the city is somewhat less volatile than it once was, but is still a lively and thriving metropolis. The Barbican, Basement, Fibbers and the University of York Union provide ideal nightspots for those in search of the best live entertainment. The historic Grand Opera House provides a venue for a theatre and comedy productions alike, ensuring you're never far from a cultured night out.
