York Rugby Tours

A rugby tour for all ages. The grand old City of York is one of our favourites. 

Rugby Tours To York

Founded in 71 AD, York is located at the meeting of the Ouse and Foss rivers and became a strategic Northern stronghold, passing through the hands of the Romans, Saxons, Vikings and Normans respectively.

However, this is not just a city of history. The presence of York University means that it is a lively mix of the old and the new. There are plenty of excellent shops, bars, clubs and restaurants and weary travellers can spend their afternoon in one of the city's excellent tea rooms or coffee shops, while the evenings offer West End shows at North England prices, or some good English pub grub.
