York - the walled city
Founded by the Romans over 2,000 years ago, York is one of the oldest cities in the UK. The city’s wealth and prestige was built first on wool, and then on the railways and on industry. Today it is one of the most visited cities in the north of England and successfully intertwines the old and the new with a contemporary shopping and visitor experience whilst retaining its olde worlde feel with its city walls which can be followed on foot providing a glimpse into its past. York is a popular city for luxury and exotic car rental and we have many local suppliers offering a huge choice including, Bentley, Aston Martin and Jaguar.
