York City Living

The Purey Cust

The city of York has a rich and colourful history that dates right back to Roman times, and The Purey Cust site lies at the very heart of the city, close to the northwest front of the world famous Minster.

However, as well enjoying a sense of history and tradition and boasting many fine period buildings, York is also able to offer all the benefits of 21st Century living. There are numerous bars and restaurants catering for a wide variety of tastes and an extensive range of retail outlets, as well as two theatres, art galleries and museums.

The city is also well known for its fine schools, including St Peter's, The Mount and Bootham School to name but a few.

Train services via the main East Coast line afford rapid and regular services to London and Edinburgh, and the national motorway network is also conveniently accessible via the A64/A1(M). Regional airports include Leeds Bradford, Robin Hood Doncaster , Humberside and Durham Tees Valley.

Further leisure opportunities are provided by the many golf courses in the area, several sports centres, and there are regular race meetings on The Knavesmire. Further afield lie the North York Moors and the coast which are within convenient driving distance, and where walking, horse riding and other pursuits can be readily enjoyed.
