Welcome to Out About York!

We are York residents who love to get out and about to explore the magical city of York in the search for delicious food, hidden gems and anything and anywhere that makes life that little bit more special.

York is a great place to live and we want to help people enjoy it more by sharing tips, advice and experiences of great things to do in York and encouraging the wider York community to do the same.

Sometimes living in a busy tourist city can mean you avoid taking part in what’s right on your doorstep. We want to help York residents get back out there and enjoy York.

Out About York shares informal reviews, news and articles exploring anything and everything about York.

We welcome all feedback, recommendations, submissions and questions. Please contact us to join in with Out About York and help improve the site. We’d love to hear from you.

Thanks for visiting!
