One of England’s most historic cities, York was founded by the Ancient Romans, and has various buildings of interest, including York Castle Museum and Jorvik Viking Centre. Those hunting for entertainment in York will find it to be a rich cultural city, particularly when it comes to theatre. The famous York Mystery plays used to be put on every year in public wagons around the city, and were revived in 1951 as part of the Festival of Britain. A young Judi Dench even starred in York Mystery performances for three years. One of the most significant venues is the Grand Opera House, which houses touring musicals, plays and entertainment from across the UK.
