In Focus: York

November 2016


Nowhere up North is quite as medieval as York. It’s an extraordinary city full of culture and history and it hasn’t lost its charm.

A marvellous circuit of 13th century walls enclose an impressive web of narrow streets and at the heart of the city you will find the breath-taking York Minster, on of the most beautiful Gothic cathedrals in the world.
Why on earth wouldn’t you want to call this place home?

Obviously with such a prestigious city comes a not so pretty price tag, but you can get Help to Buy on properties up to £600,000, so we’ve got you covered.
We’ve had a look at some of the new housing developments in the area, so you don’t have to!
