York, the traditional county town of Yorkshire, has a rich heritage and history and has become a popular tourist destination for those visiting the UK. The city is part of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network, recognising it as a city of Media Arts. York is home to many attractions including York Minister and it's annual medieval costume themed pub crawl, The Assize of Ale, which is run in an effort to raise money for local charities.
The Brickworks is situated in between the city centre and the University of York, providing residents with a location that is suitable for both studying and socialising. The YoU66 and 66a buses stop nearby, and run every 5 minutes to take you to campus. Once on campus, the university has its own dedicated term-time ub1 bus that will help you get around for free.
