York keeps visitors wrapped up this winter

By | Category: Travel news

Visitors to York this winter, will be able to enjoy a cosy night out at bars and restaurants around the city. Inspired by the outdoor-living café culture in Northern European cities, the new ‘York Wrapped Up’ evenings will encourage patrons to relax outside, while staying warm under specially created Visit York branded blankets.

Today marks the start of late night shopping evenings in York, when visitors will flock to the city to stock up on gifts for the festive season. Tapping into the demand for outdoor dining, made all the more popular in recent years in colder cities like Copenhagen and Oslo, the blankets initiative will encourage visitors to embrace an alfresco lifestyle during the pre-Christmas period.

With cosy red blankets being issued to selected bars and outdoor cafes across the city, Visit York hopes that the opportunity to sit outside in relative warmth during the cold winter months, combined with the city’s appeal as a renowned shopping destination, will be more than enough to get travellers to take a second look at this beautiful British city and get ‘wrapped-up’ in York this winter.

Determined to outshine other European city break destinations, such as Paris, Milan, and Berlin, the city is aiming to entice visitors from London, the South East, the Midlands and Scotland to look at York as the perfect winter short break destination.
