Our #LoveYork Campaign – how you can get involved:

Our #LoveYork campaign continues to champion the city’s unique offer and promote our member businesses. We will be launching our Autumn and Christmas activity from 20 September and we will be working in partnership with LNER to promote travel by train from London. There will be outdoor advertising on the London Underground and on both Classic and Capital FM featuring key partners for this campaign York Minster, National Railway Museum, JORVIK Viking Centre, Castle Howard and the Grand, York.
