Foodies should flock to York this weekend
17 September 2012
If you're a fan of food - and let's face it, who isn't - you should certainly consider heading to caravan sites in and around York this weekend.
From the Friday 21 until Sunday 30 September, the city will play host to its very own food festival, which will celebrate the past, present and the future of taste delights.
Those in attendance will be able to enjoy food and drink with a Roman, Viking, Middle Ages or Victorian theme.
If you like a tipple, you will also have the opportunity to learn the difference between proseco, cava and champagne.
What's more, you'll be able to feed the whole family on the cheap, with many restaurants throughout York offering special two-course menus for a fixed price during the festival. However, bookings must be made with the restaurants to ensure you get a spot and you must remember to mention that you are looking for a Festival Meal Deal.
While you're at the event, you should also hop on the Taste Trail. Purchase a booklet containing vouchers that will give you a taster and discount on any purchase at participating establishments.
There is no limit on the number of places you can visit, so you can really immerse yourself in the food and drink of York.
If your taste buds have been tempted, why not stay at Beechwood Grange Caravan Club Site? Located just off the outer ring road of York, you are just a short drive away from the action.
York's also a really great base to explore the areas of Thirsk and Harrogate, so if you want to swap the historic city for a more rural adventure you can.
Leeds and Hull aren't far away either, so you could pop along to the Royal Armoury or The Deep for approximately an hour's journey.
