If you are planning on visiting York on a budget, check out our list of the best free things to do in York. York truly has medieval roots. It was founded by the Romans in around 71 A.D. when several thousand men marched from Lincoln and set up camp there. Originally known as Eboracum, York has been of significant historical interest ever since. Almost 800 years later, on November 1st 866,  just as York was celebrating All Saints' Day, the Vikings invaded and successfully took over the city. Much of this history has survived and today York is a vibrant city filled with reminders of times gone by. It is well worth a visit at any time of year. There is much to see and do and it is the perfect place to spend a weekend, or even longer. If you are looking for ideas of what to see
