In addition to York Minster the city has many historic attractions, cultural and sporting events, which makes it a very popular visitor destination.
In the 19th century the city became a hub of the national railway network in the United Kingdom and a centre for the manufacture of confectionary, although modern York's economy is largely based on the service sector and tourism.
