Local Car and Van Hire in York

The ancient city of York makes an excellent destination, with its historic sights, superb shopping and lively cultural scene.

With a reliable, modern Enterprise vehicle at your disposal, you can easily make the short drive to the spectacular Castle Howard, just to the northeast of the city. For some retail therapy, head back into town and stroll through the medieval Shambles, packed with cosy cafes and independent shops. For a different angle on the city, try a Yorkboat cruise along the River Ouse. There are two Enterprise branches in central York. One is adjacent to York railway station, simple to reach by train or bus from the local area, or by road via the A1036. The second branch is just off the A1079 at Foss Islands Road, so is convenient to reach from the east of the city.
