Pubs in and around York

The first in a new series from Destinworld Publishing looking at the history and heritage of the public house in different parts of the country.

Pubs In & Around York celebrates many of the Yorkshire city’s most historic and well-known establishments and their individual stories.

The book also looks at the social impact of the public house on the people of York and its neighbouring villages, as well as the work done by the Rowntree family and the Quaker temperance movement.

More than just a photographic local history guide, this is a comprehensive, interesting and well-illustrated book which is sure to fascinate both York locals and tourists to the city.

Alongside the compelling text and history are over a hundred photographs and illustrations of York pubs past and present.
