Solicitors in York

York has a long history that dates back to the establishment of a settlement by the Romans in 71 AD. The name York derives from its time under Viking rule around 8 centuries later. And more recently, because of York’s central location between London and Edinburgh the city has become a centre for commerce. The economy itself is overwhelmingly service-based with most of the population of the city working in this sector.

As York is also located on the River Ouse, transport links have always been excellent. With the arrival of the railway the city boomed. Today, a diverse range of businesses now have their headquarters in the city. These corporations include insurance, telecoms and also confectionery (a link to York’s past, as it was a centre for chocolate manufacture). Tourism is also now a major industry for York.
