Promoting Heritage - Shaping Tomorrow

Welcome to our new website!

This version is designed to be simpler, less wordy with more images, and will contain features which we struggled to deliver on our 2009-designed website. Over the next few months, we aim to improve it even more — just keep visiting.

York Civic Trust is a membership organisation, run by volunteers for the benefit of all who live in, work in, or visit York. The Trust is open to all who wish to enhance and protect York’s architectural and cultural heritage, to champion good design and to advance the high place which York holds amongst the cities of the world.
