My Destination is focused on offering unrivalled levels of local information. This is what we pride ourselves on, and it's our promise to our users.
Therefore, each destination is run by a team on the ground who have their fingers on the pulse and write from a first-hand experience, whether they are trying out places to eat, visiting sites of interest, undertaking activities, exploring hidden 'secrets', and speaking to the locals who are 'in-the-know'. Our local experts take every effort to accurately capture this information through photography, videos, virtual tours and writings. It can be truly said that our content is fresh, local and 'hand-made'.
Our Local Experts in York
We are very happy to announce another franchise back in the UK, this time for the historical city of York that attracts over 7.1 million visitors a year. The franchise has been taken by Elaine Aldous who is lucky enough to have grown up and now be settled in this walled city.
After graduating as a mature student with a BA in Sociology and Politics, Elaine spent five years working with International students and was lucky enough to experience travel abroad as part of her career. This also led to Elaine undertaking a teaching qualification in Mexico where she taught English as a foreign language. Now back in the UK she decided to look for a franchise that was both interesting and exiting. She is very happy to have found MyDestination.com and so begins her next adventure.
“I was born in York and have always been surrounded by all of the fantastic things that millions of tourists come here to see every year but you never appreciate what you have known all of your life. It is only as I have got older and experienced travel all over the world that I can really appreciate the uniqueness of York.”
