York is the county town of Yorkshire – it was founded by the Romans as Eboracum in 71 A.D. and has remained steeped in history ever since. York has a population of 205,000, with just under 10 percent being students attending the University. The university, together with health care, are the biggest employers in the area. The 19th century saw the city become an important hub for the developing railway network and as a centre for confectionery; Rowntree and Terry’s both established chocolate factories there. Today, the city’s economy is built around service industries and tourism. Car hire is the perfect solution for anyone who wants to tour North Yorkshire. There are three Enterprise locations in the city; 15 Foss Island, at the railway station and on Monks Cross Drive, Huntington, three miles from the centre. You might be in York on business, or perhaps you are in York for a relaxing break – let's face it, no one can complain that there isn’t plenty to see and do, both in and around the city itself and further afield.
